Handibot® Bridge' is a new way to take on large projects with portable CNC. An evolution of the original innovative, smart power tool that you can take anywhere and run from any WiFi-enabled device. Use Handibot® to perform precise and easily repeatable cutting, carving, machining, and milling operations. Work with wood, MDF, plastics, foams, and aluminum. All at the press of a button.The Handibot Bridge's rigid frame clamps onto large pieces of material up to 24" wide-allowing you to execute large projects with a series of accurate cuts; quickly sliding the Handibot down the length of your material. This is a tool optimized for tiling. What is tiling? Imagine trying to print a large photograph using just a small desktop printer. You might print the photo out on a dozen sheets of paper; each sheet containing a small part of the larger image. Once joined together in the proper order, the smaller sheets would form a larger image. Tiling applies that same strategy to cutting out large patterns with a small CNC router. Take a plan for a chair or a bookshelf-break the cut up into "tiles" that fit the tool-then move the tool across the material, stopping to cut out each tile as you go. How does the Handibot Bridge differ from its smaller cousin, the Handibot® Adventure Edition? With the cut length tripled from 8" to 24", the Handibot Bridge can cut the entire width of a 24" sheet of material in one pass (ideal for the 24" x 48" plywood sheets available at every hardware store and lumber yard), reducing the time required to set up and cut a large project by a factor of three, bridging the gap between the small, portable Handibot Adventure Edition and the wood shop workhorse ShopBot Desktop.Your projects will also benefit from improved precision due to faster and simpler tiling of large cuts:* Just like the original Handibot, the Handibot Bridge is take-anywhere portable. The tool has wheels on each side-allowing it to be moved like a roller-board suitcase; across the shop or across the country. * The revolutionary new control software, FabMo, unleashes more freedom. This built-in digital fabrication and motion control system gives you the robust power of CNC technology while reducing the challenges of CNC:  You don't need to know how to use CAD and CAM software, you can simply use apps to make projects and run the tool to do simple jobs. If you want to work with the traditional CAD to CAM workflow, we provide access to two powerful software programs for creating CNC projects: (http://www.shopbottools.com/mProducts/software_vcarve.htm VCarvePro ShopBot Edition) and (http://www.shopbottools.com/mProducts/software_fusion360.htm Autodesk Fusion360).* FabMo also lets you create anywhere you want. Control and monitor the Handibot tool from any WiFi-enabled device: a Mac or PC computer, an Android or iOS phone, or any tablet. This is wireless CNC
