2,0 su 5 stelleVery little actual design information
5 settembre 2014 - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
This book contains some interesting ideas, but virtually no practical, usable information. For example, it includes the advice "Anything incorporated into the design to minimize the x-y tensile leverage each successive layer will have on the layers below it will reduce warping and make your item print more reliably." but gives no examples of how to actually implement this. The section on Fastening and Joinery contains at least six similar passages with only few unannotated pictures as examples. It also spends far too many pages on non-design related issues. I've figured out my printer, aligned and calibrated it and get excellent results. I've started to design my own part and was really looking forward to some practical advice about how to design better parts. This book does not provide that.
This book is what I would consider a must read if you have a 3D printer that uses filament. I use laser, so a lot of the priciples of design were just not applicable to me. It was an excellent read. I gave it to a friend of mine that has a Makerbot and he found it to be extremely helpful.

The book provides excellent information on designing 3D models. I learned many concepts that are relevant in designing objects. Topics I found most helpful include how to provide relief for stress that can lead to curling/warping, guideline on using and avoiding support and how to design holes in 3D models. If you have just basic knowledge for how to design, and you want to take your designs to the next level, this book is great.
This book is a great resource for anyone looking to dive into the cavern that is design for 3d printing. Its much more than strict design guidelines, it's a deeper level of core understanding, in order to glean the knowledge required to design for 3d printing. There are far too many different design principles, for an infinite number of possible product shapes, to be able to explain them all. Clifford Smyth has distilled several years worth of expertise into an easy to read, simple to understand guidebook, that is very accessible, and a great read for anyone remotely interested in 3d printing!
