The Shapeoko 3 is designed to be affordable enough for any workshop and powerful enough to do high-quality work. With this 3-axis CNC machine, you'll be able to create intricate 2D & 3D designs from a range of different materials. 

There are three different versions of the Shapeoko, the Standard, the XL and the XXL. The main difference is the size of the cutting area, the XL is double the cutting area of the Shapeoko 3, and the XXL has four times the cutting area for your biggest projects. 

Please Note: The DeWalt DWP-611 shown in the pictures is not included.

The best CNC router for your workshop

The Shapeoko 3 comes with everything you need to create accurate part/models from wood, plastic and even aluminium. It'll work with a range of other materials from Carbon Fibre to PCBs!

Shapeoko Cnc Router Kit


It's the most powerful and rigid CNC machine you could want

Shapeoko is based on a custom aluminium extrusion that serves as both the frame and the motion system. Aluminium 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.

Shapeoko Cnc Router Kit


The most powerful CNC router in its class. It uses a 1.25 hp spindle and NEMA 23 motors for motion control

The most hackable CNC router 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 Shapeoko comes with all the tools you'll need!

When you buy a Shapeoko, you get the following:

  • A Shapeoko CNC router kit
  • All the tools you need to put it together
  • Design software (Carbide Create)
  • Control Software (Carbide Motion)
  • .25” Carbide Cutter

We'd highly recommend looking at the Touch Probe which is a small accessory piece for your Shapeoko meant to assist in finding the edges, or datums of the part you are milling.

Fantastic machine - pretty good service

I would reccomend researching thoroughly before purchase - only had a couple of snagging problems which are quite well known on the forums and sorted out within a couple of hours. Par for the course I suppose. The packaging was excellent (almost excessive), the delivery was prompt. I was waiting on the shipment into the UK and I was kept updated very well by the team at cool components. I was going to wait for a slightly cheaper supplier, but I couldn't put up with their inability to communicate! The assembly instructions do have a lot of room for improvement - certainly not as good as I would hope for the money. My only gripe was having to buy a US to UK converter, but that's not the worst thing to have happened. Only done a few runs, it has powerful and very competent. Thoroughly reccomended from a mediocre to occasionally pretty good DIYer.


Shapeoko XXL

My husband was so thrilled to use his new toy. As this is his first CNC, he did not know what to expect, but he's 100% satisfied with what he's got. Arrived on time and well packaged. A great experience from Cool Components. Thank you. Tips 1, You will need an extra pair of hands to lift the package when it arrives (on a pallet). 2, Take your time setting it up. 3, Read the instructions, read read read. 4, Expect to spend more money on router bits. 5, Buy a touch probe. 6, Never expect to see your husband. Thank you Cool Components he loves it and so do i.


Under promised and over delivered.

Recently purchased a Shapeoko XL and it is just fantastic. The build was straight forward, the components are of great quality and the resulting cuts from this gadget are just amazing. The combination of large gantry sections and the recommended dewalt router really do make removing material a breeze. Have used cnc devices for a while and this is so much more solid in every axis than I have experience in any other comparable device. Extremely pleased with my purchase.
