A year ago, ShopBot introduced a Handibot, a portable CNC tool. They also adopted an open philosophy that invited users to help push the new tool in new directions.

This year, the ShopBot team brought the Handibot to MakerCon with two new accessories: a rotary tool and a five-access tool. Both tools push the CNC machine towards 3D — giving users an alternative to 3D printing.

Ted Hall, the founder of Shopbot Tools, Inc., stopped by Make:’s press room to tell us about the new capabilities.

One of the places where DC can be found online is Google+ (which I’m adding here only because I want to see if by adding “rel=author” and “rel=me” to those two links I can get Google to display my picture in its search results.)

Hey, it works!
