Here is what the publisher says:
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 thats 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 MAKEs 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.
This book is a great hands on book for anyone who owns a desktop 3D printer, a RepRap or wants to build one. It covers components, their advantages and use; materials and how to use them as well as detailled descriptions of constructing your own Pruse or delta style printers, and troubleshooting them.
We highly recommend this book to our customers, even those with experience as it will formalise your existing knowledge and make you think about things you have not yet come across.
