This book is designed as an overview of the technology, applications, and design issues associated with the new 3D printing technology. It will be divided into three parts. Part 1 will cover a brief background of the history and evolution of 3D printing, along with their use in industry and personal consumer end. Part 2 will document three different projects from start to finish. This will show a variety of printers and what is needed before a project starts, as well as some of the pitfalls to watch out for when creating 3D prints. Part 3 will be a look ahead to how 3D printing will continue to evolve and how 3D printing is already in our pop-culture. Companion files are included with applications and examples of 3D printing.
