  1. 3D printing explained well I gave this book 5 stars because I enjoyed reading it. For me it explained all the aspects of 3D printing in one place which allowed me to become familiar with the techniques, language, engineering and applications of 3D printing in a weekend. After reading this book I am confident about getting into and purchasing a 3D printer.My background is I am handy and computer literate. For me the information was straight forward and easy to comprehend. After reading this I think it will be…

  2. Just Finished! I just finished building my own 3D Printer from a kit when this book finally arrived at my door. I read it in about 3 days, highlighting all the important (or at least, important areas to me).This book helped me tremendously with calibrating my bed and extruder. Made Slic3r and Pronterface much more easy to understand and gave great tips on settings for different types of prints.Seriously, a great book to have in your 3D printing collection.A side note, this…
