It's amazing how far time advances things. Printers seemed to be behind for the most part. We had color and photo printers but not much else until this new technology emerged! There is so much information about 3D printing that its astonishing to think of the possibilities! This book gives you a glimpse into the possibility of where this may soon go. It is simply amazing when you learn what this is currently capable of. Technology is advancing, this is not only an emerging technology but one that is destined to be vital to the world economy. An amazing book, educational, informative and really captures your imagination to the possibilities! Must have!

I am so pleased at last to see a 3D printing book that is aimed at entrepreneurs, rather than financial investors or technical whizzes. Not only will this book give you a through grounding in how the technology works, but it also looks at what opportunities currently exist for small business types like myself. The author obviously has a lot of experience on online auction sites such as eBay and Taobao, but the last section looking at the future of 3D printing is a really interesting read too.
