Our friends from ICTP, including Marco Zennaro (from WSNBlog), have launched an Open Book: "Low-cost 3D Printing for Science, Education and Sustainable Development"
The Science Dissemination Unit (SDU) of the Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP) has organized the 1stÂ International Workshop, to be held at the ICTP (Trieste, Italy) from May 6 to 8, 2013.
They introduce this Open Book, downloadable in low and high-resolution, as follows:
"Low-cost, three-dimensional (3D) desktop printing, although still in its infancy, is rapidly maturing, with seemingly unlimited potential. The hope is that this cutting-edge 3D technology will open new dimensions to science and education, and will make a marked impact in developing countries. This book gives a reasonable, first overview of current research on 3D printing. It aims to inspire curiosity and understanding in young scholars and new generations of scientists to motivate them to start building up their own 3D printing experiences and to explore the huge potential this technology provides â€“with the final goal of putting learning literally in their hands."
