ORIGIN by Shaper: More than you can imagine

Origin by Shaper allows you to bring to life the designs you imagined. You can use Origin to create designs wherever you work. Make adjustments on-site, on the fly, and no computer is required.

You wont need tool programming or CAM file preparation because 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.

How Origin Works

location tracking + active motion control = precision freehand cutting

Origin locates itself in a workspace and makes continuous real-time adjustments while the user is cutting. The result is precision — wherever you need it.

Complex cuts, anywhere

From a custom flooring installer’s expansive musical staff inlay to a luthier’s delicate fretboard, Origin is able to cut accurately at an unmatched range of scales.
