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.

Fabricated Book Excerpt:

Fabricated tells the story of 3D printers, humblemanufacturing machines that are bursting out of the factory andinto schools, kitchens, hospitals, even onto the fashion catwalk.Fabricated describes our emerging world of printableproducts, where people design and 3D print their own creations aseasily as they edit an online document. A 3D printer transforms digital information into a physicalobject by carrying out instructions from an electronic design file,or 'blueprint.' Guided by a design file, a 3D printer lays downlayer after layer of a raw material to 'print' out an object.That's not the whole story, however. The magic happens when youplug a 3D printer into today’s mind-boggling digitaltechnologies. Add to that the Internet, tiny, low cost electroniccircuitry, radical advances in materials science and biotech andvoila! The result is an explosion of technological and socialinnovation. Fabricated takes the reader onto a rich and fulfillingjourney that explores how 3D printing is poised to impact nearlyevery part of our lives. Aimed at people who enjoy books on business strategy, popularscience and novel technology, Fabricated will providereaders with practical and imaginative insights to the question'how will this technology change my life?' Based on hundreds ofhours of research and dozens of interviews with experts from abroad range of industries, Fabricated offers readers aninformative, engaging and fast-paced introduction to 3D printingnow and in the future.

Practical 3D Echocardiography Book Excerpt:

This extensive clinically focused book is a detailed practical 3D echocardiography imaging reference that addresses the concerns and needs of both the novice and experienced 3D echocardiographer. Chapters have been written in a highly instructive and practical disease- and problem-oriented approach supported by illustrative high-quality images (and corresponding 3D echo video clips where applicable) that demonstrate the incremental value of 3D echocardiography over 2D echocardiography in practice. Practical 3D Echocardiography is an intuitive guide to 3D imaging – what to look for, how to look for it, the best and special views, caveats and pitfalls when applicable, and clinical pearls and pointers – that can be used in daily practice. It is therefore of immense value to any practicing or trainee echocardiographer, cardiologist and internist.
