Publisher Comments:

Get a hands-on introduction to the world of personal fabrication with the MakerBot, the easiest rapid prototyper available. This book shows you how the MakerBot 3D printer democratizes manufacturing and brings the power of large factories right to your desktop. Not only will you learn how to operate MakerBot, youll also get guidelines on how to design and print your own prototypes.

3D printing is a key part of the prototyping process, yet desktop models to date have cost a minimum of $10,000. But not any longer. A variant on the open source RepRap 3D printer, the MakerBot Replicator 2 is ready-to-run out of the box and costs less than $2,500. This fun and informative guide—written by MakerBots creators and community members—opens up a new realm of discovery and creativity for makers, hobbyists, students, artists, designers, and tinkerers.
