Summary "Making it uses contemporary design as a vehicle to describe over 90 production techniques, both established and cutting-edge, so that the mysteries of the processes are revealed in an accessible way." "This is the first book to approach the subject from a designer's point of view. The author has grouped the processes according to the shapes and physical dimensions of the finished product. Each process is introduced and described, and information boxes offer guidance on suitable production volumes, the costs involved, the speed of production, relevant materials and more."--BOOK JACKET
