I recently saw a 3D printing exhibition at London's Science Museum and knew I had to learn more about the topic. I had no idea until reading Mr Winnan's information-packed book quite what the possibilities and implications were. The information is presented clearly with many helpful illustrations, there is enough background - history and technology - without getting bogged down, everything in easy-to-digest sections and chapters. It has everything you could possibly need to know to get started in this exciting area. For what might seem to be a complex technological topic this book is perfectly pitched at beginners. Beginners that, I think, will soon be fully fledged enthusiasts, thanks to Mr Winnan's excellent book!

Great personal experiments! 24 Jan 2014
By Steven M - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I have found a bunch of books on 3D printing to be very boring and mostly just researched material. I really found myself actually enjoying this book as it was written from personal experiences. Great photos throughout of actual experiments helped to totally understand what you were reading. This author took time to explain simple enough that a novice can understand yet an experienced person doesn't get bored. Thumbs up!

3D printing is taking off 23 Jan 2014
By Moore Ronson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The author, through the book’s title, rightly pointed out that 3D printing is the next technology goldrush. Chris Anderson, the author and entrepreneur who insightfully forecasted the emergence of the long tail and freemium business models, has predicted that 3D printing has given rise to the next industrial revolution. It is indeed a hot topic in the technology sector. More and more enterprises and individuals have bet on 3D printing taking off.

This book shed light on both the business and technological aspects. It tells you what are the highly demanded products, how to outsource and expand your business. It also discusses in detail different types of 3D printing machines, software platform and what basic equipment you’ve got to have to start a business. The author shared lots of his personal experiences with the printing machines. These are interesting stories to read. There is a balance between plain technical details and readability. I don’t think it is a “business in a box” type of guide that enables you to start the printing business tomorrow, but you can expect to read some in-depth details that save you time on doing the research all by yourself.

If you want to catch up with the 3D printing trend, this is a book to include in your reading list.

If 3D printing interests you, buy this book!! 21 Jan 2014
By Brian - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
My first experience with 3D printing was almost 20 years ago when my dad showed me a small form he made on this huge machine from a CAD drawing. The technology was new, but I was so intrigued! Fast forward to 2013 and I finally bought my own 3D printer from a Kickstarter campaign.

I am so glad I found this book. It an excellent read filled with both great ideas to help monetize your new 3D printer and also detailed information about advancements in the technology that give you a nice idea of what to expect over the next few years of this exciting technology. I would highly recommend this book to 3D printing enthusiasts or just anyone who is interested in discovering an alternative revenue stream that doesn't require a huge investment. A++

Very Comprehensive 1 Feb 2014
By S J - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Winnan is clearly very passionate about 3D printing, and with good reason - the possibilities of 3D printing are endless!
'Adventures in 3D Printing' is a comprehensive guide to 3D printing, coming from a tech background I am quite familiar with these printers myself, but I learnt A LOT while reading too. Suitable for beginners or those already familiar with 3D printing.

Recommend reading.
