Danielle Applestone was using a DARPA grant to develop low-cost computer numerical control (CNC) machines for schools when the funding dried up. She didn't waver. Applestone simply took a CNC mill her engineering team had designed and launched a consumer products company. The Othermill, priced at just under $2000, can etch circuit boards and carve complex 3D shapes in metal, wood, and other materials. Best of all, it's small and quiet enough to sit on a kitchen table. Like desktop 3D-printer firms, Other Machine Co. is converting an industrial technology into a tool for everyone.
