- The maximum effective resolution is about 2mm. This means you won’t be able to scan small, finely detailed items like some jewelry.
- Scanned items must fit on the platform and be able to rotate freely. Anything larger cannot be scanned.
- Reflective or transparent objects can be problematic. This issue occurs even on high-end laser-using scanners, so we’re not surprised MakerBot has the same issue.
- Aside from the preparation of the scan itself, you’ll have to use other software to modify the scan. For example, if you wish to put a base on the figurine scan, you need to use a 3D modeling tool.
