I bought this book by chance at B&N when I was casually browsing at the bookstore.
I simply looked at the list of projects and bought it just on that basis.
When I got home, I was shocked and pleased at the same time to find that this book was written for the Simple Metal 3D printer.
And co-incidentally, I own a Printrbot Simple Metal 3D printer.
I have earnestly began working on the projects and my 12 year old seems to be very interested in the most basic of the projects - the 3D printed Desk lamp. And I've become interested in the Raygun Pen Stand. We're currently very occupied in printing out the parts for these projects.
Regardless of the type of 3D printer you own, this is a great way to get started with 3D printing. The projects range from real simple to super complex, and I think that this gets an absolute novice the motivation needed to get on with 3D printing.
