The Shapeoko CNC router

Updated on .

Carbide 3D has sold the Shapeoko CNC router since Edward Ford parted ways with Inventables in 2014. Its frame is made of unique aluminum extrusions that provide tracks for v-wheels to ride along, pulled by belts. The pro version uses linear rails instead of v-wheels.

It uses handheld trim routers as the cutting tool, typically with an ER11 collet to mount endmills and bits.
