The MakerBot Digitizer Desktop 3D Scanner is a quick and easy way to turn different things into 3D designs, you can share and print.
Instead of replacing a small broken part, you can scan it with MakerBot, generate a 3D model in your computer and then print it on the 3D printer.
Bre Pettis CEO of MakerBot, said:
“We are super excited to announce at SXSW Interactive that we are developing the MakerBot Digitizer Desktop 3D Scanner. It’s a natural progression for us to create a product that makes 3D printing even easier. With the MakerBot Digitizer Desktop 3D Scanner, now everyone will be able to scan a physical item, digitize it, and print it in 3D – with little or no design experience.”
