Practical 3D Printers Book Excerpt:

Desktop or DIY 3D printers are devices you can either buy preassembled as a kit, or build from a collection of parts to design and print physical objects including replacement household parts, custom toys, and even art, science, or engineering projects. Maybe you have one, or maybe you're thinking about buying or building one. Practical 3D Printers takes you beyond how to build a 3D printer, to calibrating, customizing, and creating amazing models, including 3D printed text, a warship model, a robot platform, windup toys, and arcade-inspired alien invaders. You'll learn about the different types of personal 3D printers and how they work; from the MakerBot to the RepRap printers like the Huxley and Mendel, as well as the whiteAnt CNC featured in the Apress book Printing in Plastic. You'll discover how easy it is to find and design 3D models using web-based 3D modeling, and even how to create a 3D model from a 2D image. After learning the basics, this book will walk you through building multi-part models with a steampunk warship project, working with meshes to build your own action heroes, and creating an autonomous robot chassis. Finally, you'll find even more bonus projects to build, including wind-up walkers, faceted vases for the home, and a handful of useful upgrades to modify and improve your 3D printer.

A Beginner s Guide to 3D Printing Book Excerpt:

In recent years, 3D printers have revolutionized the worlds of manufacturing, design, and art. As the price of printers drop and their availability increases, more people will have access to these remarkable machines. A Beginner's Guide to 3D Printing is written for those who would like to experiment with 3D design and manufacturing, but have little or no technical experience with the standard software. Professional engineer Mike Rigsby leads readers step-by-step through fifteen simple toy projects, each illustrated with screen caps of Autodesk 123D Design, the most common free 3D software available. The projects are later described using Sketchup, another free popular software package. The toy projects in A Beginner's Guide to 3D Printing start simple-a domino, nothing more than an extruded rectangle, a rectangular block-that will take longer to print than design. But soon the reader will be creating jewel boxes with lids, a baking-powder submarine, interchangeable panels for a design-it-yourself dollhouse, a simple train with expandable track, a multipiece airplane, a working paddleboat, and a rubber band-powered car. Finally, readers will design, print, and assemble a Little Clicker, a noise-making push toy with froggy eyes. Once trained in the basics of CAD design, readers will be able to embark on even more elaborate designs of their own creation. Mike Rigsby is a professional electrical engineer and author of Doable Renewables, Amazing Rubber Band Cars and Haywired. He has written for Popular Science, Robotics Age, Modern Electronics, Circuit Cellar, Byte, and other magazines.
