Desktop 3D Scanner


Main library has a MakerBot Digitizer available for use and requires a laptop with MakerWare. The digitizer uses triangulation algorithms to calculate and scan an object. The object is then converted into .stl or .obj file which will require further smoothing in a CAD program before the file can be printed on our Ultimakers. We also recommend scanning your object multiple times from different angles to achieve better results. Watch the video below to learn more about getting started with the Digitizer!
