Origin simplifies precision cutting - think of it as auto-correct for your hands!
Shaper makes Origin, the world's first handheld CNC machine. Origin combines precision and repeatability with unprecedented flexibility. Designed with professional woodworkers in mind, Origin simplifies complex activities and workflows in woodshops and fabrication facilities across the country.
Origin is the world’s first computer-assisted hand-held plunge router. Avoid the envelope limits of traditional CNC machines and tackle projects at a wide range of scales with a single, compact tool. Over-The-Air software updates mean that, unlike other power tools, Origin gets better and more powerful the longer you own it.
Use Origin’s intuitive touch screen interface to place designs in your workspace and set cut specs on the fly. Origin automatically calculates toolpaths for you - no programming required.
Origin’s onboard computer moves the spindle 100 times per second to keep the cutting bit right on the toolpath. All you have to do is keep Origin close to the toolpath shown on the screen.
Custom-designed Shaper Systainer makes it easy to safely transport Origin to and from the worksite, and store it conveniently at the end of the day.
