Mastering 3D printing : modeling, printing, and prototyping with reprap-style 3D printers by Joan C Horvath( )

13 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 520 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mastering 3D Printing shows you how to get the most out of your printer, including how to design models, choose materials, work with different printers, and integrate 3D printing with traditional prototyping to make techniques like sand casting more efficient. You've printed key chains. You've printed simple toys. Now you're ready to innovate with your 3D printer to start a business or teach and inspire others. Joan Horvath has been an educator, engineer, author, and startup 3D printing company team member. She shows you all of the technical details you need to know to go beyond simple model printing to make your 3D printer work for you as a prototyping device, a teaching tool, or a business machine

Practical fashion tech : wearable technologies for costuming, cosplay, and everyday by Joan C Horvath( )

8 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 358 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"... Pull back the curtain on making fun and innovative costumes and accessories incorporating technologies like low-cost microprocessors, sensors and programmable LEDs. Fashion tech can require skills in design, pattern-making, sewing, electronics, and maybe 3D printing. Besides the tech skills, making a good costume or accessory also requires knowledge of the intangibles of what makes a good costume. This book is a collaboration between two technologists and a veteran teacher, costumer, and choreographer. Regardless of whether you are coming at this from the theater costuming, sewing, or electronics side, the authors will help you get started with the other skills you need. More than just a book of projects (although it has those too), Practical Fashion Tech teaches why things are done a certain way to impart the authors? collective wealth of experience. Whether you need a book for a wearable tech class or you just want to get started making fantastic costumes and wearables on your own, Practical Fashion Tech will get you there." -- back cover
The new shop class : getting started with 3D printing, Arduino, and wearable tech by Joan C Horvath( )

9 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 354 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The New Shop Class connects the worlds of the maker and hacker with that of the scientist and engineer. If you are a parent or educator or a budding maker yourself, and you feel overwhelmed with all of the possible technologies, this book will get you started with clear discussions of what open source technologies like 3D printers, Arduinos, robots and wearable tech can really do in the right hands. Written by real "rocket scientist" Joan Horvath, author of Mastering 3D Printing, and 3D printing expert Rich Cameron (AKA whosawhatsis), The New Shop Class is a friendly, down-to-earth chat about how hands-on making things can lead to a science career. Get practical suggestions about how to use technologies like 3D printing, Arduino, and simple electronics Learn how to stay a step ahead of the young makers in your life and how to encourage them in maker activities Discover how engineers and scientists got their start, and how their mindsets mirror that of the maker
3D printing with MatterControl by Joan C Horvath( )

6 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 338 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 3D Printing With MatterControl, Joan Horvath and Rich Cameron, the team behind Mastering 3D Printing, explain step-by-step how to use the MatterControl program, which allows you to control many common types of 3D printers (including both cartesian and delta style machines). 3D Printing With MatterControl 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, 3D Printing with MatterControl will show you how to get the most out of your printer with the new standard for open source 3D printing software. While there are books available on 3D printers, and even a few on software to make models for printers, there are few good sources covering the software that actually controls these printers. MatterControl is emerging as the leading open source software for 3D printers, and 3D Printing With MatterControl covers this new standard in this brief book
Filmmaking for beginners by Joan C Horvath( Book )

2 editions published in 1974 in English and held by 312 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Discusses equipment, terminology, and techniques for amateur film makers
3D printed science projects by Joan C Horvath( )

6 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 193 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Learn physics, engineering, and geology concepts usually seen in high school and college in an easy, accessible style. This second volume addresses these topics for advanced science fair participants or those who just like reading about and understanding science. 3D Printed Science Project Volume 2 describes eight open-source 3D printable models, as well as creative activities using the resulting 3D printed pieces. The files are designed to print as easily as possible, and the authors give tips for printing them on open source printers. As 3D printers become more and more common and affordable, hobbyists, teachers, parents, and students stall out once they've printed some toys and a few household items. To get beyond this, most people benefit from a "starter set" of objects as a beginning point in their explorations, partially just to see what is possible. This book tells you the solid science stories that these models offer, and provides them in open-source repositories

Additive Manufacturing: Optimizing 3D Prints by Rich Cameron( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

3D printing is a complex additive process. Many things can go wrong, whether you're using a commercial or consumer-grade printer. This course reviews common 3D printer problems and highlights the settings that may help you get the best possible quality from your equipment, with a focus on printers that use filament. Learn how groups of settings interact with each other and reduce the trial and error often associated with learning how to "dial in" a 3D printer. Instructors Rich Cameron and Joan Horvath use the MatterControl slicing and control program as a baseline, but discuss other common programs that use these settings, including Cura and Slic3r
