The 3D scanning craze is larger then ever! As one of the major innovations of the past decade, 3D scanning has countless uses; many of which are still being discovered. Contrary to popular belief, 3D scanning does not require professional assistance and can in fact be used from your own home.
MakerBot’s Digitizer now makes it possible to create 3D models in a fraction of the time with no prior experience required. What does it exactly do?
Here’s the breakdown according to MakerBot’s creators:
– Digitally captures and preserves 3D mementos and creations.
– Explores the boundaries of 3D scanning and shares adventures with enthusiasts of all ages.
– Participates in educational and entertaining 3D scanning projects and challenges.
– Can create clean 3D models in just two clicks.
