Most Helpful Customer Reviews

This is a must have book for any library that wants to add 3D printing services or as a reference for ones that have 3D printers already. I refer to this book as my bible, because it has been invaluable for helping me setting up 3D printing services in my library as a new makerspace. The authors have utilized the open source, sharing maker mindset, that has also helped make good affordable 3D printers for the public. Countless examples are used not only from the authors experience with 3D printing, but other libraries as well that have established services. If you have any questions about 3D printing; from selecting one, utilizing the correct software, troubleshooting, etc... Please buy this book, you will not regret it.
