The iPad mountable iSense 3D Scanner is a functional device that can be greatly enhanced by third-party 3D printing applications. With a scan volume that ranges between 8″ and 118 inches, DIYers can scan, crop, edit, enhance and export their scanned objects using the iSense companion app. But if you’re looking for a 0.1mm high-resolution scanner with geometric precision, this is not the device for you. As the saying goes, “you get what you pay for it.”
As a 3D printer, the Da Vinci Pro is rather impressive for its mid-range price point. With a max build size of 7.8 x 7.8 x 7.8 inches and an autoloading filament mechanism, XYZ’s printer is “perfect for designers, engineers, architects, and anyone looking for a user-friendly 3D printer that can print objects at a high volume, professional degree.”
Capable of printing items up to 125 x 125 x 125 mm in size at a resolution of 50-300 microns, the Snapmaker All-Metal 3-in-1 Printer uses Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) technology for its design creations. But this is not just an amazingly affordable 3D printer. The Snapmaker uses detachable modules to convert between a 3D printer, a CNC Carver, and a laser engraver.
Considered the “world’s first professional-grade 3D printing pen,” 3Doodler wants to entice creative professionals (architects, engineers, designers, artists, etc.) to turn their vision into reality using their revolutionary prototyping and tactile design tool.
