This workshop will look at the Shaper 3D Router and how it’s unique hardware and software has modernised routing. The Shaper allows for fine detail and highly accurate cutting of a wide variety of material surfaces, quickly and easily, without the constraints experienced with enclosed CNC Routers.


The session will:

- introduce you to the machine and its component parts

- demonstrate how to setup and use the router in a variety of situations

- give you hands on experience of using the router

- showcase additional items that can enhance the use of this versatile tool


The programme is available for SME’s across Sheffield, Barnsley, Doncaster, and Rotherham, as well as Chesterfield, North-East Derbyshire, Derbyshire Dales, Bolsover, and Bassetlaw.
