Master the art of 3D printing with step-by-step examples and hands-on DIY projects
3D Printing with Autodesk 123D, Tinkercad, and MakerBot leads inventors, crafters, and entrepreneurs through the process of creating with free software from Autodesk, a leading provider of modeling software, and Makerbot, a leading “prosumer” 3D printer.
The book covers six apps: Design, Catch, Meshmixer, Tinkercad, Make, and the CNC Utility. You’ll learn how to make solid, mesh, and reality capture models and how to turn them into 3D prints, laser cutting patterns, and construction drawings. The newcomer to modeling will find fun projects, clear, easy-to-read text, and screenshots showing everything from installing the software to admiring the finished product. Accompanying videos and digital files make this book truly “hands on.”
