    How do I explain this book It's just a compendium of the different ways to make things Lathing in the cut from block section blown film continuous manufacturing thermoforming and on It organizes techniues by high level category introduced many methods I had never used or seen in industry and provides pros and cons for each Readable for a layperson and the kind of book I love to memorize as it opens up a whole new world of wonder We have grown too far from knowing how things work This book will help me reconnect with the ways we build our modern world Thanks to the author for organizing so much so well

    I was in dire need of a holistic book that covers all the materials right from its production process to its applications so that you could use appropriate materials for the problem statement Thumbs up Lefteri

    We take for granted how stuff are made This book gives us a really brief view of what and how things can be made with our current technology

    Consider this a reference book It's not readable from front to back as it has no narrative Not really what I was expecting It breaks down families of manufacturing processes and within those families has a 2 3 page overview of the process listing pros cons uses compatible materials constraints types of products made with it speed complexity scalability tolerances unit volume and interestingly wastesustainability The drawings and diagrams are good; they have a nice hand drawn feel to them and are not too stiff like many unreadable blueprints and 3 views are Pictures are useful and the book makes good use of color and font to communicate meaning If you read it back to front you should be able to look at any object commercial or industrial civilian or military and have a pretty good idea of what type of process was used to make it Or have several ideas of options that the designer could have used It mentions cost ualitatively I find this particularly odd since some of these processes can be done in your garage or back yard for cheap and others would probably cost millions to setup and are only available to massive industrial manufacturers Cost is ALWAYS a consideration It seemed to be glossed over in this book If you were teaching a class or lecture on the theoretical number of ways to produce a certain part or geometry then this book would be an asset If you had a college class where the professor said you have to design this factory from the ground up to make these types of products what machinesprocesses would you select Then this book would be useful But that is a very limited application For personal or small businesses it is merely informative of many processes that you will never be able to afford I just want to get across that for MOST people this will only be a reference book That point doesn't seem to be well communicated anywhere else that I've seen

    This book was a nice designerly overview of production techniues Unfortunately the second edition came out just after I bought it so I couldn't enjoy its comparisons by environmental criteria I found that it gives great suggestions about the potential applications of each approach but the pros and cons didn't seem to be comparable in a systematic way This book is great for the design researcher looking to think about new techniues or find an approach that they might follow up on but not for pursuing them

    Thought it was a good overview of the various manufacturing processes particularly from a design perspective The only thing is that since it was released in 2007 and being that it's 8 years old there are a number of newer techniues such as 3D printing that were not in the book Would be nice to see an updated version

    Good reference for many types of industrial fabrication What the heck is pulltrusion anyway Shows examples of how its done applicable materials pros and cons as well as reference companies and websites

  9. Matt says:

    Excellent reference book for some basic information on manufacturing

  10. David Brown says:

    I ended up skim reading this as it is a very broad overview of the manufacturing processes available
