9781783550753: 3D Printing for Architects with MakerBot

Learn how to create successful 3D architectural models that you can print out with MakerBot Replicator 2X. It brings an extra dimension to your presentations and distinguishes your practice from the rest.

Overview

  • Intelligently design a model to be printed on the MakerBot from the scratch
  • Make the MakerBot replicator work for you, automating tasks and doing post processing on MakerBot output
  • Full of practical tips, tricks, and step-by-step instructions to successfully design your model with MakerBot

In Detail

Recently we’ve seen consumer 3D printing gaining traction. The power of 3D printing is huge and its applications are seemingly endless—medicine, architecture, and food, to name a few. Incorporating 3D printing into your design cycle reduces overall project costs and lowers project duration, as it allows for rapid prototype iterations and instant, more descriptive feedback. 3D printing looks to revolutionize modern manufacturing and the technology is improving in leaps and bounds each and every day.

"3D Printing for Architects with MakerBot" strives to give you a good foundation for what MakerBot can do. It offers a hands-on way to learn about how 3D printing works, and how you can use its powerful features to produce great prints. With this book, you will learn everything you need to know about designing and printing architectural models using the MakerBot Replicator 2X and how to incorporate multiple parts and colours from designs created by you and the community.

"3D Printing for Architects with MakerBot" will take you through a number of clear, practical examples which will teach you how to unlock the power of your MakerBot Replicator 2X and the MakerBot community. It will show you how to create models composed of multiple parts and colours which are 3D printer ready.

You will also learn about the different types of 3D printing and the history leading up to the purchase of MakerBot by Stratasys. You will take a look into the details of 3D printing software, learning how to convert your 3D CAD model into a physical 3D prototype and how various options will affect your print. You will then create more advanced architectural models with parts created to fit together that are designed either by you or from the extensive community libraries found on Thingiverse and GrabCAD. If you want to learn how to gain the upper hand over the competition by creating architectural prototypes using 3D printing, then this is the book for you.

What you will learn from this book

  • Modify and orient models in Makerware
  • Reduce warpage during prints
  • Discover the impact of print settings and other features on overall quality
  • Use dual extruder for multi-colour printing
  • Create advanced assemblies utilizing component tolerancing
  • Learn how to design for assembly
  • Incorporate flexibility into your designs
  • Find and modify models from Thingiverse and GrabCAD
  • Scale for a tradeoff between time and precision

Approach

This is a hands-on tutorial for a user to become well-versed with 3D printing using MakerBots.

Who this book is written for

"3D Printing for Architects with MakerBot" is ideal for architects looking to creating stunning prototypes using the MakerBot Replicator 2X 3D printer. Having experience using 3D CAD software is beneficial but not necessary as this book mentions several different CAD packages for beginners, up to those more advanced users who are perhaps looking for additional features.

About the Author:

Matthew B. Stokes

Matthew B. Stokes graduated with a combined Mechanical Engineering and Computer Science Dual Degree and Technological Entrepreneurship Certificate from the University of Western Ontario. He is interested and has been actively involved in consumer 3D printing since 2009, and has completed an Engineering Co-op at KnowRoaming—a Canada-based technology company, where he worked to design and test 3D-printed cellphone cases for embedding hardware. He has owned and operated a MakerBot Replicator since spring 2012, and has competed in several 3D printing design contests.

Currently, Matthew is back at the University of Western Ontario completing a Master's degree in Biomedical Engineering in a collaboration model involving Muscular Skeletal Health Research (CMHR) and Computer Aided Medical Intervention (CAMI) under Dr. Louis Ferreira. His expected date of graduation is 2015.

Matthew has a wide range of interests outside 3D printing, including Raspberry Pi, Android applications, hackathons, Tough Mudder events, and design challenges.
