We're excited and proud to launch Thingiverse Apps. Learn More about what this means to you.
An informational booklet that can be printed and handed out to students and 3D-printer beginners to help them understand the basics of the 3D printing workflow and community.
The individual pages were designed in Photoshop, then put together into a booklet using InDesign.
I designed this booklet specifically for undergraduate Art students at my university, but using the source files you can easily modify the booklet to work for your workshop or institution.

The 3D printing workflow
Print the booklet using InDesign
I prefer to print these booklets as 2-up saddle stitch booklets using InDesign. Print double-sided to create a compact booklet that can be folded and stapled. Follow the instructions here for more: http://help.adobe.com/en_US/indesign/cs/using/WSa285fff53dea4f8617383751001ea8cb3f-704ba.html
Print the booklet from PDF
After designing/tweaking the booklet in InDesign, you may not want to go through the hassle of working with it to print additional copies. Export a PDF in InDesign, then follow these instructions to print a booklet: http://helpx.adobe.com/acrobat/kb/print-booklets-acrobat-reader.html
