Long Description
3D-printing and personal fabrication are upon us! You've heard of incredibly sophisticated, but cheap, 3D printers that supposedly produce almost anything we tell them to. But how do you become part of that revolution? Sandeep Singh takes you through the skills we need to learn, and the services and technologies you need to know "separating the hype from reality and explaining what 3D printing is, how it works, and why you need to be able to engage in it. You'll gain the knowledge needed to produce complex designs that can be fabricated by online 3D printing services or privately owned 3D printers. This book first be dives into using Sketchup and its plugins to make design products. Then it demonstrates how to present and animate 3D models, and in particular how to use Google Earth and 3D Warehouse to make an optimal case for sales and marketing your 3D models. Finally, you'll take a look into the future of 3D printing, ripe with even more disruptive technologies like RepRap and widespread personal fabrication. Introduces Sketchup Teaches 3D Modeling Builds 3D Printing Expertise What you'll learn 3D design for beginners Using Sketchup Using the online 3D printing pipeline Animating Sketchup 3D models Becoming familiar with rapid prototyping technology Navigating new 3D and personal fabrication technologies Negotiate Google Earth and 3D Warehouse with confidence Who this book is for 3D Designers, hobbyists, woodworkers, craftsmen and artists.
