The construction of augmented object´s prototypes is a difficult process because most of the time these prototypes contain several sensors embedded in real life objects. In this paper, we present our experience using 3D technologies (scanning and printing) to generate prototypes of augmented objects which allow an early evaluation of them. Three different objects with embedded sensing and actuating capabilities were designed and developed. We discuss several pros and cons of applying this technology when developing augmented objects. Our results show that the use of 3D technologies enhances the quality of the final prototypes and allows a better concept validation and evaluation.
