Quickly turn things in your world into 3D models you can modify, improve, share, and 3D print. It comes with MakerBot MakerWare for Digitizer, the easy to use, sophisticated software that works seamlessly with MakerBot Replicator Desktop 3D Printers, and lets you easily share your scans with the Thingiverse community.
With just two clicks, the MakerBot Digitizer Desktop 3D Scanner delivers clean, watertight 3D models in approximately 12 minutes. There’s no design, 3D modeling, or CAD expertise required to get started. The MakerBot Digitizer is intended for experimenters and visionaries who are ready to blaze a trail into 3D creation.
MakerBot MakerWare for Digitizer is optimized to work seamlessly with MakerBot Replicator Desktop 3D printers, but you get standard design files (STL) that can be used on other 3D printers as well.
Use the STL file to improve, shape, mold, twist, animate, and transform objects in a third-party 3D modeling program.
Send your 3D design files to friends, family, and colleagues, or easily upload them to MakerBot’s Thingiverse.com, the largest community for sharing 3D designs.
MakerBot MakerWare for Digitizer contains an algorithm that connects hundreds of thousands of points into a seamless digital mesh in just seconds. There’s no patching, stitching, or repairing required.
