With the growing availability of 3D printers, this remarkable technology is coming to the masses.

3D Printing For Dummies: get started printing 3D objects

Starting with an overview of how 3D printers fit into modern manufacturing, it moves on to explore different types of 3D printing (also known as additive manufacturing), different applications of 3D printing - creating objects directly as well as restoration and repair - and how to identify sources and available materials.

Cutting through the technical jargon, readers will discover a variety of methods for the creation of 3D printable objects using software, 3D scanners and even photographs. The book explains how 3D printing works, what it can (and cannot) do, how 3D printing can be used in business, and its effect on traditional lines of business. It also considers consumer-level 3D printers and takes readers through the process of creating a RepRap (self-replicating rapid-prototyping) 3D printer.

3D Printing For Dummies is available in paperback and e-book priced 21.99. For more information please visit www.wiley.com.
