Shapeoko 3

The Shapeoko milling machines are designed by Carbide 3D to be affordable enough for any shop and powerful enough to do real work. The kit includes everything you need to get started except the Dewalt trim router.

The Shapeoko 3 comes with everything you need to make accurate parts from wood, plastic, and aluminum.

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.
