To get a jump on your next professional design or to make a copy of a physical object, scanning the object is much easier and quicker than redesigning a CAD file. The MakerBot Digitizer Desktop 3D Scanner and software package will save time, scanning small objects in about twelve minutes.
The MakerBot Digitizer Desktop 3D Scanner is a compact 3D tool you can use to create digital design files of existing physical objects. The device uses a turntable that will allow users to scan objects that fit in the eight-inch diameter and eight inch tall scanning window. Operation is as easy as placing the object and using the included software, telling the device if you are scanning a light or dark object, setting the height by cropping and starting the scan. The digitizer uses dual-lasers that reflect the surface shape of the object to a central camera capture system building a point cloud and digital mesh while the object is rotated. The laser camera combination can capture surface detail and depth changes as small as half a millimeter and the final mesh model will have a resolution of two-hundred thousand triangles.
Scanned objects are stored in common STL file so they can be altered using preferred modeling software. The scanned object files can also be uploaded to the MakerBot’s Thingiverse for sharing with the world or given to friends to print their own copy of your object all without any CAD modeling experience. Pre-order the MakerBot Digitizer Desktop Scanner now for 1550 bucks, which includes their complete service plan for shipment and delivery in October.
