3D Printing Quick Start Guide booklet
by jasonwebb, published
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.

<strong>Print the booklet using InDesign</strong> 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.

<strong>Print the booklet from PDF</strong> 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
