Saw this from Woodworker's Journal and though I would share.

still don't understand how this is a CNC. It looks like a router with an video camera/screen. Pretty neat aiming device but CNC? :?

This is part of their ad.

Using ShaperTape, Origin creates a digital map of your workpiece. Users place designs in the digital workspace and Origin uses your cutter diameter to automatically convert lines into toolpaths.

As the user moves along a toolpath, Origin makes continuous corrections to keep your cuts clean and precise, everytime.

So, it's not just a router with the user aiming. It has X,Y motion too. The user just gets the thing close and the CNC part does the X,Y correction. Got it . . . I think. I guess we'll have to wait for a demo until Richard gets one. :lol:
