Win an annual Shaper Studio subscription – worth £109!

In conjunction with Shaper Tools, we're giving one lucky reader the chance to win an annual subscription to Shaper Studio – their brand-new web-based design tool.

In 2018, Shaper launched Origin – the world’s first handheld CNC router – and since then, they’ve been on a mission to make precision cutting easy and accessible to craftspeople everywhere.

With the recent launch of Plate – the universal template for Origin – Shaper is once again demonstrating how intuitive digital workflows can be integrated into traditional workshops.


Studio is designed for use with both laptops and touchscreen devices, such as phones and tablets

Shaper Studio – a simplified 2D design tool – will further optimise workshop workflows. Studio aims to focus on the features that matter most to craftspeople, short-circuiting the path from idea to production, and omitting the unnecessary and confusing features that have crept into one-size-fits-all design software.

Simply put, Studio helps users spend more time making and less time fussing with a computer, and no CAD experience is required.


Create unique designs with ShapeShifter

From idea to cut-ready file in minutes

Bring your idea to life with easy-to-use design and layout tools. Create basic shapes, add text, and scale using real-world units, with Studio’s ShapeShifter – an intuitive shape combining tool that further speeds up the design process – or browse the extensive design library of millions of pre-made designs to add or customise your project.

Change from Plan to Cut mode and fine-tune cut paths by adjusting bit diameter and offsets. You can also review a design and visualise it to identify potential obstacles prior to cutting.

A design studio in your pocket

Studio is web-based, making it easy to produce and edit designs on your phone, tablet or computer, allowing you to design anywhere and stay in the flow at all times. Also, Studio is built to ensure it’s easy to use for all sorts of digital fabrication tools.

You can save and export an SVG file, sync directly to Shaper Origin or use the .SVG output with vinyl cutters, laser cutters, desktop CNC machines, and more.
