Take a tour of Instructables!

There's so much cool stuff here, I thought people (new and old) might enjoy a guided tour.

Instructables is a web-based documentation platform where passionate people share what they do and how they do it, and learn from and collaborate with others. These awesome people make it all happen. The seeds of Instructables germinated at the MIT Media Lab as the future founders of Squid Labs built places to share their projects and help others; more history is here.

Instructables is the combination of a number of things. First, there are the Instructables themselves. These are step-by-step descriptions of things people want to share. They are educational, inspirational, and often replicable.

The Dachshund Wheel chair is my favorite. A passionate user shared something close to his heart, and has had a positive impact on many lives.

There's the whimsical: Magnetic Acrylic Rubik's Cube. And, of course, the whimsical inspired by the whimsical: Magnetic Rubik's Dice Cube. And, the plain ridiculous: How to Get a Free Yacht and its complete saga.

A cornerstone of what makes Instructables great is the comments. People ask questions, give praise, or offer improvements; this sets up a conversation between the project author and the community. Check out this cookie recipe where the author responds to a question about substitutions for someone who wants cookies now.

Many of the best Instructables have won one of our contests: Show Your Heart Valentine's Day Contest, Holiday Homemade Gifts contest, Take Thanksgiving to the Next Level contest, Halloween Project contest, and The Magnet Challenge.

Instructables has a lively forum for opinion and discussion. Really smart and talented people hang out here. Have a look at a forum topic on water tunnel testing complete with Reynold's number equations.

Finally, what really makes Instructables great is the community surrounding it. These are passionate people that want to share what they did and how they did it. In recognition of this, Instructables won the 2006 Wired Rave Award for industrial design. Instructables gave power to the individuals so they could positively impact the world. Also, check out some of the news articles about Instructables.

Please help me to write down the code on arduino for the 8x8x8 led cube.

I am so excited to get started I bought a C02 Laser and here I am learning how to use it as well as all the other very cool things

Thank you Thank you :) wonderful

It will put you on until you start designing your own.

BTW, very useful resource to start of vaguely box-shaped projects:

I was very fortunate to receive a Premium membership as a gift, and on behalf of all my students thank you. I am so excited to be part of this awesome community :)

I've never been a very 'arty' person but I have recently become involved in an after school club for young children. I have great ideas but not the first clue about how to achieve them so Instructables has already answered some of those questions, like, how to use gelatine to make a mould. Great stuff! I'm sure I'll be on here a lot and, who knows I might produce an Instructables myself!

Hey everyone!

I was really surprised after I asked a question to your team, and I received a Premium membership as a gift?! Wow, that is wonderful. I've been looking up to instructables for years. I am really happy to be part of this community.

Use it wisely - post an instructable, take a class...

This website is very cool. I enjoy it!

<3 Instructables!! (helped me understand the last step to making a ninja star! YEY!!)

1) Where is this so-called 'Guided Tour'? 2) What exactly IS the purpose of this Comment section?? No matter what question/ feedback I've seen posted, it seems the answer is 'HERE is not the appropriate place to ask/ say that' (BTW, these sometimes not-so-nice replies are all from fellow Pro users, NOT staffers OR Instructables moderators)

1) The article above your comment 2) the reason we say this is not the right place is that if you post a forum topic you will get the attention of the staff (and we aren't trying to be mean we are just trying to help solve their problem)

Can I use these ideas freely or do I have to ask the owner of the idea?

Check the licence of the project, but the default licence means you can use them freely, as long as you do not benefit commercially.

(Sorry it took so long for you to get a reply.)

The vast majority of projects shared here are open source.

You might try the Kickstarter forums?

hi what is keyword
It's a word that helps other people to find what they are searching for - like tags.
Kiteman4 years ago
For any project, there's a "download" button just below the title.
how do you upload a profile picture
Go to your "You" page, and look to the left of the page for the words "Change Image(s)".

Click that, and you're away.
I wish the categories were more broken down. For example if I'm looking for tips on pro e/creo where do I go. If there was a cad category I would go into that and have all other cad platforms under it. Maybe searching would be a good method I don't know.
You can use the searches, but if I have a specific problem with a specific piece of software, the first thing do is look for dedicated help pages or forums.

