Un maker, una persona che partendo da un'idea realizza autonomamente il proprio progetto, dovrebbe avere competenze, o almeno potrebbe essere enormemente aiutato all'interno del suo percorso da tecnologie quali la stampa 3D, le frese e i pantografi computerizzati, l'elettronica di Arduino e Raspberry Pi, etc...Questo libro affronta a grandi linee questi aspetti e costituisce un'iniziale base di partenza per sapersi poi orientare. Consigliato, ma come detto giusto per iniziare.
Likewise, it seemed like at least half the book reads like a manual on workflow at a factory... complete with some of the corporate-speak those of us who have worked in manufacturing get really tired of hearing.
Honestly, I was looking for a book that gave detailed information on processes for making things - How to work with plastics, wood, soft metals... casting plastic and non-ferrous metals, how to make something look nice and professional with good control panels, layouts, decals or silk screening, etc. I've been trying to find this information in some of these "Maker's" books... but it seems 99% of them just want to talk about workflow and project management like some sort of new-management meeting retreat, rather than actually teaching anybody how to actually "make" anything.
Very disappointed. I'm sure it will help some people out there, but it's nothing like I expected it to be and teaches me very little of actual practical use.
