Twittoons (Paperback, Manu Cornet) 5 stars

Cartoons drawn by a Twitter insider before, during, and after Musk’s acquisition.

The truth hurts (and this is painfully amusing)

5 stars

This is exactly what happened. I enjoyed seeing Manu’s cartoons when we worked at Twitter at the same time, and I’m glad he carried on documenting the end of the company after the layoffs.

Basics of 3D Printing with Josef Prusa (EBook, Prusa Research) 4 stars

This book will help you understand what kinds of 3D printing technologies are currently available …

A good overview and primer

4 stars

This is probably the best overall introduction to 3D printing methods, materials and terminology that I’ve found so far (and, to be honest, it has made me think about whether a Prusa printer would be a good thing for my workshop, which is obviously part of the point of the book). I found the descriptions of the different settings, and differences between material types, very useful. I think it could have gone slightly further in a few places, but overall, perfect for my needs and pretty quick to read and absorb.
