MakerBot Digitizer 3D Desktop Scanner
New low-price scanner for 3D modeling and printing.

Article By Steven R. Rochlin


  Come enter the modern world of digital scanning for only $1400 with the upcoming MakerBot's Digitzer 3D scanner! With just two clicks, the MakerBot Digitizer Desktop 3D Scanner's simple yet sophisticated software creates clean, watertight 3D models that are ready to 3D print. They have optimized the whole process to work seamlessly with the compoany's Replicator Desktop 3D Printers, yet you get standard design files that may be used on the 3D printer of your choice. MakerBot makes it easy and you do not need a Master's degree in engineering or know fluid dynamics. MakerBot makes it so easy and everything happens in just minutes.

To quote the company, "See things differently. When you scan an object, you give it a brand new life in the digital world. The MakerBot Digitizer Desktop 3D Scanner outputs standard 3D file formats so that you can improve, shape, mold, twist, animate, and transform objects in a third-party 3D modeling program. The file you get from your scan is a great starting point for something new." 

Of course you can scale scanned objects down and multiply them to create charms or game pieces. It only takes seconds with the included free software MakerBot MakerWare. As 3D printing enthusiasts enjoy sharing their designs, they have built this feature directly into the MakerBot Digitizer. Simply send your 3D design files to friends, family, and colleagues, or easily upload them Thingiverse.com, the largest community for sharing 3D designs.

Welcome to the future with 3D scanning and printing at relatively low pricing plus ease of use for those just learning about the possibilities in employing this new technology.
