About the author:

David Michael Moore has been a lifelong maker. Starting at an early age taking apart his parents' alarm clocks, he has always been curious about how things work, and how they are put together. This drive was cemented in the seventh grade when he had a wood and metal shop. A developer and designer by trade, David has been working with software for years. He is often found in his workshop or in the basement working with wood, metal, plaster, plastic, and electronics, or musing about the act of making on http://vandermore.com.

Slic3r is the tool you need to convert a digital 3D model into printing instructions for your 3D printer. It cuts the model into horizontal slices (layers), generates toolpaths to fill them, and calculates the amount of material to be extruded.

Instant Slic3r offers a hands-on way to learn about how Slic3r works, and how readers can use its powerful features to produce great prints. Starting from the initial setup, through advanced features such as post processing the G-Code that it produces, readers will get a good grasp on how Slic3r works, and ways to troubleshoot their prints to make the best objects their printer can produce.

Instant Slic3r
follows a practical, recipe-based approach that will show users how to complete the various steps to turn 3D models into actual objects with a 3D printer. People new to 3D printing and its software, especially beginners who'd like to start off with Slic3r will find this book invaluable. To find out more about the book please check the Packt book page.
