MakerBot unveils ‘Digitizer’ 3D scanner (Wired UK)
At the SxSW conference in Austin, Texas, 3D printer manufacturer MakerBot  has announced a 3D scanner called the “Digitizer”.
The desktop-sized device uses cameras and lasers to scan objects and create digital files that can then be used to replicate the object exactly using one of MakerBot’s digital printers.
MakerBot founder Bre Pettis said: “The MakerBot Digitizer is an innovative new way to take a physical object, scan it, and create a digital file — without any design, CAD software or 3D modelling experience at all — and then print the item again and again on a MakerBot Replicator 2 or 2X Desktop 3D Printer.”
