With all the attention on 3D printing, I started wondering if anyone had created a 3D scanner. Of course, I knew the answer had to be yes, so I went looking. That’s how I found NextEngine and their 3D Scanner and scanning software. Jay Leno’s Garage uses it and did a show on it not long ago.
The company introduced me to the fine folks at Edmonds Community College (north of Seattle) that have a terrific Materials Science program.
