The age of 3D printing and personal fabrication is upon us! You've probably heard of the incredibly sophisticated, yet inexpensive 3D printers that can produce almost any creation you give them. But how do you become part of that revolution? Sandeep Singh takes you through the skills you need to learn and the services and technologies you need to know-explaining what 3D printing is, how it works, and what it can do for you. You'll find yourself rapidly prototyping and learning to produce complex designs that can be fabricated by online 3D printing services or privately-owned 3D printers-in your hands in no time. Beginning Google SketchUp for 3D Printing starts by explaining how to use SketchUp and its plug-ins to make your design products. You will learn how to present and animate 3D models, and how to use Google Earth and 3D Warehouse to sell and market your 3D models. You'll also catch a glimpse of the 3D printing's future so you can plan ahead while mastering today's tools. Beginning Google SketchUp for 3D Printing is the perfect book for 3D designers, hobbyists, woodworkers, craftspeople, and artists interested in the following: Designing in 3D using SketchUp Using the online 3D printing pipeline Animating SketchUp 3D models Becoming familiar with rapid prototyping technology Navigating new 3D and personal fabrication technologies Working with Google Earth and 3D Warehouse with confidence Welcome to the era of 3D printing and personal fabrication!

About the Author

Sandeep Singhcurrently works as a project engineer in technical support of Energy Management Software (EMS). He has a bachelor's degree in electrical and electronics engineering from California State University, Sacramento and a master's degree in biomedical engineering from Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo. Sandeep started using SketchUp in 2007 after taking a class in product design and development where he learned how CAD software can be used to prototype models for biomedical prostheses and artificial organs. He found SketchUp to be the simplest modeling software to use and yet advanced enough to design complicated models for his own projects.

2.0 out of 5 stars Sketchup for 3D ordering June 16 2011
By KBill - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Book is easy to follow and read. It covers Sketchup well, I learned a trick or two. It only covers 3D printing as it pertains to ordering from Shapeways. I think Shapeways is great, but I have a printer and was hoping to get some insight for using it. There is mention of DIY 3D printing, but no workflows. Disappointed. Cleaning up models for Shapeways is enough to fill a pamphlet, the rest is fluff.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed July 2 2013
By cynthia k howe - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book was not what I expected. As a new owner of a 3D printer, I was hoping for lessons on how to design in Sketchup specifically for my printer. While the book tells you WHAT is required for 3D printing, it does not really tell you HOW to obtain those needed solids etc. Also, way too much of the book is about uploading your project to be commercially printed. I felt that this was more of an ad for those services than a real reference manual that would help me use Sketch UP to design for my own printer.

1/2 of the book is about Shapeways it is to bad the title "Beginning Google SketchUp for 3D Printing" is now taken
someone who actually wanted to write a book for beginners using SketchUp could have used it. Posibble by the fifth revision the author might learn how to write a beginners book.

There is some interesting things, his revolving stairway was great but doubtful it would ever be printed in 3D.
The Sketchyphysics chapter was fascinating but again not for a beginner wanting to learn SketchUp for 3D printing.

I will never use Shapeways, I have a 3D printer on order, I need to learn SketchUp.

I should have headed the prior reviews but I thought it couldn't be that bad. Like they say you'll get more out of doing the SketchUp tutorials and just playing around with SketchUp.

Save your money, you'll figure out all this shiet out pretty quickly after designing your first widget. After that... why would you need the book? For the truly un-initiated, go ahead. Its a small price to pay to get you past day one after you've shelled out almost a grand for your new printer.
