Python is quickly becoming the world's most popular programming language, for everything from quick-and-easy hobbyist calculations to running some of the biggest online websites such as Google, YouTube, Dropbox, Reddit, and many others. OpenSCAD is a powerful 3D modeling language for creating 3D printed plastic parts for hobbyists and engineers. Python for 3D Printing enables the reader to leverage the power, versatility, & simplicity of Python to enhance & super-charge the already powerful capabilities of OpenSCAD for Makers, Engineers, & anyone who wants to create 3D shapes for 3D printing or manufacturing. Both Python and OpenSCAD are free software tools that run on Windows, Macs, and Linux machines. The symbiotic use of these two tools enables a MUCH SHORTER LEARNING CURVE than when using the expensive software packages, and it puts you in control of your designs instead of your designs controlling you! The complete source code Python listing for driving OpenSCAD using easier-to-remember and easier-to-use commands IS INCLUDED WITH THIS BOOK, along with creative examples of the use of all new commands. You'll see how easy it is to integrate these two tools such that you'll see results instantly on your screen when your Python code runs.

OpenSCAD is unlike most of the expensive software packages you perhaps have heard about or used. First, it's an open source, free program, instead of costing up to thousands of dollars. Another important feature is the way it works. Instead of interacting visually with a myriad of menus, sub-menus, buttons, complex settings, and parametrically driven object trees, OpenSCAD lets you drive the 3D modeling using a programming language all its own. It's a different way of thinking and creating, and once the few commands are understood, many people prefer it greatly over other programs. Even though OpenSCAD is driven by text commands, the results are shown in an interactive 3D window, complete with panning, zooming, and rotating. This instant visual feedback makes creating your 3D objects a breeze. By creating an interpretive Python syntax layer that translates to OpenSCAD, these and several other unique issues are eliminated or minimized. You are required to learn and use only a simplified subset of standard Python syntax, which you possibly already know. (If you're new to Python, just know it's great for many other programming tasks as well.) Python enables more complex OpenSCAD models to be created in a shorter time because of its shorter learning curve, extendibility, flexibility, and the overriding of some limitations and quirks of the OpenSCAD language. In short, the combination of Python and OpenSCAD provides a very powerful and flexible system for creating 3D models in ways neither programming language alone can provide. All while having you learn a simple subset of the syntax of only one programming language, one of the most popular & powerful programming language in the world.

In 3D Printing With MatterControl, Joan Horvath and Rich Cameron, the team behind Mastering 3D Printing, explain step-by-step how to use the MatterControl program, which allows you to control many common types of 3D printers (including both cartesian and delta style machines). 3D Printing With MatterControl can stand alone, or it can be a companion to Mastering 3D Printing to show you how to install, configure, and use best practices with your printer and printing software. The book includes both step by step software walkthroughs and case studies with typical 3D printed objects. Whether you are a "maker" or a teacher of makers, 3D Printing with MatterControl will show you how to get the most out of your printer with the new standard for open source 3D printing software. While there are books available on 3D printers, and even a few on software to make models for printers, there are few good sources covering the software that actually controls these printers. MatterControl is emerging as the leading open source software for 3D printers, and 3D Printing With MatterControl covers this new standard in this brief book.

Desktop or DIY 3D printers are devices you can either buy preassembled as a kit, or build from a collection of parts to design and print physical objects including replacement household parts, custom toys, and even art, science, or engineering projects. Maybe you have one, or maybe you're thinking about buying or building one. Practical 3D Printers takes you beyond how to build a 3D printer, to calibrating, customizing, and creating amazing models, including 3D printed text, a warship model, a robot platform, windup toys, and arcade-inspired alien invaders. You'll learn about the different types of personal 3D printers and how they work; from the MakerBot to the RepRap printers like the Huxley and Mendel, as well as the whiteAnt CNC featured in the Apress book Printing in Plastic. You'll discover how easy it is to find and design 3D models using web-based 3D modeling, and even how to create a 3D model from a 2D image. After learning the basics, this book will walk you through building multi-part models with a steampunk warship project, working with meshes to build your own action heroes, and creating an autonomous robot chassis. Finally, you'll find even more bonus projects to build, including wind-up walkers, faceted vases for the home, and a handful of useful upgrades to modify and improve your 3D printer.

Learn physics, engineering, and geology concepts usually seen in high school and college in an easy, accessible style. This second volume addresses these topics for advanced science fair participants or those who just like reading about and understanding science. 3D Printed Science Project Volume 2 describes eight open-source 3D printable models, as well as creative activities using the resulting 3D printed pieces. The files are designed to print as easily as possible, and the authors give tips for printing them on open source printers. As 3D printers become more and more common and affordable, hobbyists, teachers, parents, and students stall out once they've printed some toys and a few household items. To get beyond this, most people benefit from a “starter set” of objects as a beginning point in their explorations, partially just to see what is possible. This book tells you the solid science stories that these models offer, and provides them in open-source repositories. What You Will Learn Create (and present the science behind) 3D printed models Review innovative ideas for tactile ways to learn concepts in engineering, geology and physics Learn what makes a models easy or hard to 3D print Who This Book Is For The technology- squeamish teacher and parents who want their kids to learn something from their 3D printer but don’t know how, as well as high schoolers and undergraduates.
