Have you seen the Shaper Origin? It’s pretty amazing. It offers the power of a CNC router in a hand-held unit. It uses tape you place on the work surface to determine its location and active motion control to precisely make the cuts you need. We’ve got a great video that helps explain exactly how the Origin works.

What about the design aspect?

Intimidated by the prospect of designing your own CNC-cut projects? Shaper has taken this into consideration and created the Shaper Hub.

What is the Hub?

The Shaper Hub is home to over 1600 projects that you can easily download and create. From small scale to large, boxes to furniture, there is an incredible amount of information available via the Hub. The site is searchable, making it easy to find the project you’re looking for.

Hardware files

Have an intricate piece of hardware to install? There’s a good chance there’s a file for it on the Hub: concealed hinges, knife hinges, ball catches, quadrant hinges, etc. There are SO many different hardware files available. Letting in hardware is a great application for the Origin, and having the files premade and available is worth its weight in gold.


So, you find the file you need. How do you get it from the interwebs to the Origin? There are a few ways you can do this. You can download the file on your computer, put it on a flash drive, and take the flash drive to your Origin. Or you can download directly to the Origin via WiFi. Both processes are simple.

The Shaper Hub is a great addition to the already incredible Shaper Origin.
