What to look for in a CNC Router

It’s tough to compare CNC routers directly. They’re all just a little different, and some of those differences come down to preferences or subjective choices.

What’s included?

A CNC Router is just a part of a large system. To use it, you’ll need a lot of other components. Don’t worry, we include them with all Shapeoko CNC Routers.

Cutters - We include a #201 carbide endmill. We’ve got plenty more to choose from to add capabilities to your router.

Software - Carbide Create CAD/CAM software

Dust Collection - Sweepy Dust Boot

Workholding - Hybrid table (optional), Essential Clamps, and Teez-Nutz

Cutting Size

The most visible characteristic of a CNC Router is the cutting area, and it’s very simple- the bigger the machine, the larger the parts you can cut.

Shapeoko 4 - Available with cutting areas from 16x16” to 33x33”

Shapeoko Pro - Available with cutting areas from 16x16” to 33x33”

Shapeoko 5 Pro - Available with cutting areas from 24x24" to 48x48”

Shapeoko HDM - Available with a cutting area of 27x21”

Motion System

The motion system is the collection of slides that let the machine move, to the way to motors are connected to the various moving parts.

Shapeoko 4 - Shapeoko 4 uses V-wheel rollers, which are inexpensive and durable. They are less rigid than linear rails, but they’re a great blend of performance and value.

Shapeoko Pro — Shapeoko Pro uses linear bearings on every axis. Linear bearings are more rigid and have higher performance than V-wheels, but they need to be wiped down and kept clean for the longest life.

Shapeoko 5 Pro and Shapeoko HDM — Both use heavy-duty linear rails coupled with ball screws for maximum performance and rigidity.
