    Like all of our tools, each ShopBot Desktop is built here in the U.S. in our Durham, North Carolina headquarters. We use the highest quality parts so that you can count on the tool to perform for you for years to come:

    • The ShopBot Desktop has a welded aluminum frame and steel rails, giving this tool the heft and rigidity to do real projects. Others may use plastic parts in their smaller tools — ShopBot does not. We don't cut corners!
    • The ShopBot Desktop uses the same control and software as our full size tools. It runs ShopBot software and ships with the PartWorks design software, so it's fully compatible with other ShopBots and all of our ShopBot resources such as training, projects, and forums.
    • If you're new to digital fabrication, you'll find that the ShopBot Desktop has resources to help you. The Desktop's quick set-up, starter projects, and new ShopBotEASY interface will help you get to work on day one.
    • Customer support is available 7 days a week, including evenings, from our Durham headquarters. If you're just starting on the CNC learning curve or you've been "fabbing" for years, we have a knowledgeable, friendly support team that's ready to help. As one of our long-time ShopBotters has told us, "On a scale of 1 - 10, ShopBot gets a 30 for customer support."
