Hurrah! This moment has come!

The first book on 3D printing and 3D printers in Russian

The book is translated and made up! It took almost a year, but I assure you, the information in the book is more than relevant. I recommend the book to anyone who wants to learn more about budget 3D printers, wants to get to know them better.

The book is currently the most complete, relevant, detailed and rich source of knowledge about budget / personal 3D printers and 3D printing. The book tells about the history of 3D printing, about the types of printers (and the advantages of budget printers over industrial ones), printing methods, 3D CAD modeling programs (and the advantages of paid and free programs), gives basic definitions of 3D printing, and tells about the various methods of using personal 3D printers , talks about how recycling plastic waste can improve the environment and create useful things, about how to teach 3D printing to children. I dare say that a representative of any profession with the help of this book will understand and find for himself the advantages of 3D printing and feel all the potential that it contains!

I thank all the translators for their interest and efforts, I especially want to mention aks_id - Oksana Solovyova and alex_itz - Alexander Kuznetsova - the guys gave themselves to the translation to the end without sparing time and effort. Alexander also made up the book and gave it a finished, neat and comfortable look. Serious work has been done, I ask readers to understand possible inaccuracies with understanding, I ask all comments and suggestions for translation to be sent to:
