Shaper Utilities


Shaper Utilities will provide a range of workflow improvements enhancing Shaper products.

Initially, Shaper Origin (our handheld CNC) receives a two-click export feature. Eliminating the time lost to complicated and cumbersome export procedures.

Origin users will appreciate spending their time fabricating, iterating, and experimenting on their terms.


Verzió 1.7.0, 2023. 09. 15.
Python updated for compatibility with the current python shipped with Fusion Fixed: Solid body layout selection filtering was ignoring bodies that were narrower than they were tall Fixed: In sketch mode, non exploded text now exports correctly Fixed: Solid body layout now exports depths more predictably Fixed: Attempting to export linked components now displays a warning rather than failing Fixed: Exporting no longer triggers the file modified asterix in the top bar

  • Current Version No Longer Works Correctly
    ANTHONY EVANS | július 10, 2024 Ellenőrzött letöltés (Mit jelent ez?)

    I've loved this utility but the current version doesn't work correctly with the newest version for Fusion. It does not export the correct face and is unable to export certian geometries. It makes most of wha I use Fusion for useless. Is there a fi for this in the works?

    Sam Cuttriss | július 11, 2024

    we are working on a fix to the problem you are seeing, in the mean time we have a simple work around:

    Grant Fernandez | július 12, 2024

    I came here looking for help too! Something was changed recently that breaks the exporting. I am stuck! It has work for so long but just stopped.

  • Utilities for other Shaper tools?
    Bas S | június 28, 2024 Ellenőrzött letöltés (Mit jelent ez?)

    Would be nice if the 'shaper utilities' had more functionality than just for the Origin.
    For example, i have the Shaper Trace; these utilities would be great if they let me import my traces / svg's from shapertools files directly into Fusion360.

  • This is awesome, a great help!
    Jeffery Seiffert | május 30, 2024 Ellenőrzött letöltés (Mit jelent ez?)

    This has been such a great help and it works great.

    I mostly use it for cutting pieces on my Laser but I will be using my CNC Router soon and it will be great for that too.

    The only suggestion I would like to make is that the file name of the SVG be the same as the Name of the model file with version instead of Body1.svg when saving the file.

    A minor thing I can live with but it would be a great help if future releases are made.

    Fred Lefevre | május 02, 2024 Ellenőrzött letöltés (Mit jelent ez?)

    Running Sonoma 14.4.1 on a M3 Mac with 64GB of ram.  No other apps running other than Fusion.  Downloaded Shaper Origin today.  It runs pretty quickly up to Compute Finished and then I get the spinning globe and Fusion is shown as Not Responding in the Activity Manager.  I've let it run for some time with no change.  I have to force quit fusion.  I would really like to use this as the alternative is $500.  Thanks for any suggestion!  Rating a 5 in the hope that this will work :)

    I had the same installation problems as Ken Kreshtool on May 07, 2020. His advice saved me a lot of time because the installation appeared to be successful, but I still didn't see anything. That way, within a few minutes I had the SharperUtilities.bundle in the right place and it was running like clockwork. I give the tool 5 stars, I would rather not rate the installation. The configuration was this:

    Are you able to communicate some specifics of what you are seeing? Please include the text you see in any error displayed or a description of what steps produce the issue We have tested it successfully on all hardware and software we have available. What os ( mac / win ) and version? can you confirm you have uninstalled all old copies of Shaper Utilities ( look for them in the fusion utilities / addons menu ) can you confirm you were able to download and install 1.7.0? if not, what errors did you see? do you see an error mentioning shaper utilities when starting fusion? do you see shaper utilities 1.7.0 listed as installed an running in the utilities / addon menu? can you confirm the Shaper Utilities icon is present in the ui in the design/utilities tab at the top of the screen? does the shaper utilities panel display when clicking the button? if not are there errors? are you able to export in regular single solid body mode? are you able to export in all modes?

    the message you are seeing is not an error, just a warning that Fusion is going to update soon, when it does you will need to download a new version of shaper utilities. you should see the shaper button displayed in the design > utilities tab. Shaper Utilities has been tested, and works correctly on windows 11 If you have any more info you can share that would help diagnose what is going wrong. eg: are you seeing shaper utilities displayed and running in the addons menu? ( design>utilities>addons/addons ) ?

  • Valuable Utility
    Charles Gordon | augusztus 01, 2023 Ellenőrzött letöltés (Mit jelent ez?)

    This is a livesaver for my workflow, which is currently producing output to Cricut cutters for balsa RC models. Let's not get into how many frustrating weeks it took to figure it all out end-to-end from DevWing to the crap Cricut software you have to use. However, every time I use it, it reminds me of the very cool Shaper Origin which may be a more useful option for me (on the woodworking side) than a fixed CNC table setup.

