Why ShopBot Tools?

Equipping a makerspace typically calls for a variety of digital fabrication tools such as CNC, laser cutters, and 3D printers. These tools, in addition to traditional shop tools, can become a significant investment. ShopBots are increasingly popular for the value that they provide: reliable, professional performance for an affordable cost.

Versatility is another important consideration. ShopBot Tools enable you to cut, carve, and mill a number of materials including wood, MDF, HDPE, plexiglas, soft metal such as aluminum, and styrofoam. This flexibility allows you to meet the fabrication needs of many types of users.

With ShopBot, you get more than just the tool.

We support you with a range of services to help your community get the most out of CNC technology. Of particular interest is our community, where businesses such as makerspaces can list their services and encourage participation at their space.


Each new ShopBot tool comes bundled with two powerful software programs to create CNC projects.
