Publisher's Summary

The Maker Movement represents a dramatic shift in the democratization of design and manufacturing. Advancements in new technologies such as 3D printing and laser cutting are putting powerful tools once only available to large institutions like NASA in the hands of millions of people worldwide. This rapid pace of change opens up new possibilities that were never before imaginable, placing strong emphasis on resourcefulness as the path to technical competence.

The Maker’s Field Guide has been written as the first and only resource of its kind - demystifying almost every single tool, material, and technique used to make or build professional quality appearance models or prototypes for industrial design, engineering, and product development. This book reveals everything from the fundamental building blocks of prototype creation, to the secrets behind some of the most advanced tools and machinery - including both the manual "old-school" tools of the trade, along with the more advanced "new-school" state-of-the-art technologies that are being used by top industry professionals in all areas of research, design, and film-making today.

An essential resource for professional makers or DIY tinkerers alike - whether it be an interest in building special effects props for film or TV, or a realistic concept prototype to showcase on Kickstarter - this book features practical, non jargon-filled explanations that can be easily understood and applied by makers of all ages or experience levels. Having the right tools, and knowing how to use them properly, is half the battle to achieving professional quality results. Learn to become a prototyping grand master with some of the most highly sought-after skills in STEM, with the only comprehensive resource available on making anything imaginable.

New Audible edition exclusive: Jobs as a Designer/Maker an invaluable reference for aspiring creative professionals, entrepreneurial business owners, and students alike.
