Origin uses ShaperTape to understand its position on your workpiece. After you have added tape, which you can learn about in our taping section, you will need to scan your workpiece before adding designs and cutting.
When you first turn on your tool and are looking at a new tape array, Origin will be in Scan mode. You can also access this mode later by tapping the Scan button on the right side of the screen.
In some cases, Origin will automatically enable the 'New Scan' tool. If you don't see it selected and want to start a new scan, tap the 'New Scan' button in the upper left corner.
When ready, tap the Start Scan button to begin scanning. Origin's camera is in front of the tool underneath the handle. Move Origin around the workspace so that the camera sees all dominos.
Dominos will turn blue once Origin has registered them. If a domino is ripped, damaged, or can't be scanned, it will remain black.
Be sure to include the area where you plan to cut in your scan, even if that area does not have tape. Origin will add this area to your Workspace image, allowing you to align your designs to features on your material such as wood grain.
If you need to cancel the scan for any reason, you can tap the red button on the left handle.
When you have completed your scan, tap the green button. This will finish your scan and automatically save your Workspace. After your Workspace is built, you will be taken to Design mode to add designs.