  • Converting sketches with construction lines outputs wrong line colour intermittently
    Thomas Wren | július 07, 2023 Ellenőrzött letöltés (Mit jelent ez?)

    I am designing 2D pattern pieces using sketches; using normal lines for cutting, and construction lines for engraved detail. 

    When running the plug in I select input type as ‘entire sketch’ and check ‘export construction’. 

    This gives me what I want in most cases but there always seems to be at least one element where the line colour on the SVG (black for normal, blue for construction) is wrong.

    There are a number of pattern pieces within a sketch and most output the correct line colours but theres always part of one piece that is always wrong.

    I have redrawn the element that output wrong to see if that fixed the problem and it hasn’t.


    sam cuttriss (Közzétevő) | július 10, 2023

    thanks for taking the time to provide feedback, this one is squrrely, SVG shapes can only carry one fill / stroke across the whole shape, whereas fusion can mix and match line types for each segment. ie in fusion a rectangle can have 3 sides as regular lines and one side a construction line. but an svg will need to choose one or the other. And thats excaly what shaper utilities does for you ( which i can see being a little confusing ) to work around this find the point constraints at the path type transitions in the fusion sketch you wish to export and delete them. they will now be exported as two separate paths each with their own cut type encoding. keep in mind the paths will not be closed any more so you will only be able to use them as online cuts ( not inside / outside / pocket ) on origin unless you intend to take them into Shaper Studio for further manipulation.

    I'm getting an error when trying to use this version with the latest Fusion 360. Some "changes" to the API:

    API Error! Due to some internal changes made to the Fusion 360 API, the Add-In: 'ShaperUtilities' from 'Brian Ekins' cannot be loaded. You need to install a new version of the Add-In that is compatible with this version of Fusion 360.

    Richard Simon | január 31, 2023

    I get this too and I installed the latest version of the plugin to make sure.

    sam cuttriss (Közzétevő) | február 02, 2023

    search your computer to be sure there is not an old version of ShaperUtilities.bundle installed elsewhere. the current version 1.6.10 will not display an error running the most recent fusion Fusion 360 2.0.15291 x86_64 ( win 10 pro )

    Levent Unal | február 25, 2023

    I looked everywhere and cannot find Shaprer utils installed anywhere else. The details window on the Add-Ins section in Fusion 360 points to the correct This app no longer works with Fusion 360 2.0.15299 x86_64 (Windows 10 Pro 22H2) The link provided by the error takes me to this page: ; Which basically says that complied python code is no longer OK with Fusion 360. It is perhaps working for you because you work at the company and you have a non-compiled version of the python. 'The message you received results from an add-in loaded on your machine that has compiled Python code that will be incompatible with the next update of Fusion 360 or is incompatible with the current version of Fusion 360. This message is displayed when Fusion 360 upgrades to a newer version of Python, and add-ins compiled against the previous version will no longer work.'

    sam cuttriss (Közzétevő) | február 28, 2023

    Levent, 1.6.10 was released primarily to address the python change you reference. I assure you, the Shaper team downloads and uses Shaper Utilities exactly the same way our customers do. I would recommend making a note of the directory its installed in, in my case on windows: C:\Users\[user name]\AppData\Roaming\Autodesk\ApplicationPlugins uninstall using the regular windows add / remove programs and applications workflow then double check its gone, deleting the ShaperUtilities.bundle if need be. to be extra cautious search your C: drive for ShaperUtilities to make sure no older installs exist. restart you computer ( once again just being cautious ) then redownload and install the addon i hope that will see you right, message me if you are still having issues

    Levent Unal | március 05, 2023

    Hi Sam, Thank you! I deleted "ShaperUtilities.bundle" under "C:\Users\[user name]\AppData\Roaming\Autodesk\ApplicationPlugins" and reinstalled the plugin and now it works flawlessly. One strange thing to keep in mind though: I had version 1.6.10 installed and working before, I think it somehow it got corrupted after a Fusion 360 upgrade. Reinstalls did not fix the problem until I deleted the folder and re-installed it as you recommended. Thanks again for your help and providing the add-in to the community of makers.

    sam cuttriss (Közzétevő) | február 02, 2023

    Solid body layout expects the bodies to be laid out on the X/Y plain. it has an overly aggressive constraint that tests bodies to make sure they are wider than they are tall. as a temporary work around try reducing the height (in Z) of the bodies you wish to export so they are wider in XY than they are tall, but beware, the depth value will need to be corrected on Origin to get the correct results.

    John Frazier | május 03, 2022

    I too have this same issue. In speaking with the developers it seemed to have something to do with the free license though nothing conclusive. I personally have never been able to click the button fast enough when the dialog appears and then disappears. I have tried this hundreds of times and it is rare that the dialog persists. Ultimately you have to keep trying and trying until you get the dialog to remain and then successfully export your SVG. It got bad enough that I had to ask somebody else to export a couple of files for me. Please fix this.

