Makerbot's new 3-D scanner, called the Digitizer, is set to go on sale this week and could be a huge story for the consumer 3-D printing space. In this video, Motley Fool consumer goods analyst Blake Bos tells investors how, depending on the price point, this scanner could make 3-D scanning accessible to a whole new segment of consumers, which would then make consumer 3-D printing far more accessible, too. Blake also tells us that parent company Stratasys (NASDAQ:SSYS), which recently acquired Makerbot, definitely stands to benefit as a result.
