Printing in Plastic: Build Your Own 3D Printer (Technology in Action)

Buy

The book you’re holding in your hands is going to show you how to build your very own 3D Printer. It’s not science fiction. It’s a device that will allow you to print out (in plastic) whatever you can imagine. (Okay, that’s a bit of a stretch – there are size limitations when using this machine.) Read the book – build the machine – print stuff that you can actually hold in your hands, use for prototyping your own inventions and replacing worn out parts, and basically taking something in your mind (or at least on a computer screen) and make it real. Congratulations – you’ve got a little bit of science fiction sitting on your desk.

Printing in Plastic: Build Your Own 3D Printer is your gateway into the exciting world of personal fabrication. The “printer” that you’ll build from this book is a personal fabricator capable of creating small parts and other objects from drops of molten plastic. Design a part using a modeling tool such as Google SketchUp. Then, watch while the fabricator head sweeps back and forth and upwards, depositing plastic in all the right places. You can build anything from a replacement tab to hold a bookshelf in place, to a small art project, to a bashguard for your bicycle. If you can conceive it and design it, you can build it, and you’ll have fun doing it! Printing in Plastic is aimed at creative people comfortable using power tools such as a table saw, circular saw, and drill press. Authors James Kelly and Patrick Hood-Daniel lead you through building a personal fabrication machine based upon a set of blueprints downloaded from their website. Example projects get you started in designing and fabricating your own parts. Bring your handyman skills, and apply patience during the build process. You too can be the proud owner of a personal fabricator—a three-dimensional printer.

Cyberspace Textuality: Computer Technology and Literary Theory
Computers were once thought of as number-crunching machines; but for most of us it is their ability to create worlds and process words that have made them into a nearly indispensable part of life. As Jacques Leslie puts it, if computers are everywhere, it is because they have grown into "poetry machines." The term "cyberspace"...

Wideband TDD: WCDMA for the Unpaired Spectrum
The 3rd generation mobile wireless technology standardized by 3GPP has two main components, namely FDD (Frequency Division Duplex) and TDD (Time Division Duplex). While both of these employ WCDMA, the former uses a pair of frequency bands and the latter uses a single unpaired frequency band. Within TDD, two versions have been standardized, namely...
