Designed in collaboration with:



  • Use with a template guide system to create staggered parallel line geometry on a work piece to accent the design

  • Quickly sketch a grid system on a part with a pencil to allow for accurate layout work

  • The Smart Ruler XL allows for quickly adjusting the alignment rail to create angled geometry

  • Use the Template Guide System with a router to machine grooves into a work piece with various router bit profiles and various size router bushings. These bushings and bits can be used WITH OR WITHOUT the Smart Ruler & Smart Ruler XL. Simply stick a single template to a work piece and use the edge of the template as a guide to cut a groove. The included router bits are used for adding accent cuts or for material compensation (Example: vinyl to carpet transitions)

Smart Roller


Ditch that screen roller for a purpose built tool. The CP-Smart Roller is designed in collaboration with industry veteran Christerfer Pate to perfect the application of upholstery materials into grooved geometry.

Tuck vinyl and upholstery materials like a pro! This device allows you to push material perfectly into both tight and wide slots machined with a router. Using this tool allows you to exert extra force when wrapping a part with upholstery materials. This is key to getting great adhesion between the upholstery material and the substrate.
