NEW PRODUCT – The 3D Printing Handbook by 3D Hubs


3D Hubs has published what may be the bible for 3D printing. The 3D Printing Handbook is intended for all skill levels, and it’s an essential book for makers wanting to dip their toes in the ever-growing pool of 3D printing design and application.

The wealth of practical advice and guidelines come from first-hand experience from machine operators and industry experts. This tome is seriously chock-full of straightforward advice and mesmerizing full-page photographs.

If ever you need an incredibly maker-motivating pep talk, look no further than the great forward by Tony Fadell, creator of the iPod and founder of Nest.

“‘The Handbook’ will help to guide you on your own path as you look to leverage 3D printing and its potential to create your own breakthrough products that hopefully will change the world. Every designer and engineer should keep it close as it paves your way into new manufacturing technologies that will spur your creativity and unlock your ideas as they become reality. Creation is changing, manufacturing is changing, and design is changing, turn the page it’s time to stay ahead…”
