When people ask ''What's 3D printing for?'' they expect simple answers. But in the wild, designers find uses for 3D printing in a vast range of fields. Here's a quick survey from my book-in-progress ''Design & Modeling for 3D Printing'' (MakerMedia 2014).
A number of those who I am featuring in the Field Guides are attending Maker Faire New York, and I will be introducing a handful of them and inviting them to join me on stage to share their unique perspectives to this medium.
One of the biggest obstacles for those getting started with design for 3D printing are the wide range of approaches to using design software to get what you want -- in many cases with steep learning curves for learning each new type. Core to my book in-progress ''Design & Modeling for 3D Printing'' (Make:Books 2014) are chapters guiding the reader through the basics for each of the core approaches, to prepare the reader to tackle the ''3D Design Mode'' appropriate to the task at hand. This talk offers a brisk stroll through these fundamentals from a vendor-agnostic perspective and should arm both those entirely new to 3D design and those who hav
