The MakerBot Digitizer Can Now Be Pre-Ordered
MakerBot is now letting people buy the Digitizer desktop 3D scanner for $1,400. The Digitizer will let you scan all sorts of products and send the 3D files for printing or sharing.
When you place the object on the turntable, a pair of lasers will scan the surface geometry and will turn that cloud of data points into a 3D model. The process takes around 12 minutes.
The max. weight that the turntable can support is about 6.5 lbs.
