A good concise guide to 3D printing. Covers processes, techniques, models, parts, and settings. Will be using it as a guide to build and run my own 3D printer. Highly recommend.

Best Hobbyist 3D Printing Book Available 25 Aug 2012
By CharlesBabbage - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
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.

Very poor quality images 9 Dec 2012
By John - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
For the price of this book the graphics look like they were printed on a 1980 dot-matrix printer. I have seen the .PDF version of this book and the graphics are clear and in color. The printed version is of the lowest quality however.

Essential if you are building a RepRap 26 April 2013
By C. Krause - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I was waiting for Josef Prusa`s book to come out when I decided to buy this on Kindle. I was six months into my first build of a Mendel Prusa V2 finding it difficult to get a clear step-by-step guide all in one place. The RepRap community and Wiki are great, but not so concise. When I first started reading this book, I wasn't that impressed. As I progressed on my build I found myself referring to it more and finally relying on it. While the author tries to be circumspect this is clearly aimed at the RepRap Mendel. This is a good thing, as it doesn't try to be a generic and meaningless overview. There are an incredible number of resources, and just about every link is relevant and even exciting.The author takes you from basic hardware, firmware in enough specific detail to really be useful for for the most popular electronics. He introduces the best open source software tools and model sources and walks you through a very practical project. Lots of tips, like using a wet method to mount Kaptan tape on the heated bed, which is almost impossible to do any other way. I found it worth the price now that I'm actually extending plastic .

Great for the first time 3D printer buyer. It explains the hardware and software tool chain is such a way that you have all the basic knowledge necessary to purchase a printer and start churning out prints. A must have!

I'll second the good reviews 6 Feb 2013
By R. Hulslander - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Yup this was a good book.

I am new to 3D printing so just trying to learn the basics so I learned a lot.

I am also trying to learn 3D CAD so the instructions in using OpenSCAD were a real eye opener.
