Summary
The authors explain how to use the open source, MatterControl program, which allows you to control many common types of 3D printers (including both cartesian and delta style machines). It can stand alone, or it can be a companion to Mastering 3D Printing to show you how to install, configure, and use best practices with your printer and printing software. The book includes both step by step software walkthroughs and case studies with typical 3D printed objects. Whether you are a "maker" or a teacher of makers, this book will show you how to get the most out of your printer with the new standard for open source 3D printing software. --
