If you’re a professional looking to master the key aspects of 3D printing, this book is for you.


Sarah Goehrke,

“A much-needed resource for designers and engineers at any level of experience to better understand [3D printing] technology.”


Michael Petch,

“3D Hubs draw on the thousands of 3D printing hours they have clocked up and bring this experience to the reader.”


Michael Molitch-Hou,

“An impressive job capturing the most important elements of 3D printing in an easy to understand and visually dynamic manner.”


Kerry Stevenson,

“Whether you are a novice or a well-aged veteran, you will certainly find many things you don't yet know in this book”
