3d Scanning and Printing

[dropcap]W[/dropcap]ell today I joined the ranks of the new emerging community of 3ders. I picked up a NextEngine 3d scanner hd and multidrive set for about half what it goes for new. My plan is to scan the hell out of everything Atari, then move on to anything else that strikes my fancy. I might even rent out time on the unit for others. So if you are interested, drop me a line.

In the next few days I also plan to purchase a 3d printer. Right now I am focused on the FlashForge 3d Creator Pro. It seems to have the right combination of features and flexibility that I am looking for. Hopefully with scans from the NextEngine I can create in ABS plastic some of the carts and parts that the Atari community is pinning for. It won’t be mass production on the scale of thousands, but it might be affordable on the scale of tens and a hundred or so.
