The market for 3D printers has exploded in the last few years with many low cost models designed for the home user. This has launched 1000’s of shared designs that people are printing and using at home. It has allowed ordinary people to create replacement parts for use around the house and toys for kids to play with that can easily be reprinted if it breaks. All of the designs can easily be shared and 3D printed by anyone with one of these printers.
But where do you get started if you want to be a part of this revolution? Chuck Hellebuyck delivers the answer in this book “Beginner’s Guide to 3D Printing.” In it he covers many of the popular 3D printer choices and then selects the under $500 Da Vinci 1.0 from XYZprinting to show you how easy it is to get started. He also takes you through using Tinkercad software for creating your own custom designs. He takes you further and shows you how to take a simple design and send it off to a professional 3D printer for a finished product anyone would be amazed that you created it.
