    This is a PDF version of my latest book on 3D printing. The past year has been very exciting, and I really wanted to share as many of my AM related experiences and experiments as possible. If you are just starting out with 3D printing, then I hope that this book will help you avoid a lot of the stupid mistakes that I made with my Makerbot. If you are a veteran of the field then I hope that my quirky and contrarian take on things will inspire you to try some similarly unconventional approaches.

    This book is completely self published and was written without the extensive support and back up of the large publishing houses that I am used to. It is therefore certainly not as polished as Hod and Melba's 'Fabrication', or Kirk Hausman's recently released '3D Printing for Dummies.' The main advantage of doing it by myself was that I did not have to answer to a big company editor, and could therefore be quite controversial in parts. Mine is a much more personal take on the subject, and although it might not appeal to more conservative purists, it should strike a chord if you are a hobbyist or home tinkerer like myself. The book features a wide range of industry pioneers, both printer builders as well as end users, all making some very interesting products. Their cooperation was invaluable in putting this book together and I hope that you will support their work if you possibly can.

    This book is also available at in Mobi format for Kindle Readers as well as a traditional paper version.

    In both cases I have tried to keep the cost as low as I can. If you enjoy the PDF version then I hope that you can help me spread the word about the two retail versions. Although I am keen to share, a man has still got to eat. Please feel free to pass this PDF version of the book along to anybody that you think might enjoy it. If you have access to a Makers' Club or Hackerspace, then please consider posting the attached promo sheet on your message board. If you would like to make the download available on your website then that is cool too. If you could send me a link, then that would be great.
