The Next Engine 3D Scanner would enhance and promote the use of the Makerbot Replicator 3D Printer that has recently been purchased for use by students and faculty who wish to explore this innovative technology and incorporate it into the curriculum. The scanner increases the 3D printer’s usefulness by allowing existing objects to be scanned and printed, rather than just designed from scratch. The MultiDrive Scanning Platform further automates and increases ease of use of the process. The upgraded software increases the speed and ease of the scanning process. With creator’s consent, object plans can then be added to the institutional repository, Digital Commons@Brockport.
