At the heart of this milling unit developed in San Francisco, California, is computer-aided image processing technology that tracks where the tool is on the workpiece so the cutting bit's position can be corrected automatically to ensure it faithfully follows a digital design. This makes users' lives a whole lot easier, as they merely need to guide the device while it automatically positions itself to achieve high-precision results.

Since the milling unit is guided by hand, the spindle is designed to even out any unsteady movements within its operating range and thus facilitate flawless, accurate cutting. Besides being the ideal piece of kit for processing wood, the Shaper Origin can also tackle solid surface materials. Thanks to its clever concept, cabinetmakers, carpenters and laypeople alike can make use of this nifty solution to customize floors and add a variety of finishing touches such as inlays or engravings - the choice is entirely yours!
