I found that this book would be helpful to anybody who is either interested in learning about the basic concepts behind 3d printing, or for somebody who is considering purchasing a machine, as some of the very basic common machine principles are explained in section 2.

The book is therefore ideal for a beginner to the subject, but is unlikely to teach an experienced user anything new as it does not deliver enough detail on many of the subjects contained.

This is a good solid introduction into 3D printing! 29 Jan. 2014
By kewiiq2 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I had the pleasure of attending a lecture by the authors. At first I was very skeptical about the quality of information and amount of facts it would relay. I was disappointed with the book to be honest. But I also happen to be in the trenches of the 3D printing startup world. I run a consulting group that uses 3D CADs and 3D printers to create products for our clients.

All of the issues that my team and I have fixed or ran into, we solved with lots of hours of tinkering and research. This book is a cheap sheet, that will bring pretty much anybody up to speed with working with low end FFF or FDM machines. Gives your a basic working knowledge of the industry and its applications.

This book should be considered a gateway book to a more complex and lingo filled explanations/examples that other 3D books are filled with.

Like I mentioned above, I personally was disappointed with the book but my new team members and non-technical co-founders nearly worship it. So I have to appreciated it for the fact that it allows my team and I to communicate more effectively, since I don't have to dumb down my tech talk to be understood.

Just Interested, Builder, or Buyer, a "Must Read" Book! 1 Feb. 2014
By Stephen J Farling - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A great easy read book, that explains the workings of 3D Printers.
I found the book very informative of all aspects of the different printer types and components.
I couldn't put it down till I finished it!
I'm now ready to build my own.
very informative 6 July 2014

It presents the basics of 3d printing and covers many aspects that are crucial to choose the printer you should by. However, I think it is a little thin in thing you can make with each different kind of printer and material available.

Great overview of 3D printing in general. A high-level text, more of an essay than a book. Shorter than expected, but valuable non the less.
plain overview of current status of technique / market. 13 Nov. 2013

plain overview of current status of technique / market. Of course 6 months from now it will be outdated. Until then i recommend as a starter...
