The 3D Printing Handbook: Technologies, design

The 3D Printing Handbook: Technologies, design and applications


The 3D Printing Handbook provides practical advice on selecting the right technology and how-to design for 3D printing, based upon first-hand experience from the industry’s leading experts.

In this book:

  • The mechanisms behind all major 3D printing technologies
  • The benefits and limitations of each technology
  • Decision making tools for technology selection
  • Actionable design advice and guidelines
  • Industry case studies from world-leading brands


 “An impressive job capturing the most important elements of 3D printing in an easy-to-understand and visually dynamic manner.”
– Michael Molitch-Hou,

“This book acts as a much-needed resource for designers and engineers at any level of experience to better understand [3D printing] technology.”
– Sarah Goehrke,

“Whether you are a novice or a well aged veteran, you will certainly find many things you don’t yet know in this book.”
– Kerry Stevenson,

“3D Hubs draw on the thousands of 3D printing hours they have clocked up and bring this experience to the reader”
– Michael Petch,

The 3D Printing Handbook is a beautifully designed new reference work from 3D Hubs”

The 3D Printing Handbook.Like others have said, if you are a beginner hoping to learn the basics of 3D printing then this book will be great for you. It covers a broad range of topics that are applicable to specific 3D printing technologies. So on that end, it’s a great book and I would give it 5 stars.

However, if you are like me and using 3D printing everyday and have been for years, this book will likely not be that helpful to you. I was expecting a more detailed book that really got into the weeds of 3D printing – acceleration speeds, microstepping, back-pressure issues, retraction settings, dual extrusion, direct drive vs. bowden setups, flow rates, etc. I just simply misunderstood the purpose of the book when I bought it. So as for a technical textbook I would only give it 3 stars.

So should you buy it? Well it depends. If you’re looking to learn about 3D printing and various applications and nothing more, then yes – by all means. But if you REALLY want to learn about 3D printing, skip the book, save up and buy an actual 3D printer. Getting your hands dirty with a cheap, open-source 3D printer is by far the best way to really learn the depths of 3D printing. Note: there will be times where you’ll want to bang your head against the wall, but it’s worth it.

Lady Midnight: The Dark Artifices, Book 1

Lady Midnight: The Dark Artifices, Book 1


Lady Midnight: The Dark Artifices, Book 1 .The Shadowhunters of Los Angeles star in the first novel in Cassandra Clare’s newest series, The Dark Artifices, a sequel to the internationally best-selling Mortal Instruments series. Lady Midnight is a Shadowhunters novel.

It’s been five years since the events of City of Heavenly Fire that brought the Shadowhunters to the brink of oblivion. Emma Carstairs is no longer a child in mourning but a young woman bent on discovering what killed her parents and avenging her losses.

Together with her parabatai, Julian Blackthorn, Emma must learn to trust her head and her heart as she investigates a demonic plot that stretches across Los Angeles, from the Sunset Strip to the enchanted sea that pounds the beaches of Santa Monica. If only her heart didn’t lead her in treacherous directions….

Making things even more complicated, Julian’s brother, Mark – who was captured by the faeries five years ago – has been returned as a bargaining chip. The faeries are desperate to find out who is murdering their kind – and they need the Shadowhunters’ help to do it. But time works differently in faerie, so Mark has barely aged and doesn’t recognize his family. Can he ever truly return to them? Will the faeries really allow it?

Glitz, glamours, and Shadowhunters abound in this heartrending opening to Cassandra Clare’s Dark Artifices series.

Everyone who plays pool knows that it is “mostly mental,” but the conventional wisdom about the mental game is about as accurate as the idea that the earth is flat. Until now, no one with any expertise on how the human mind works has bothered to write about pool. In Pleasures of Small Motions, Bob Fancher, a psychotherapist and pool columnist, breaks new ground by applying good science to the mental game of billiards.This book does for pool what Timothy Gallwey’s bestselling “The Inner Game” books did for golf and tennis. Fancher explains how the conscious and unconscious mind work together, prescribes drills to help players improve, advises on mastering emotion and developing rhythm, explains the difference between concentration and focus, and gives invaluable insight on competitive play. (6 x 9, 160 pages, illustrations)Bob Fancher’s column, “Dr. Bob, Pool Shrink,” appears monthly in The American Cueist. He earned his Ph.D. at Vanderbilt University and practiced psychotherapy in New York for fourteen years. His acclaimed book Cultures of Healing has been used in classes at Columbia University, Princeton, and many other schools, and is writing has appeared in The Washington Post and other publications. He lives in Austin, Texas
