3D Scanner Buying Guide 2017

3D Scanner Buying Guide 2017

3D scanning is no simple trick. I know it; I designed a full-body 3D scanning system for iMakr’s New York store in 2014, and though it wasn’t my first foray into 3D printing, it led to many other opportunities. I detailed my system in an Instructable, which was very popular, I’m sure in large part […]
