The MakerBot Digitizer Desktop 3D Scanner is a fast and easy way for anyone to create 3D models. 

“Bringing the MakerBot Digitizer Desktop 3D Scanner into the world has been a big goal of ours this year,” says 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.”

The MakerBot Digitizer takes a real-life object, scans it using a camera and two lasers, and creates a 3D digital file.  The scanner is optimized for and works seamlessly with MakerBot’s Replicator Desktop 3D Printers and MakerBot Thingiverse.

The scanner lists for $1,400. A MakerCare service plan is available for $150. For more information on the MakerBot Digitizer Desktop 3D Scanner visit makerbot.com/digitizer.
