Summary
--create whatever you dream up--quickly and inexpensively. When it comes to 3D printing, the sky's the limit! Covers each type of 3D printing technology available today: stereolithology, selective sintering, used deposition, and granular bindingProvides information on the potential for the transformation of production and manufacturing, reuse and recycling, intellectual property design controls, and the commoditization of productsWalks you through the process of creating a RepRap printer using open source designs, software, and hardwareOffers strategies for improved success in 3D printing On your marks, get set, innovate!
