Subtraction - Othermill Milling Machine / Bantam

This was my first time using the Othermill Milling Machine.

We were given a skill builder but I had seen a photo on my phone of sketches a friend of mine had done and wanted to make on of the sketches.

I happened to be near Canal Plastics last week and snagged one of the small 2x2” acrylic. I had to play around a lot with the sizing and the turns for the character as the 1/8’’ bit can only handle so sharp of turns.

Thankfully since you can update it in the Bantam app it made playing with the corners so much simpler.

I think I’m going to try to make a series of these Weird Dogs and send them to my friend, but I will size up on the acrylic pieces and maybe get some smaller bits.
