- Libraries & Maker Culture is a resource guide created and maintained by Sharona Ginsberg, the Learning Technologies Librarian at SUNY Oswego. While it offers a number of resources concerning the basics of 3D printing, it is particularly useful for its list of library-based Makerspaces. This is a great way to see how others are implementing this still emerging technology.
- Tales of a 3D Printer is a blog produced by the Maker Club at the Black Pine Circle School, a private K-8 school in the California Bay Area. Many of the posts on the site are written by the middle school students themselves, and they do a wonderful job of walking the reader through their work. The excitement and sense of discovery on display here is really inspiring.
- Fababaloo, started in 2007 by Kerry Stevenson, publishes daily articles with up-to-date information about the field of 3D printing. Recent articles, such an interview with MakerBot CEO Jonathan Jaglom and a commentary on the prospect of 3D printing with concrete, demonstrate the wide range of approaches covered. Their 3D printer buying guide is also a very handy resource.
- Engineering.com’s A Brief History of 3D Printing infographic provides a quick and easy overview of this new technology—that began in 1984!
