5.0 out of 5 stars Best Hobbyist 3D Printing Book Available, August 25, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Practical 3D Printers: The Science and Art of 3D Printing (Technology in Action) (Paperback)
This is a "No Fluff" book full of first hand experience. I own the Makergear Mosaic M1 pictured on the front, and examples using the printer are throughout the book. I also own a Makerbot Thing-o-matic, and a RepRap Prusa which is also covered quite well in the book. There are a few things that aren't exactly right, but Cartesian printers and CNC in general can be exacting and complicated so there's no real faulting him for being a bit off.
He covers many of the new technology like Slic3r and Printrbot. I've read about half the book now and I'm quite pleased at the detail and currency of the book.
This is the best hobbyist 3D printing book available and will be a great place to start for many years.
