Placement of the MakerBot Digitizer

    Finding the right location for your MakerBot Digitizer is important. Follow these guidelines to ensure the best quality scans.

    • Set up your MakerBot Digitizer in an indoor area with ample incandescent or fluorescent light. Avoid natural light sources.
    • Avoid pointing the MakerBot Digitizer’s camera and lasers toward light sources. Avoid placing the MakerBot Digitizer directly below a light source.
    • Place your MakerBot Digitizer on a flat, stable work surface and make sure no part of the MakerBot Digitizer extends over the surface edge. If it is not in a stable position, the MakerBot Digitizer could fall, damaging itself and causing injury to the user.
    • Make sure to set up your MakerBot Digitizer at least one foot away from the nearest wall.
