He tries explaining a bit of technology but he is clearly not cut out for that, explaining details is all a bit pedestrian for him. He has a go at explaining, some what unconvincingly, how you can make money using a 3d printer to print various kinds of miniature and models. He does a bit of reviewing of various 3d printers, which might be useful if we were still in the year 2013. He describes some of the projects he is working on using his 3d printer. I understand why he might be interested in these, perhaps he has/ will make a few sales through the web but sadly none of them interested me. He then sets off on a web odyssey touring his favourite sites and giving us a gloss.
This is a stream of consciousness book written by an author who hops from topic to topic rarely settling on anything for more than a couple of paragraphs. I am imagining him with a browser and a word processor open on his laptop as he flits from website to website summarising the shinier bits of gee-whizzery upon which his magpie eye alights.Read more ›

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.
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++
Although Makerbot in its new corporate guise comes in for a fair bit of criticism, banning the book outright seem s to be a bit of an over reaction and is likely to only succeed in making the book more popular. While the author criticizes the company's move away from the open source ethos and questions whether a 3D printing manufacturer owning a 3D file repository is a conflict of interests, the sheer amount of information that he includes regarding his own Makerbot experiments is bound to drive 3D printer sales ever upward.
It was great to see a book that included real examples of what I could be printing to make a printer pay for itself. Not many other books in this field are so clear cut in this area. I have not yet got around to buying a printer, but when I do I will certainly be exploring some of the fascinating income streams that are explored here. The book even inspired me to come up with a few ideas of my own.
The other thing that surprised me about this book is its prescience. A lot of the predictions are already starting to come true. From the adoption of the new AMF format to Local Motors printing the first 3D printed car, this guy must have printed a crystal ball to be able to see so clearly what impacts this technology is having. Cannot wait to see if the rest of his predictions start coming true.
