Chapter 7. 3D Design and the 3D Printer

The availability of 3D printing in Makerspaces has exploded since the first RepRap Darwin was produced in 2007. This is the new wagon headed west. Inspired by its success, the open source community has engineered numerous versions and has made this technology more than affordable for any Makerspace.

With its almost limitless potential to produce usable objects, it’s not hard to see why the 3D printer has become so popular.
