MakerBot Digitizer

The Digitizer uses a laser and turntable to gather shape data from the surface of objects over a 360 degree rotation. 3D-Scanning is a bit of an art and takes some time and practice to get decent results. Best used for capturing complex geometry which cannot be modeled in software easily.
