This week’s selection is “3D Printing Step by Step” by Carmelito Andrade.
This book is another of many that attempt to help those new to the world of 3D printing. Those readers familiar with 3D printing won’t need this book, but they are not the target audience for this material.
The truth is that for non-techies, the prospect of setting up and operating one’s own 3D printer is daunting. Many things can go wrong, and they won’t know how to fix them. Even starting basic 3D print operations can be confusing, as people have to learn the basic digital manufacturing workflow.
It’s easy once you know these things, but difficult until you do.
Some folks might have the benefit of a techie nearby that’s familiar with 3D printing that can guide them through the challenging initial stages. But if there isn’t that someone available, then what do you do?
The answer is a book like “3d Printing Step by Step”, which, as the title suggests, takes you step by step through the process of setting up and operating a basic desktop 3D printer.
If you’re interested in getting into 3D printing, but don’t have someone handy to help you through it, consider purchasing this book, which contains the necessary information. It’s presented in an easy-to-read manner, and includes discussions of history, concepts, materials, workflow and even how to design your own objects with the free Tinkercad system.
