Brooklyn based 3D printer guru’s MakerBot will be shipping their Digitizer in October. The MakerBot Digitizer takes a 3D object, scans is and creates a 3 dimensional design file. These design files can then be used with a 3D printer to make a physical clone of the original object.
MakerBot has a good consumer following with hobbyists and institutions for education. At the moment, any design files would normally obtained from sites such as Thingiverse where users could find all sorts of objects from balloons to crystals.
