3D Printing PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

3D Printing free pdf This lush, 4-color book uses a straightforward, photo and screenshot-rich design to teach the reader everything he/she needs to know about 3D printing technology. 3D printing can be intimidating to many people. The machines are getting simpler, but there's still a software and hardware component that can be overwhelming to people not familiar with them. 3D printing doesn't have to be difficult to understand or use - and this book will provide super-simple explanations and instructions that other books on the subject are missing. New 3DP owners don't want to spend a lot of time reading about how the technology works. This book touches on that, but gets right to the heart of the matter and shows readers how 3D printing isn't sci-fi and it isn't only for the geeks. It tackles and simplifies topics such as CAD, XYZ coordinate system, and STL files, and teaches readers how to brainstorm a 3D object, how to design it with AutoCAD software, and ultimately how to print it on a printer the reader built him or herself! This book provides sidebars with useful websites that outline cool and interesting projects/devices. This book uses as little non-technical jargon as possible, and focuses on easy-to-understand explanations for topics such as XYZ coordinates, CAD (Computer Aided Design), and STL files. Many people still believe that 3D printing is the province of the uber nerdy, but we're here to show that readers young and old will understand just how easy it is to build a 3D printer, connect it to a computer, design a 3D object with simple (and free) software, and then print that object in plastic. Purchasers of the book will also receive access to a series of short streaming web videos that demonstrate many of the software techniques used in the book as well as some videos of the 3D printer assembly and use.
