Functional Design for 3D Printing.pdf
Functional Design for 3D Printing 3rd Edition is your guide to the intersection of design, 3d printing, and utility.This volume will demonstrate design practices that expand the possibilities for durable, functional objects. Your functional models will print quickly and reliably, delivering the full potential of the “desktop factory”.Functional Design for 3D Printing will help you to:Turn your ideas into practical designs that print reliably and assemble into durable, functional objectsMaximize strength for utility and estimate working and failure load ratingsMinimize printing time, material use, and weightMinimize the chance of print failure, ensuring reliable prints on a variety of machines and softwareDesign printable hinges, latches, interlocking parts, and other functional elementsDesign printable electronic breadboards, prototypes, and simple componentsIntegrate flexibility and multiple materials into your functional designsSolve bed adhesion and warping problems at the design level, improving print reliabilitySelect the correct structural paradigm(s) for each applicationKnow how and when to include dedicated support structures into your model for maximum printabilityIf you are an experienced designer, Functional Design for 3D Printing will present design principles and practices that will help you to quickly model functional, printable objects. This volume will help you to improve and accelerate your design and prototyping work-flow.
If you are a novice designer, Functional Design for 3D Printing will be a useful introduction, supplement, and reference for functional design. This volume will give you the technical framework for you to improve your expertise with a minimum of trial and error frustration, and will be your go-to guide for design solutions.
