Otherplan is visual, interactive, and performs all engineering and planning behind the scenes. Simply import a design file to see what the resulting product will look like. Then, just choose your material and tool, and you’re ready to cut. In five minutes, you’ll be making. Best of all, Otherplan is free.
Otherplan’s interface may be simple, but its core is anything but. Advanced users can enable BitBreaker mode, which allows full control of feeds, speeds, and other milling parameters.
Otherplan runs on Mac OS X 10.8 or higher. Although Otherplan works best with an Othermill, it can be used without any hardware. So load up your designs, simulate your creations, and export industry-standard G-Code for use in other apps.
Otherplan supports files from many popular design tools, and the list is constantly growing:
