About this book
OpenSCAD is an open-source 3D design platform that will help bring your designs to life. This book will show you how to make the best use of OpenSCAD and design and build objects using 3D printers.
The book starts by taking you through the 3D printing technology, the software used for designing your objects, and an analysis of the G-code produced by the 3D printer slicer software. Complete with step-by-step explanations of essential concepts, real-world examples, and self-assessment questions, the book helps you learn about 3D printers and how to set up a printing job. You'll then design your objects using the OpenSCAD program that provides a robust and free 3D compiler at your fingertips. As you set up a 3D printer for a print job, you'll understand how to configure the parameters to build well-defined designs.
By the end of this 3D printing book, you'll be ready to start designing and printing your own objects using OpenSCAD.
