"Sort of like a copy/paste for real-world objects, the Digitizer works using two lasers and a webcam. The webcam sees where the lasers are shining off of an item, and wraps all those points up into a plan for a 3D model that can then be printed."
Daniel Booth's insight:
3D printers are great but what if you would like to recreate something you already have? Makerbot brings the Digitizer that is a scanner of objects then then can be sent to a printer
“..brought to our attention, Makerbot and Adafruit really do make an awesome duo. Think about it: one makes 3D printers, the other sells Arduino boards and pretty much everything else a tinkerer could possibly want.. just heard they've started selling a limited edition version of Makerbot's Replicator 2 3D printer, which will come bundled with three DIY kits you'd normally buy on a site like Adafruit. These include the Raspberry Pi, which you all know very well, along with the Timesquare DIY Watch Kit and MintyBoost, the open-source hardware charger.”
"..is offering that experience starting next week (March 23 at 1 p.m.). For $30, inquiring minds will be able to design a simple beer bottle opener that includes their initials and watch the 3D manufacturing process while enjoying a beverage and some light snacks."
Daniel Booth's insight:
Next time you go to your friend’s house for a few drinks imagine bringing out a personalised bottle opener that you can actually say 'yeah, i made this', well that is possible.
Starting March 23 Denver 3D Printing Store is offering this opportunity with 2 MakerBot Replicator 2s and a Stratasys uPrint.
