  • Uenexpected Error While Exporting
    Brandon Medina | March 09, 2019 Verified Download (What's this?)

    This plugin is amazing, but I recently started getting an unexpected error telling me to check the log. Not sure if someone else has been experiencing this, but I'm getting "Failed in getOrientedBodyFailed" and "Failed in ExportCommandExecuteHandlerFailed" from the log.  Not exactly sure what these mean, but before I was able to export out bodies and now I can only export out sketches to SVG.


  • A must have for every CAD user

    I had some issues creating SVGs for the Shaper Origin in the beginning. Being a CAD guy, I'm not familiar with Illustrator et al.

    Now it's super easy to create a sketch in Fusion 360 and importing it to SVG. Just tick "Advanced" and use "Entire Sketch". With the new version it's even easier to export text to SVG.


  • Makes SVG Easy
    Marc Freilich | March 19, 2018 Verified Download (What's this?)

    This made the process of getting designs onto the Shaper Origin almost completely effortless, without fumbling with export settings, or post processing in another tool.


  • Plugin Disaapears
    Christopher Golin | February 02, 2018 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Plugin works amazing. The only problem is its absence every time I open Fusion.

    I have the same issue. I can't find the option in Fusion 360. Did you work out a solution? I don't have any option for exporting to shaper origin.


  • Simply excellent
    Martin Anderson | January 04, 2018 Verified Download (What's this?)

    This is almost ridiculously useful. If you need an SVG, you need this. Kudos to the Shaper folks for making it available.


  • Great plugin
    Mark Evans | December 22, 2017 Verified Download (What's this?)

    This little plugin simply outputs a color-coded SVG file. It works great. Written for the Shaper Origin, it eliminates any need to use an are program like Inkscape to get what you need with this device. Also, while written for the SO, this also works great for Glowforge users. The color coding is not specific to the Glowforge but the operation type can quickly be changed in the Glowforges UI.


    Laird Popkin | December 06, 2018

    As the owner of both a GlowForge and SO I find this plugin extremely useful. You can literally load the same SVG into both devices. For example, I laser cut an acrylic sheet to inlay into wood carved with the Shaper Origin. Worked great!


  • Works as intended!

    Great plugin to use with Shaper Origin handheld CNC! Nice and simple.
