This week’s selection is “3D Printing Basics for Entertainment Design” by Anne E. McMills.

There are plenty of books that introduce 3D printers, but relatively few provide an introduction that’s designed for a specific application audience.

That’s what this book is: it’s an introduction to desktop 3D printing for those in the entertainment industry. Example applications might include those building artistic or functional items for theme parks, theater, TV, motion pictures, museums, store displays and much more.

The book does explain the basics, including selecting a printer and explaining the basic workflows, but then digs into the specific applications one might apply this technology towards in the entertainment industry.

The application areas covered include:

  • Scenic applications
  • Costume applications
  • Character design and fabrication
  • Exhibits
  • Other, such as lighting, sound, projection, or special effects

For someone in the entertainment industry doing one of the above applications or something similar, this book could be of interest. It’s always best to receive information from someone familiar with your area of interest, and that’s exactly what this book attempts to do.
