3D Printing For Dummies is an easy reference for anyone new to the process of taking a digital file and turning it into an object in the real world. (Pretty amazing stuff, right?) It’s also a handy guide for more experienced users looking to learn the latest and greatest in additive manufacturing. Updated for the latest generation of machines and materials, this book walks you through creating models and printing 3D objects. You’ll get the scoop on the impact of these versatile machines in production and manufacturing, reuse and recycling, intellectual property design controls, and more. It’s an exciting time to get into 3D printing, and this friendly Dummies guide is here to help you do it.
3D Printing For Dummies, 3rd Edition, was written with the average reader in mind. It’s a survey of the existing capabilities of additive manufacturing for both private and commercial purposes and a consideration of the possibilities of its future.
In this book, I review many current additive manufacturing technologies. Some are early uses of a technology or process with numerous limitations and caveats regarding their use. I also explore what types of desktop machines are available to buy and use straight away while also looking at those kits that require some assembly on the user’s part. I dive into the software you will need (often as freely available open-source downloads) and then look at the tips and tricks needed to design for the 3D-printing process. This book won’t make you an expert in all aspects of 3D printing, but it will give you a good overall starting point for learning the art of 3D printing and an opportunity to explore additive manufacturing systems. I hope that you’ll be excited by the amazing potential of 3D printers — excited enough to buy your own desktop machine and learn how to design and make useful, practical, and fun objects for you to use and share.
Every time this book has been updated, it’s always wonderful to see many of the things discussed as early concept ideas and research turned into realities, now being used in everyday life. 3D printing is truly changing the way we design and make products as individuals and extensively in wider world industries. It’s a technology that’s already touched your life even if you haven’t realized it yet.
