Make: 3D Printing: The Essential Guide to 3D Printers

The 3D printing revolution is well upon us, with new machines appearing at an amazing rate. With the abundance of information and options out there, how are makers to choose the 3D printer that’s right for them? MAKE is here to help, with our Ultimate Guide to 3D Printing. With articles about techniques, freely available CAD packages, and comparisons of printers that are on the market, this book makes it easy to understand this complex and constantly-shifting topic.

Based on articles and projects from MAKE’s print and online publications, this book arms you with everything you need to know to understand the exciting but sometimes confusing world of 3D Printing.

3D Printing – Unabridged Guide

Complete, Unabridged Guide to 3D Printing. Get the information you need–fast! This comprehensive guide offers a thorough view of key knowledge and detailed insight. It’s all you need.

Here’s part of the content – you would like to know it all? Delve into this book today!….. : Some methods use melting or softening material to produce the layers, e. g. selective laser sintering (SLS) and fused deposition modeling (FDM), while others lay liquid materials that are cured with different technologies, i. e. stereolithography (SLA).

…The RepRap project aims to produce a free and open source software (FOSS) 3D printer, whose full specifications are released under the GNU General Public License, and which can print many of its own parts (the printed parts) to create more machines.

…Although fabrication has included methods that are essentially additive for centuries (such as joining plates, sheets, forgings, and rolled work via riveting, screwing, forge welding, or newer kinds of welding), it did not include the information technology component of model-based definition; and the province of machining (generating exact shapes with high precision) was generally a subtractive affair, from filing and turning through milling and grinding. For example, an encyclopedia article on threading today mentions both additive and subtractive methods as well as various integrations of the two, whereas an article on the same topic 20 years ago would not have contained the words additive and subtractive and would probably not have mentioned any additive techniques at all (let alone naming and differentiating them via use of those labels).

There is absolutely nothing that isn’t thoroughly covered in the book. It is straightforward, and does an excellent job of explaining all about 3D Printing in key topics and material. There is no reason to invest in any other materials to learn about 3D Printing. You’ll understand it all.
