A great resource for anyone feeling like they have outgrown beginner 3D design tools, this book takes you on a solid Sketchup tour including extensions, design and production tips and tricks for optimal digital manufacturing!

Resource summaries are wonderful in this book for new-to-3D-printing individuals. The book is a nice intro to projects. Interesting peripheral info along the way that you might not know.. like materials that shrink. Briefly describes printer types. Images inside are black & white, plentiful, and illustrate different points very well. I am not using SketchUp and skimmed over details on the software tools.
