"I wish I read this book in the beginning of my 3D printing and blogging journey, because a lot of the open source software listed and described was tried by me in one or the other way. As my budget didn’t allow me to use paid versions of software, I spent a lot of time searching for appropriate solutions. That’s how I found OBS, GIMP, Inkscape, Blender, not to mention other 3D design and 3D printing-related software and communities."

Pearce, an academic engineer at MTU, explains how the open source movement advances in every sphere of activities, encourages to participate and share in order to save money and gain more in return.