    Zareh Zakarian | november 12, 2021 Ellenőrzött letöltés (Mit jelent ez?)

    Hope someone can help me. I love this plugin, however, it's been giving me an error while exporting which i cannot figure out. the error is "Error in calculating circle defined by 3 points. The points must be unique." after the error I get "An unexpected error occurred while executing the Shaper Origin Export command." It tells me to look in the log file but nothing in the log file makes sense to me. I searched online and could not fine any fixes or solutions. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    Chris O'Connor | február 04, 2024

    I have found what was causing it. When I trimmed a curve from an offset curve and there were 3 points along that curve, that is what was causing the error. How I solved it was I made an arc with the 3-point arc tool along the same line as the offset curve then deleted the original trimmed offset curve. Once I did that to all the curves that had that and tried to export again the error was no longer popping up.

  • Pretty Sure It's AMAZING!!!
    Michaelgreen06 Michaelgreen06 | május 11, 2021 Ellenőrzött letöltés (Mit jelent ez?)

    I've been trying to figure out how to export designs from F360 into Design Space by Cricut in order to rapidly prototype box designs. It has been really frustrating that no DXF export tools will properly export my curves. This tool seems to do a fantastic job exporting all features. I espescially love that I can export an entire sketch.

    I'm still trying to figure out how to draw/export properly so the segments I want show up as unique segments. This is my problem and not a problem of the app.

    Thanks so much shaper!!

  • So close and yet so far! No Flat Pattern support?
    Nate Bezanson | március 11, 2021

    If you're hoping to use this with parts designed in the sheetmetal workspace, hope again, cuz it's a total pain. Jump into a flat pattern and the tool disappears, so here's the workaround:

    In the flat pattern, "export as DXF". Then File, Upload, and send that DXF right back into the cloud from whence it came. Now, open the DXF as its own design, and use this plugin on it.

    For designs that don't have cutouts or holes, you're done, this works. But for designs that do have interior features, more suck awaits:

    For some reason, this can't export an entire design at once, only the outer profiles or the interior features, not both. Those come out as separate files, and then you need to merge them somehow, preferabily while preserving alignment. I'm still working on a good way to do this.

    btw, I had no issues installing from the Windows installer downloaded from here.


    This plug-in just saved me hours!

  • Not installing properly
    Amaury Lemal | május 17, 2020 Ellenőrzött letöltés (Mit jelent ez?)

    installed it, restarted Fusion 360, and nothing is happening no Shaper icon, no nothing. I tried @Ken Kreshtool way but unfortunately is not working either for me.

    Is there any other plugin that do work to export to svg?

    Carlos Carbonell | július 12, 2020

    It took me a while, but look for it under the tab "Tools", it's there, and it works!

    Robert Zabel | október 14, 2021

    @ Carlos: Thank you so much!

    alaxandre gallagher | december 09, 2021

    thank you! I had the same issue, thank you guys for helping me out!!!

    Same thing happen to me. I eventually found it on the TOOLBAR under UTILITIES.

  • Correct install location
    Ken Kreshtool | május 07, 2020 Ellenőrzött letöltés (Mit jelent ez?)

    Hello folks,


    [EDITED June 3, 2020]

    I had a terrible time getting the new ShaperUtilities (Export to Origin) v1.5 installed into Fusion 360 (Mac OS) today. The installer failed. And none of the manual installation instructions were correct. They were just wrong as to the location in which to manually install the bundle. I wasted over 2 hours on this.


    The correct answer seems to be this, if the installer fails:


    VERSION 1: Manually install the "ShaperUtilities.bundle" file into the folder 

    [user]/Library/Application Support/Autodesk/ApplicationPlugins/




    VERSION 2: Manually install the "ShaperUtilities.bundle" file into the folder 

    [user]/Library/Containers/com.autodesk.mas.fusion360/Data/Library/Application Support/Autodesk/ApplicationPlugins


    Why 2 options? Because there are two very slightly different versions of Fusion 360, with different folders for where plug-ins go! If you downloaded it directly from Autodesk, use Version 1. If you downloaded it from the Mac App Store, use Version 2 (the ".mas" in the pathname = "mac app store").  In real life, you might have both — or remnants of both — on your Mac, like I do. Maybe I downloaded first from the Mac App Store and then downloaded a newer version directly from Autodesk? Crazy & confusing! Is there any easy way to know which version you are actually using? No. 


    I *think* it’s OK to install a copy of ShaperUtilities.bundle in both locations, if you have both locations available on your computer. YMMV. 


    As soon as I installed in location 1, and re-started Fusion 360, the “Export to Origin” icon — black circle with white triangle — was right there in the Tools tab. And the plugin is working fine, just like it used to before Fusion 360 changed things that necessitated the update to the plugin. 


