Functional Design for 3D Printing
Designing Printed Things for Everday Use : An Engineering HanbookBook - 2014
"3D Printing is changing the way we think about design, distribution, and manufacturing. By bringing the factory to the desktop, this technology opens the door to a multitude of new opportunities, and challenges paradigms from the drawing board to the boardroom. Designing usable products for 3D printing poses some unique challenges, and blends the roles of designer and engineer. In Functional Design for 3D Printing, the author explains and instructs how to leverage the strengths and minimize the weaknesses of the 3D printing process. From material selection to design details that will tolerate the design-to-printing process, this book gives the reader the tools to transform their designs into durable, useful products that print reliably on a variety of machines."--P.  of cover.
