The Othermill is a portable, computer controlled, 3-axis mill that is specifically designed for use at home or in a small workspace. Our objective is to build a mill that is compact, clean, and quiet enough for use at home, yet is precise enough for high level electrical and mechanical prototyping work. The Othermill will be at home on your desk, in your workshop, or on your kitchen table.

Obviously a barrel is a no go. They're a dime a dozen and like the rest of components other than the receiver dont require FFL intervention.
Finishing an 80% AR or 1911 lower should be no sweat for this box.
This is just the first step to taking CNC milling to the masses who are otherwise unable or unwilling to do the work with a real mill and lathe.
The 3d print jobs went from AR mag to lower to full gun and then some in just a couple of months and just yesterday a new P90 style AR lower was released.
What matters is widespread adoption of a tool or method. After that the progress is exponential.
I can finish an 80% lower with a drill press. You obviously can machine one proper. But we're not everybody. This sort of prefab package is for "everybody."
