After years of work, my 3D printing book is finally in press! Title:
3D Printer Engineering Volume 1: Motion Platform Design
You can pre-order here for 15% off early-bird discount: http://www.sublimepublications.com/
This is a book for anyone who designs, modifies, or maintains 3D printers. Which is definitely everyone here!
The first round of printing is supposed to be done in 1-2 weeks, so it will ship soon. The early bird discount is planned to end at that point.
Table of contents for Volume 1:
- Machine Architectures
- Popular Machine Architectures
- Frame Construction
- Popular Frame Types
- Motion Hardware
- Popular Motion Systems
Some of y’all already know this, but yes, this is the first book in a whole series of 3-5 or more books. Volume 2 (Drivetrains) and Volume 3 (Stepper Motors) are fully written, but need illustrating and editing, and that takes a healthy while. So I think Volume 2 is maybe a year out. (I wouldn’t wait on more volumes to come out before you buy; I wrote Vol 1 to be a good resource on its own.)
Thanks to all the regulars here for years of interesting posts and discussions – you were part of developing this book!
