The MakerBot 3D Digitizer is optimised for 3D Printing. In two clicks you can easily 3D scan objects to create watertight 3d models that are ready to 3D print. The process works seamlessly with MakerBot Replicator Desktop 3D Printers using the MakerBot Desktop software. Files can also be exported to be used and manipulated in your own choice of CAD software or other 3D Printers. You don't need any special design or 3D modeling skills to get started. The process takes minutes for complete.
Sharing files has been directly built into the MakerBot Digitzer experience. You can send 3D designs directly to colleges or easily upload them to Thinigivese.com, which is the largest community for sharing and downloading 3D designs.
Behind the two-click simplicity is a powerful and complex reconstruction process. 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, so you can skip straight to your creative process. We’ve worked hard to create software that saves you time.
When you 3D scan an object, there are times when you can not capture all feature from a single rotation. The MakerWare for Digitizer software allows objects can be scanned from multiple orientations. The software cleverly stitches and "merges" the model together form a complete watertight mesh, ready for 3D Printing.
