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.

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.
