Open-source Lab How to Build your Own Hardware and Reduce Research Costs By Pearce, Joshua (Book – 2013)
You will like this book if you are starting out with Arduino controllers, 3D printers and the related software. But the book is only 250 pages, and cannot possibly cover those topics so it is mostly introductory cookbook projects, with some diagrams and photos. The book is intended for scientists, to help them reduce the cost of lab equipment. However, they should not be spending all their time engineering their lab equipment. Hobbyists will enjoy the book. Hardcover.
