The book has good information for the beginner and is full of resources listings, but it is repetitive and contains numerous language errors. Needs more editing. Also, the book has little information for SLA 3D printing.

I was fortunate to get my paws on an advance copy of Joe Micallef's book on 3D printing. It's superbly written, easy to follow, and for newbies who don't have a lot of beans to spend. I love how the author gives so many resources on how you can get started using free or open source software and even outsource the printing if you can't afford to invest in equipment right away. I don't have a technical background and although it is for people who have some experience with 3-D art, you don't need it to follow along and learn. If you're fascinated by this innovative technology, I highly recommend it.

Lots of good information on an amazing tech. 3D printing is coming your way people--- be ready.There are many 3DP files out there for free but many have print-ability issues. This book offers lots of advice to help you choose files wisely, or how to build them right yourself.
