    Very good book for beginners. It provides versatile information about 3D printing technology, a bit about its history, its variations, RepRap project, printer components, common 3D printer (RepRap) models, software used in the pre-printing process, filament types and other info (like usage of 3D printing in current market and industry). I liked this book and I am giving it 5 stars. More reading and, more importantly, practice is needed though if you'd like to print. This book doesn't make one eli Very good book for beginners.

I liked this book and I am giving it 5 stars. More reading and, more importantly, practice is needed though if you'd like to print. This book doesn't make one eligible to go and use a 3D printer. It only prepares her/him to get a vision about almost all aspects of 3D printing so s/he know how the process goes.

    This book is an ugly mess of trivia and not much more. 3d printing starts with the Industrial Revolution. And by the next chapter I was grateful it did not go back to Lascaux. Anyway, you will find out that Microsoft is using 3d printing for their console controllers. And it's Microsoft and not the engineers working at Microsoft.

    Some useful information on 3d printing terminology, printer models, and 3d design software surrounded by a lot of fluff. The book is sporadically organized and you find yourself reading the same information in several different sections of the book.

    Disjointed and poorly edited. Could have gotten the same info from spending 30 minutes on wikipedia.

    Nice overview of 3D printing. Dives into building a RepRap i3 printer. The author, aka RichRap, has a deep background in the RepRap project.
