Interesting book, as someone said you seems to be reading Popular Mechanics or Popular Science articles, but you find there all the essential to understand better the future of 3D Printing, not only by plastics or metals printing but also for Food Printing and applications in Medicine. Those looking for more details in deep about the 3D Printing processes forget it, this is not for you. Recommended.
This is a must read for anyone needing more than a surface scan of the 3D printing sector. The emerging issues in this sector are explained, including intellectual property rights, the need for a new approach to the design process itself including the need for innovative design software (and mention of a recommended new design file format). A balanced look at the actual carbon footprint of the 3D printing sector is also included. The book is full of photographs of 3D printed products and specimens that will fascinate all types of readers.
If you know nothing about the emerging world of 3D printing, buy and read this book. It gives the reader the terminology and shares the excitement of this transformative technology. Unfortunately, some of the text is already outdated. Even so, I recommend this book as one of the best places to get introduced to the concepts.
Shares some of the same info as the Chris Anderson book, Makers. Even with that, it is good to have this book as a reference. Note that the 3D world is changing every week, so I'm sure the author is already working on a new edition of this book.
I found it very interesting, enjoyed the fact that it's taking place right now. To find out that we are using some of the item done with 3D printing made me think to start looking at the possibility's.
