3D Printing Insights from Author Carla Diana- Interesting artifacts and textures sometimes emerge as a byproduct of the 3D printing process. The cover letters for LEO were the result of a "happy accident." A print of some standard extruded lettering was stopped halfway through, and the letterforms that emerged were more unique than what we had originally designed. People often ask us what typeface it is and we love describing how it was formed from a print that's halfway done.- By printing a hollow piece and then pausing the printer halfway through, you can take advantage of "throw-ins" to give an object special properties. For example, magnets or metal parts can be thrown in to make your pieces stick together. In LEO, we used rice as a throw-in to make a shaker instrument.- The 3D modeling software Rhino has a plugin for Python scripting that allows people to use code to generate forms based on algorithms. For example, the jewelry that the character Stephanie creates is based on mathematical spirals.- It's fun to experiment with different polishes to change the surface of 3D-printed parts. Acetone (the same thing that's in nail polish remover) can be brushed on the surface of an ABS or PLA print to make it smooth and shiny.- When 3D-printing food, it's important to design for two-and-a-half dimensions: This means a 3D object where higher layers do not hang above lower layers in the 3D print. This helps you avoid sagging.

Carla Diana enjoys living as close to the near future as possible. In her studio she works on future-specting projects in areas such as domestic robots, mobile devices and sentient kitchen appliances, combining experience in industrial and interaction design to create solutions that bridge the gap between the physical and the digital. She has taught and lectured internationally, including a year as visiting faculty at the Georgia Institute of Technology, where she was the creative director for the iconic humanoid robot, Simon, and four years at the Savannah College of Art and Design, where she co-wrote the school's first Interactive Design curriculum. Currently, she is a faculty member at U. Penn, and a founding faculty member of SVA's Products of Design program.

Carla's book serves as my first, quick introduction to the emerging technology of 3D printing. Though the book's layout, art and storybook text are clearly aimed at readers in the 5-8 year age bracket, anyone reading this book can get a quick, cheerfully-expressed, and fun introduction to 3D printing by reading this book. I have personally watched the enthusiastic adoption of 3D printing by non-professionals while attending THE MAKER FAIRE over the past few years, and am sure this is a huge trend that is only in its infancy.
Carla Diana is multi-talented and her artwork, text and object design display her curiosity and sense of humor beautifully.
The book does great job explaining an interesting new technology and shows a wide variety of creative and practical applications that your children will get excited about. The story serves as a catalyst for getting children (and adults) to begin making and designing projects on their own.
After reading the book, I wanted to go out and get myself a 3D printer so I could begin exploring the technology with my nieces and nephews.
