    Hi all. I am pleased to provide excerpts from my newly published book "Designing 3D Printers: Essential Knowledge". It is my hope that this will trigger discussion on the various subjects. As I make clear in the book, there generally isn't a "best" way of solving any given challenge, I look forward to hearing about how you have achieved 3D printing greatness.

    In this first introductory installment I discuss basics of 3d printing and some of the mechanical aspects of designing a stable frame. This section also introduces the subject of "in-context design". Of course Openbuilds products are highlighted. In addition please find the Table Of Contents; other excerpts will be uploaded over time, so check back here often.

    Feel free to comment here about the subject matter or anything else (3D printing related, please). I will update the book over time to keep it as current and clear as possible -- constructive feedback is welcomed.

    If anyone wishes to reach me directly please send a private message at the email address in my Profile page.

    Enjoy!

    Neil

    P.S. The full book can be purchased from Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/Designing-3D-Printers-Essential-Knowledge/dp/1082381861
