This was a playful skill builder experiment using the Other Mill.

Being confined to such a small CNC maker forced me to scale down the project: a flapping butterfly automata.

On the Other mill I cutted the box (out of plywood and MDF wood) and the CAM system (also MDF wood)

For the rest of the system I had to use other materials:

  • Brass wire
  • Tin shits
  • Felt
  • Memory wire


  • Othermill CAD and CAM
