The Makerbot 3D Scanner kit is a MOUNT made fit for a pico projector, webcam, and an (optional) iphone/ipod.

for more details on the 3D Scanner, and all of the components needed to take three-dimensional scans, please visit the 3D Scanner wiki page:


NOTE: this is only the dxf for the lasercut parts. You still need various nuts & bolts, as well as the external hardware (projector, webcam)

For a compete kit with all nuts, bolts, inserts, etc... purchase the 3D Scanner through the Makerbot store:


Lasercut the attached dxf file using 5mm plywood!
(4.5-5.5mm should work)

You will need [most of] the following for a full kit:

20 x M3 Nuts
18 x M3x16mm Bolts
2 x M3x22mm Bolts
2 x Threaded Tee Insert (1/4-20)
1 x Hex Bolt (1/4-20 x 3/8\")
1 x Washer (1/4\" x .04\")
1 x Machine Screw (1/64 x 1/2\")

if you are using the pico 101, you do not need the 1/4-20 x 3/8\" bolt
if you are using the pico jr. you do not need the 1/64 x 1/2\" machine screw

Assembly Instructions are on the Cyclops wiki page

all parts can be purchased on mcmaster

No results.

They longer sell the kit :( could someone who already owns one make 3D model of it?

Well looks like the 3D Scanner wiki page is also dead

All I get it this

The request could not be satisfied.
Bad request.

I received one of these several months ago but just recently splurged for a pico-projector and HD webcam. I used a PK201 which is too big but you can make it fit with a few simple adjustments! I will create a derivative for these modifications shortly.

that would be awesome!! I actually never tried a pk201 - are you able to reach the buttons, etc??

I'm excited to see the derivative

No printable version yet?

This is kind of a general question, but the first time I've tried to open a MakerBot thing from DXF. When I import the file, no matter what units I select, the result doesn't make sense. The width of the upper left piece is about 102 units. So if I pick mm, it's 102mm (too small); if I pick cm, it's 102cm (way too large).

How are people here getting the files converted properly to work on their laser cutters? I'm using an Epilog laser at the TechShop.

Hey, so you were correct the first time; the units are in millimeters!

The 3D-Scanner was designed to be as small as possible, so the dimensions should be approximately: 12cm depth x 11.5cm height x 10cm width (120mmx115mmx100mm)

Hope this helps, lasercut away and start 3D scanning!

Hey man. Sorry for posting this (as I know this upload is pretty old), however I'm trying to get this guy to work, and I'm just not getting the dimensions to work out. I've checked using multiple programs, and every time they're off. Is it possible to re-upload a revised version? Very sorry for the request.

Thanks! I'll give it a stab again tonight. Do you know of any good DXF viewing tools that will show the correct dimensions, though? Ok, ok... google... :)

as soon as I posted that I thought of eDrawings. I'll have to give that a shot.

GPL license like the other MakerBot source files (currently listed as None), or something else?

I believe it is, yes

(sorry for the late reply!)
