Desktop or DIY 3D printers are devices you can either buy preassembled as a kit, or build from a collection of parts to design and print physical objects including replacement household parts, custom toys, and even art, science, or engineering projects. Maybe you have one, or maybe you're thinking about buying or building one. Practical 3D Printers takes you beyond how to build a 3D printer, to calibrating, customizing, and creating amazing models, including 3D printed text, a warship model, a robot platform, windup toys, and arcade-inspired alien invaders. You'll learn about the different types of personal 3D printers and how they work; from the MakerBot to the RepRap printers like the Huxley and Mendel, as well as the whiteAnt CNC featured in the Apress book Printing in Plastic. You'll discover how easy it is to find and design 3D models using web-based 3D modeling, and even how to create a 3D model from a 2D image. After learning the basics, this book will walk you through building multi-part models with a steampunk warship project, working with meshes to build your own action heroes, and creating an autonomous robot chassis. Finally, you'll find even more bonus projects to build, including wind-up walkers, faceted vases for the home, and a handful of useful upgrades to modify and improve your 3D printer.

Complete guide to explore 3d printing, scanning, sculpting, and milling DESCRIPTION This book 3D Printing Made Simple takes you through this exciting innovation, a technology called 3D Printing. It is revolutionising the way we do a lot of things and not just the creation of physical objects. The huge growth rates are a direct result of its applications for prototyping and mass production in a number of industries, thanks to an ever-increasing list of 3D printable materials. The World Economic Forum describes it as one of the four pillars of the 4th Industrial Revolution alongside AR, VR & AI, big data, blockchains etc. Many developing countries like India, completely missed the 1st two industrial revolutions (steam & petrol engines) and partially benefitted in the 3rd (electronics/computers). Now can we afford to not, or just partially participate in the 4th Industrial Revolution? Book adopts a practical approach, with step-by-step instructions to help guide readers. Lots of screenshots are given for each and every step where needed to design a high-quality model in Blender for 3D printing. KEY FEATURES Step-by-step guide to learn the techniques, methodologies, and finished products Learn to employ 3D technology in new and inventive ways Know to enlarge, reduce, and repurpose existing artwork.
