Digitizer Update 9 | Scan And Scale


The MakerBot Digitizer Desktop 3D Scanner gives you the power to unleash the creative potential of the things you already own.

Did your child create a stencil in art class? Customize an iPhone case with her design. Did you just win the biggest award in your field? No need to stick to just one trophy: print that baby out in every color of filament we make. Are you an interior designer trying to replicate a favorite vintage piece? Scan it in and print as many as you’d like. Got a treasured figurine from grandma? Scan it, scale down, and turn it into a pair of earrings, like we did with our thrift store cat this week.

Those are the kind of possibilities that get us really excited about the Digitizer, especially when combined with the power of a desktop 3D printer like the MakerBot Replicator 2 Desktop 3D Printer.
