The Maker's Field Guide — Book Release


Hi All,

It's been forever and a day since I've logged into my account here. I actually had pull up a lost email to regain access to my account here — whew!...

Anyway, I wanted to reach out to the BOTB community because I've just published my first book, called The Maker's Field Guide. This book is the accumulation of almost a decade of experience working on Senior Leadership positions on multiple in-house R&D teams / labs. I wanted to announce it here first, since I've credited the BOTB community as one of the main drivers that kickstarted my design career (check the book out for a feature on BOTB!). This is the book I wish I had over a decade ago, when I was using RTV molding & casting techniques (long before the days of 3D printing emoticon ) to make Batman movie props at my home garage in Houston, Texas!

Please check out the book website [sign in to see URL] for more details. The book is also available on Amazon, both as a printed book and Kindle eBook. To celebrate the book's debut, use the Promo code BOTB-20 at the checkout portal through the book website to receive 20% off all orders for the next 30 days only!

Book Expert:
Part how-to manual, part coffee table photo-book, part reference guide to be used literally“in the field” — the maker's field guide has been designed to be an essential tool in every makerspace, garage, office, or bookshelf of the beginning student, Start-up Entrepreneur, recreational hobbyist, and seasoned professional alike.

This is the first ever guide with in-depth coverage on not only all major state-of-the-art technologies like 3D printing, CNC Machining, Laser Cutting & Engraving, and Computer Aided Manufacturing, but also includes the more old-school or “manual” techniques of prototype making — such as proper use and safety of shop machinery like the band saw, lathe, drill press, table saw, and many more. Until now, these are at the kind of tips, Tricks, and methods you could only find by attending a top-tier design or engineering program, or by working many years in the R&D industry.
 
Access to over $3.5 Million dollars of ultra high-end, truly state-of-the-art machine equipment is explained in expert detail throughout these pages — showcased through hundreds of high-resolution, large-format images, with dozens of real-world practical project examples by world-class designers who have brought real products to successful market launch.
 
Available as both an E-Book, or as a high-quality, Heavyweight paper stock printed coffee table book made right here in the USA.
