Showcasing the Shaper Origin CNC Handheld Router

As the world’s first computer-assisted handheld router, the Shaper Origin is the perfect tool if you need to create complex joinery, tight fitting box joints and much more! With Origin you can save time building templates and get straight to precision cutting. Plus, if you still need a physical template – Origin can build that too! Streamline your workflow today with the new CNC handheld router from Shaper Tools.

How does it work?

Working like a CNC machine where pre-programmed computer software dictates the movement of tools, Origin also features precision X, Y and Z axes to offer full auto correction for your hands. Unlike a traditional CNC, Origin has no table or gantry due to the fact it is handheld. This makes it ideal for small workshops where space is premium.

Designed with woodworking professionals in mind, Origin brings CNC-level precision to a router, for an ideal blend of human and machine. Thanks to the highly intelligent CNC router, it’s never been faster and easier to build custom templates, inlay hardware or customise projects for your clients. Simply follow the toolpath on the screen as you cut to create bespoke pieces.


Work accurately and efficiently

Use the incredible CNC handheld router to whip up a prototype in the workshop, making adjustments on the fly or bring it to a job site to work on an installation when there is no margin for error.

It’s also fantastic if you need to design an entire project from start to finish thanks to the intuitive on-tool CAD. The on-tool CAD (Computer Aided Design) features means you can draw basic shapes right on Origin. There’s also the option to transfer more advanced and technical drawings to the router via a USB stick, or wirelessly.

Last but not least, there are extensions. Think of them as apps for your Origin. Extensions are designed to respond to particular user needs and resolve specific pain points in common workflows. For ease of use and flexibility, you can generate text and box joints on the fly without using design software or physical templates, saving you time and effort allround.
