Shaper Origin Handheld CNC Router

Offers all the convenience and accuracy of a CNC, but in a compact, portable package with no limits on workpiece size!

100% of 100

The Shaper Origin is the world's first computer-assisted handheld router. It works much like a traditional CNC, with X, Y and Z axes, but since it is handheld, with no table and gantry, it's both portable and exceptionally space-efficient for small shops. Simply follow the toolpath on the screen as you cut. As long as you stay in the general cutting area, the spindle will auto-correct 100X/second to keep the cutter in exactly the right position to within 1/100''. If you happen to wander too far off track, the bit will automatically retract, preventing damage to your workpiece. You can cut out precision shapes without the need for physical templates or a clamping system. Origin's intuitive touch screen interface lets you place designs in your workspace and set cut dimensions on the fly, and it automatically calculates toolpaths for you—no programming required. Load designs via WiFi from the ShaperHub website, from a computer with the included USB stick, or design your project right on the screen. Go from cutting out panels, to routing hinge mortises, to cutting joinery with just a few taps on the screen.


  • No limitations on the workpiece envelope—perfect for large projects that wouldn't fit on a traditional CNC
  • Compact and portable—stows neatly in the included Sys 5 T-Loc Systainer
  • To determine its position, the router reads the patterned Shaper Tape (included), which you adhere to the cutting area
  • Digitally adjusted X, Y and Z axes (left, right and depth-of-cut)
  • Automated Z-axis touch-off sensor sets Z-zero in just seconds
  • Touch screen with capacitive multi-touch full-color LCD
  • Wi-Fi enabled for transfer of design files via ShaperHub, and for receiving software updates
  • USB port allows easy offline transfer of design files
  • Works with standard vector files (.SVG)
  • Includes on-tool design capabilities
  • Precision motor is produced by Festool to Shaper specifications
  • Soft-start motor with overheating and overload safety shutoffs
  • Dust port and shroud are designed around the SM-1 spindle for optimal dust extraction
  • Dust port fits most standard 27mm (35mm O.D.) and 36mm suction hoses (e.g. Festool, Fein)
  • Includes a 6.5' adaptor hose with a 2-1/4'' O.D. nozzle for use with US-standard wet/dry vacs

Note: Choose from the standard version with 1-year warranty (#67155), or upgrade to the version with the 2-year Pro warranty (#60887) with live phone support and Rapid Replace protection for immediate shipping of a replacement unit in the event of a failure.

A must buy!
I purchased the Shaper Origin on their Original Crowd funding campaign and, man, it has been way better than imagined. What a great tool! I am proud to be a part of their great collaborative community and I just love being able to design something on Fusion 360, send it to my tool via their cloud, and turn the tool on, and there it is the cut. I have made many projects I am proud of, with a precision and quality unheard of. Buy this awesome tool! You can bring the tool to the work, and not be restricted by a bed size of a gantry tool. There is no size limit! Make it happen with tool.

Do I need to use fresh shaper tape for each project?
J b on Feb 25, 2020
BEST ANSWER: For smaller projects, the answer is no. We suggest some form of jig which allows you to butt your work up to another surface so you can reuse tape. For example, there are free projects on ShaperHub which allow you to fixture pieces so you don't have to tape up each new project. The tape is specifically designed to stick well once and then leave no residue when you remove it, so we don't suggest trying to unstick tape and use it again.

For larger projects you will tape up the sheet and remove it once it's done. One really cool thing about this is that each taped up board becomes a unique workspace that origin can recognize and return exactly where you left off even after many months.
does it come with any form of the programming software?
Kip P on Feb 25, 2020
BEST ANSWER: No tool programming or CAM file preparation is required.

Origin creates tool paths live on-tool. Use a 2D design program like Adobe Illustrator or a 3D program like Fusion 360. Export files as SVGs and you’re ready to cut.

Origin does however have simple design software directly on tool making it easy to make circles, rectangle, slots, text without any computer!

We have tons of information on this in the resources section of our website.
Is it compatible with coreldraw?
Jocelyn S on Feb 25, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Yes, Origin works with Coreldraw. Origin works with any vector app that can create SVG files.

The ShaperTools web site contains all the information you need to get up and running, including Coreldraw specific instructions: shapertools web page > resources > support > designing for Origin
Can this cut eva foam?
cary s on Apr 3, 2020
BEST ANSWER: It will be able to cut Eva foam. However make sure you get to correct router bit such as an EVA Foam Styrofoam Endmill Milling Cutting Cutter. You may need to add a thin layer of another material to the surface to add stiffness and allow the Shaper Origin to slide easily across the surface.
What are the prices of hub services?
Douglas W on Feb 25, 2020
BEST ANSWER: There are hundreds of free projects ready to be synced over Wi-Fi directly to Origin on ShaperHub. We also have ShaperAssist an online service which will take napkin sketches from you and quote how much it would cost to create an Origin ready file.

How do I use just the screen to write several lines of lettering, I can't fine an "enter", or return to obtain a new line?
Herbert B on May 22, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Currently the Humboldt version of software does NOT allow for multiline text via the text basic extension. You can easily create a grid first then use the text basic extension multiple times for alignment of multiple rows of text.
