I have been watching the development of Shaper Origin for a while and they are about to start shipping production models. It is a handheld router CNC that allows you to cut designs on any size material. It uses a special tape with fiducial markers on it, a computer vision system and articulated motor mount to auto-correct your hands as you cut out designs. I have been looking at CNCs machines for a while but their foot print is just too big to fit in my shop. The Origin seemed like the perfect solution. No bed size limit, compact when not in use, you can CNC the ends of boards and whole boat load of other cool features.
So yes, I now have another brand new fancy cutting tool on pre-order (I’m in Batch 2, delivery starts in January). If you check it out and want to get one too, use this link and we both get $100 off.
