Cut the Materials You Want- Aluminum, Wood and Plastic

Image (Asset 2/9) alt=

The Shapeoko works with a range of materials, wood, plastic, and aluminum are no problem.

We’ve even got customers cutting carbon fiber, PCB’s, and steel ( with a little extra preparation and precaution).

Shapeoko is the Most Powerful and Rigid Machine for Your Shop

Image (Asset 3/9) alt=

Shapeoko is based on a custom aluminum extrusion that serves as both the frame and the motion system. Aluminum is way cheaper than excuses so we made our extrusion much bigger than we needed to.

The rest of the frame is 10 gauge steel. We put extra bends in strategic locations to add more stiffness and powder coat the steel to make the finish as durable as possible.

The most powerful CNC machine in its class. It uses a 1.25 hp spindle and NEMA 23 motors for motion control

The most hackable CNC machine in its class. Use it as it comes, tilt up parts in front of the machine, or remove the table to give more clearance for parts. Drill holes and attach your own accessories. Customize it to suit your needs.

The most complete CNC machine in its class. Everything is included except the material you want to cut. There’s nothing more to buy.
