Mastering 3D Printing

Mastering 3D Printing, 9781484200261 (1484200268), Apress, 2014

Mastering 3D Printing shows you how to get the most out of your printer, including how to design models, choose materials, work with different printers, and integrate 3D printing with traditional prototyping to make techniques like sand casting more efficient.

You've printed key chains. You've printed simple toys. Now you're ready to innovate with your 3D printer to start a business or teach and inspire others.

Joan Horvath has been an educator, engineer, author, and startup 3D printing company team member. She shows you all of the technical details you need to know to go beyond simple model printing to make your 3D printer work for you as a prototyping device, a teaching tool, or a business machine.

What you’ll learn

• The history of 3D printers and the differences between them

• Why open source is important in 3D printing

• How to create models and use G-code with your printer

• How to make a challenging print work well

• How to choose and print with different materials

• How to integrate 3D printing into traditional prototyping processes

The Flexible Enterprise (Flexible Systems Management)
The Flexible Enterprise (Flexible Systems Management)

The need for enterprise flexibility in an era of rapidly advancing technology, increasing competition, and globalization, is apparent. Flexibility can be thought of as an ability of the enterprise to quickly and efficiently respond to market changes and to bring new products and services quickly to the market place. Beyond this definition, a...

VoIP Deployment For Dummies (Computer/Tech)
VoIP Deployment For Dummies (Computer/Tech)
It was February 2003 when my boss told me that I was going to be turning up a new VoIP softswitch. This was the first time I had ever heard of a softswitch, and about the second time I had heard of the term VoIP. There was a loose association of companies, hardware vendors, software guys, programmers, salesmen, and support staff that had to be...
Endoscopic and microsurgical anatomy of the cranial base
Endoscopic and microsurgical anatomy of the cranial base

This atlas illustrates the anatomical structures of the internal and external cranial base and their topography essential to transnasal endoscopic surgical approaches.

Currently, the majority of transnasal microsurgical interventions are largely restricted to hypophyseal interventions. The petrous part of the temporal bone and the...

The Elements of Computing Systems: Building a Modern Computer from First Principles
The Elements of Computing Systems: Building a Modern Computer from First Principles

In the early days of computer science, the interactions of hardware, software, compilers, and operating system were simple enough to allow students to see an overall picture of how computers worked. With the increasing complexity of computer technology and the resulting specialization of knowledge, such clarity is often lost. Unlike other...

User-Level Workflow Design: A Bioinformatics Perspective (Lecture Notes in Computer Science)
User-Level Workflow Design: A Bioinformatics Perspective (Lecture Notes in Computer Science)

This book discusses requirement-centric workflow design as an instance of consequent constraint-driven development, in four different scenarios: phylogenetic analysis, the dedicated GeneFisher-P scenario, the FiatFlux-P scenario, and microarray data analyses.
