Holiday Gift Guide 2012: 3D Printing

When it comes to home 3D printing, most of us still haven’t taken the plunge. If you, or someone on your gift list, is still in the toe-dipping stage, maybe the smartest thing to do is to start at the stocking-stuffer level with a copy of the MAKE Ultimate Guide to 3D Printing. It’s the best deal going when it comes to getting oriented in the exploding consumer 3D-printing scene. Or, if you’ve already made up your mind to gift someone a 3D-printer, grab a copy for yourself to help guide that decision, then pass it along in the box!

Or, if you’re in a hurry (and it’s worth noting that lead times on 3D printers can be fairly long) our online guide, linked below, can get you started shopping right now. Within, you’ll find a tasty assortment of gifts for desktop manufacturers of all skill levels, from experienced pros to total n00bs, arranged in pricetag order from $30-$3,000. Here’s wishing you speedy shopping and a relaxing winter break!

    Just wanted to say your blog hasn’t been mobile-friendly at all lately, I haven’t been able to see any of the slideshow pictures in months.. iPhone 5, previously HTC sensation (Android). Just a friendly heads up.

    Might be just my opinion, but I don’t think anyone here would be opposed to having longer articles and fewer slideshows. I want to keep Make in my RSS feed, but it’s an uphill battle convincing myself.
