Get a hands-on introduction to the world of personal fabrication with the MakerBot, the easiest and most affordable rapid prototyper available. This book shows you how the MakerBot open source 3D printer democratizes manufacturing and brings the power of large factories right to your desktop. Not only will you learn how to operate MakerBot, you’ll also get guidelines on how to design and print almost anything you can imagine — including models, mechanical parts, puzzles, and toys.
3D printing is a key part of the prototyping process, yet desktop models to date have cost upwards of $10,000. But not any longer. A variant on the open source RepRap 3D printer, MakerBot is designed to be assembled quickly and cheaply. Even the deluxe MakerBot kit costs under $1,000. This fun and informative guide — written by MakerBot’s creators — opens up a new realm of discovery and creativity for makers, hobbyists, students, artists, designers, and tinkerers.
