This book hits the middle ground just right. It focuses on pragmatic advice for designing useful parts that are strong enough to work in real-world applications. Topics such as infill, part orientation, overhangs and support, and other design considerations specific to FFM (fused filament manufacturing) are covered in great detail. While it's technical stuff, Smyth backs up his explanations with examples and diagrams rather than equations--this book is very much focused on pragmatism over theory.
Some other reviewers fuss about the book being short. That's a plus in my opinion; I don't want to read a 400 page book when a 200 page book will do. This book is compact but, as far as useful information content is concerned, it hits way above its weight. If only other writers valued their reader's time so much.
In sum, if you're looking to move past desk toys and use 3D printing for real stuff, this is the book for you.
Easy and quick read, with full illustrations.
