Thread: Anyone have a Shaper Origin?

  1. #16
    Thanks for posting your actually experience, it really helps a lot. Usually it's just people spouting opinions based on other people spouting their opinions.

    On the Shaper forums there are plenty of examples along with the files and instructions if you want to see more examples.

    Thanks for the in-depth review and experience, Rob, greatly apprecieated. My first foray at Fusion 360 was not positive as it's a completely different beast than SketchUp, which I'm fairly proficient at. The book and on-line tutorials I tried also had inconsistencies with the version of Fusion 360 I downloaded, which added to my frustration. If you are saying may things can be done directly through the SO screen that should help a lot. However, one of the things I would want to do is produce parts for the horizontal router mortise that I now produce using jigs, and for that I will need to feed the SO files. So at some point I'd have to make the leap to Fusion 360 or another software to generate those files, or pay SO to do it, which goes against my independent and frugal nature.

    Yeah, the fine folks at Autodesk like to mess with the user interface so tutorials get broken...

    SketchUp should work so long as you can export an SVG file. It has been years since I've used SketchUp but I believe there is a plugin that can do this.
    Don't sweat the petty things and don't pet the sweaty things.
