The “3D Printing Blueprints” is a helpful book that reveals how to build 3D models for printing with simple projects. Joe Larson is the author of this book. This is a very hands-on guide to creating 3D models. This book starts with the key mechanics of 3D printing that you must understand to design an effective, printable object. After this, 3D Printing Blueprints dives into Blender that is widely used for 3D animation and simulation. 3D Printing Blueprints is entirely focused on the 3D modeling process. Joe focuses on the elements of Blender that are crucial for 3D printing and does not spend any time covering the remainder of the software that would be a distraction from making successfully printable designs.
Want to model a 3D printed prototype of an object that needs to be replaced or broken? This book will teach you how to accurately measure objects in the real world with a few basic measuring techniques and how to create an object for 3D printing around the objects measured.
