The MakerBot Digitizer Desktop 3D Scanner is a fast and easy way for anyone to create 3D models. The only constraints to start using it seem to have $1400 to spend and the ambition to scan something that would fit within the Digitizer’s 8″ diameter plate…

“Bringing the MakerBot Digitizer Desktop 3D Scanner into the world has been a big goal of ours this year,” stated MakerBot CEO Bre Pettis. “We are really excited about the MakerBot Digitizer. This is another innovative product for visionaries, early adopters, experimenters, educators, creative hobbyists,3D sculptors, organic modelers, designers, and architects who want to be the first to become an expert in Desktop 3D Scanning.”

Quickly turn anything around you into 3D models that you can modify, improve, share, and 3D print.

So how it works exactly? Well, it’s quite simple. Literally, to start to digitize, you just have to connect the Digitizer to a laptop or computer and it is ready to use. The device takes a real-life object, scans it using a camera and two lasers, and creates a 3D digital file all by its own. You don’t need to have any skills for design neither 3D software experience. With no surprise, this 3D Scanner is optimized for and works seamlessly with MakerBot’s Replicator Desktop 3D Printers and MakerBot Thingiverse.
