Makerbot Digitizer Will Let Anyone Scan and Print Physical Items in 3D

Makerbot Digitizer Will Let Anyone Scan and Print Physical Items in 3D | 3D PRINTING DEVELOPMENTS | Scoop.it

"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."

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.”
