Summary: It's easy to get started with 3d printing, but it takes work to become a great 3d designer. Once you've graduated from downloading other peoples' model and doing simple rudimentary modeling of your own, you're going to want to try your hand at making something beautiful and enduring. This gets you going with professional-level (and free!) design tools, and shows you how to model, scan, and perfect your designs. You'll learn amazing tips and tricks along the way, such as how to make 3D-printed moving models that print in place: take them off the printer, give them a wiggle, and they are ready to move! --Publisher's description.

Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

<p>France's Le FabShop has extensive experience testing 3D printers and creating digital models for them. From an articulated Makey Robot to a posable elephant model, Samuel N. Bernier and the rest of Le FabShop's team have created some of the most-printed designs in the 3D printing world. This book uses their work to teach you how to get professional results out of a desktop 3D printer without needing to be trained in design. Through a series of tutorials and case studies, this book gives you the techniques to turn a product idea into a 3D model and a prototype. Focusing on free design software and affordable technologies, the exercises in this book are the perfect boost to any beginner looking to start designing for 3D printing.</p> <p>Designing for the tool and finding a good tool to fit the design--these are at the core of the product designer's job, and these are the tools this book will help you master.</p> <p>Foreword by Carl Bass, Autodesk's CEO, a passionate and prolific Maker.</p> <p>In Design For 3D Printing , you'll:</p> Learn the different 3D printing technologies Choose the best desktop 3D printer Discover free 3D modeling software Become familiar with 3D scanning solutions Find out how to go from a bad to a good 3D source file, one that's ready-to-print
