Shaper Origin

Bring digital precision to the craft of woodworking with Origin – the handheld CNC router. Cut with unparalleled precision, flexibility and efficiency.

Origin is the world’s first hand-held CNC router. With onboard automatic cut correction, Origin makes precision cutting easy. Avoid the envelope limits of traditional CNC machines and tackle projects at a wide range of scales with a single, compact tool. With annual system updates and optional extensions, Origin is the only power tool that gets better with age. Create simple designs on the tool itself, or using Shaper Studio. You can also upload an existing design of your own. Additionally, Origin-ready files and hardware templates are available on ShaperHub.

Designed and engineered by Shaper in California. Assembled by Festool in Germany.

The Shaper Workstation combines with the Origin handheld CNC to create a precision cutting system that makes even the most demanding project approachable and intuitive. The extra-durable, pre-applied Shaper Tape surface allows Workstation to integrate with Origin’s computer vision system for simple setup and unrivaled production capabilities.

Shaper Plate

A universal template designed to install a wide range of hardware, inlay bow ties, round corners, route system 32 holes and so much more. Designed to Integrate with ShaperHub’s Hardware Catalog – a collection of hundreds of vetted digital hardware files – Plate makes it easy to say goodbye to drawers full of hardware templates you may have lying around.