    Can you please update your online installation instructions? I spent over 2 hours fighting with this. What a waste of time!!!





    P.S. You can extract the ShaperUtilities.bundle file from the .pkg file using the app called Pacifist.


    P.P.S. A lot of installation headaches are recently being caused by needing to give permission in Mac's System Preferences > Security & Privacy > Privacy ... either "Accessibility" or "Full Disk Access". That wasn't the problem for me here — the installer failed for me even with those permissions given. 

    Dennis Schuif | május 13, 2020

    Thank you SO much for this!!!

    Amaury Lemal | május 17, 2020

    that didn't work for me at all, the icon won't show up no matter what I do 😔

    Andre Wolfram | június 20, 2020

    Thank you for this it is working fine now !

    Curt Schulz | augusztus 17, 2020

    Saved the day, thanks!!!!

    Jesse Ross | november 07, 2020

    This was beyond helpful, Thank you. The bundle was extracted from the .pkg with Pacifist, added to both of the paths until it appeared in the Add-Ins. Pressed Run and the Shaper Icon Appeared. Again Thank You

    Caleb Stone | január 26, 2021

    I was able to install ShaperUtilities.bundle and placed it in both locations. When I click on the "add-ins" button the option to run shaper utilities is available, but nothing happens when I run it. I cannot for the life of me figure this out.

  • Still not appearing in MacOS - please clarify
    First Last | április 18, 2020 Ellenőrzött letöltés (Mit jelent ez?)

    @san cuttriss - Same problem with MacOS here, and still not working:

    I tried the green + method you mentioned in a previous reply, but when navigating to the ShaperUtilities.bundle it is greyed out in the file selector that appears after clicking +.  It will not allow me to select it?

    I can find ShaperUtilities.bundle in this location:
    $HOME/Library/Containers/com.autodesk.mas.fusion360/Data/Library/Application Support/Autodesk/ApplicationPlugins/ShaperUtilities.bundle
    and there is also a symbolic link to that file, from this location:
    $HOME/Library/Application Support/Autodesk/ApplicationPlugins/ShaperUtilities.bundle

    Could you please clarify which is the correct location?  Would it be possible to just copy it to that location?  Or does it have to be added with "+", and why does that not work?

    Also, please clarify if it is required to add it both under the Script and the AddIns tab.  Your answer seems to suggest both, but not why this is the case. 

    Amaury Lemal | május 17, 2020

    I tried that as well and there is indeed no way to select "ShaperUtilities.bundle" has it is greyed out. Any other suggestions?

  • Awesome & thanks for the update!
    Julian Rendell | október 25, 2019 Ellenőrzött letöltés (Mit jelent ez?)

    It's a great tool, and I was worried that it might be abandoned when it stopped working with the latest Fusion360 releases.

    Delighted to see it not only updated to be compatible, but also improved- hopefully no more weird line weight scaling 'features'!


    Bart Bries | november 17, 2019

    Hello, you say that you have working it on the latest Fusion 360 release. I am trying to get it to work on version 2.0.6670, but after installation, it doesn't show up in Fusion. Any ideas on how to fix this?

    Jason Wilhelm | január 02, 2020

    I can't get the plugin to show up in Fusion 360. I've tried all the prescribed problem solving methods described in the help document for Mac OS.

    Gerd Müller | február 24, 2020

    Same Problem here: it does not show up. Any advice? Fusion 360 version: 2.0.7438 MacOS Catalina 10.15.3

    sam cuttriss (Közzétevő) | február 25, 2020

    Anyone struggling with mac installation, Fusion has a tendancy to install the addin to an old incorrect location. assuming the install succeeded, you ought to be able to manually direct fusion to the shaper utilities addin by clicking the geen "+" button in the tools>addins>scripts and addins> addins tab. Search your system for "ShaperUtilities.bundle" ( it can be in the old mac store location ) restart fusion, check the shaper utilities addin is listed in the addin menu, and make sure it is running. ( click the run at startup option ) and you should be good to go.

  • Uenexpected Error While Exporting
    Brandon Medina | március 09, 2019 Ellenőrzött letöltés (Mit jelent ez?)

    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
    Ralf Steck | január 04, 2019 Ellenőrzött letöltés (Mit jelent ez?)

    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
    Alexander Freilich | március 19, 2018 Ellenőrzött letöltés (Mit jelent ez?)

    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 | február 02, 2018 Ellenőrzött letöltés (Mit jelent ez?)

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

    Propscientist Propscientist | március 08, 2018

    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 | január 04, 2018 Ellenőrzött letöltés (Mit jelent ez?)

    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 Ellenőrzött letöltés (Mit jelent ez?)

    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!
    Florian Horsch | december 06, 2017 Ellenőrzött letöltés (Mit jelent ez?)

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