3D Systems releases a cheap and simple 3D scanner

South Carolina-based 3D Systems has released a $399 3D scanner called the Sense. The Sense is supposed to be much cheaper and easier to use than other 3D scanners on the market while still being able to perform as well.

We’ve seen more than a few startups cook up their own impressive 3D scanners — there’sMakerbot and its Digitizer, and dark horse Occipital with its mobile Structure sensor just to name a few — but one of the oldest and biggest names in 3D printers is clearly itching to get in the game too. South Carolina-based 3D Systems just recently outed a cheapish, consumer-friendly scanner called the Sense, and I swung by Engadget’s Expand show in New York this weekend to see the thing in action.
