Reverse Engineer in 3D, Part 1

One of our esteemed volunteers set us up with a great challenge to test our Makerbot Digitizer (3D scanner). Sometimes we have good enough results from the scanner to print a duplicate, but we’re still looking for people who’d like to spend some time researching the ins and outs of getting the best scan. 20180109_171146We tried a washable paint on this cabinet guide and that technique added a lot of definition to the scan. Anyway, we ended up importing our scan result into @TinkerCAD and modeling to match the original part. If you can’t tell the real one from the 3D printed one, then come in or call in and ask about 3D printing, or spend a moment exploring how it works @Makerbot https://www.makerbot.com/learn/.

I’ll follow up here when we find out whether the part fit!
