is instructables free?

is it?

YOU CAN UPLOAD FOR FREE, BUT INSTRUCTABLES GETS THE CASH WHEN YOU DOWNLOAD....SCAM, RIGHT?
If you want to get technical about it, there is no such thing as a free lunch.

However, you can read and write Instructables, Answers, and forum topics without paying any money to anyone.
you forgot about rating, favoriting
yes it is free unless you want to become pro which costs money
