Understanding 3D Printing (Volumes 1-4) Reviews
I was expecting morethis isn't much. I was really hooping for something a little more in depth. backlash and how to combat it, diagrams, discussion on the yup pies of extruder, hot ends, etc. this really isn't a whole lot to go on, and"volume" in the title is a bit misleading.