If that doesn't work (and, so far, it has), I would contact the software publisher directly, and at the same time put a question in the Answers section here.

I made a wood fired oven last year and took pics along the way. Would that be a good topic or has someone already done it? Made it for under $200.00.
There's a saying...
You should share it. Even if it's been "done" before, I bet no one has made it exact the way you did.

Hey, this is just amazing and incredible stuff. I plan to use it to get ideas and as a resource for stuff that i plan to create.
I hope to use Instructables as a resource of new and creative ideas. I also hope to provide some of my own projects that might be of interest to the community.
Cool - what are you planning on posting?
I'm not sure. I plan on working on a project with my grandson. He's interested in robotics so that might be the direction we go. It will probably be designed around an Arduino Nano.
There are plenty of resources here to work with.
You may be interested in Instructable's resources for teachers.
Thank you. I'll be sure to check it out. We need all the help we can get to keep our instruction current and interesting.

Just want to know if filling a wooden rain barrel with water will keep it from leaking?An old wine barrel.
If the barrel dried down too far the staves will have changed their shape and will have to be reshaped ( planed ) The hoops will need retightening and small imperfections between staves and between staves and the ends are usually patched with reeds Then the barrel has to be kept wet with sacking on the outside when not full of water or the same problem returns !
"Depends" is the answer. If it has dried out too much no amount of soaking will help. If it is just seepage when first filled then the wood should expand and close the gaps. Wish I could help more but going on my memory from the wood barrels at the farm when I was a kid.

I'm new to instructables, and I have some followers. So, what about followers? Do followers get automatic e-mails when someone posts a comment about the instructable, or when I reply to a comment? What about forums? Is there a handy list of forums on here someplace? And finally, for the time being, why isn't the word "instructables" in the text spell checker dictionary? :-)
When you post a new project, or start a new forum topic, they'll get an automated alert so they can check it out.

As for forums, click the "Community" tab at the top of the page - it's obvious from there.

You're welcome!

Hi BillieJoe,
Try here.
I am a Royal Ranger Boys Leader, always looking for age appropriate projects for boys ages 7-14 years old.

The Royal Ranger program is a mentoring program with an emphasis on building a solid relationship with God, and followed by adventures in HIS great outdoors.

I am looking for excellent ideas/projects to be used while hiking and camping. Projects that are old school rustic, simple, primitive and inxpensive are most welcomed. I personally enjoy projects like "home-made wood and alcohol stoves."

I welcome your ideas. Think back to your youth and help me come up with cool ideas to teach my boys an "unplugged" life outdoors.

Many thanks and God Bless.

Faith Walker
AT Thru-Hiker
We have an entire "Outdoors" section you will probably enjoy browsing, though I ought to warn you; we are a largely rationalist / secular bunch here, so very few projects are influenced by any deity.

(If you've got the brass for it, we do occasionally have some rather, er, robust discussions of a theological nature. Be prepared to be subject to quite knowledgable/enthusiastic cross-examination.)

Lemon Juice & Salt! Lemon Juice & Salt!! What a Revelation!! I am new to instructables, finding you by chance or determination, am certainly happy I did! We were having a terrible time finding a solution to a mishap of rust on a full load of white wash. Every site we scanned indicated there was no real chance at saving our clothing, which was rather heartbreaking as to some of the items in it. Then you appeared on our screen!! What an amazing discovery!! Never before have I seen such an easy solution to such a difficult problem. My family & I thank you, tip our hats to the originator of the cure, & may all those with rust on their clothing - soak them in thick, salty, lemon juice, & bake them nicely in the hot sun for an hour or so, to see the miracle appear!

Hello, I'm new here, but I hope to work with my ideas and exchange information with all the "experts" who are part of the Instructables!
Humans have a basic need to know stuff. That's how we made fire work for us. Through fire we became the apex predator. What we did not know all along was that the very thing that seperated us from the other animals was also the very thing that was slowly detroying the planet by means of Carbon Dioxide and Carbon monoxide emmissions. Evolution had a price tag ...

By sharing knowledge with others, this collaboration can only be a good thing for mankind - you guys are great !

Hi, I am new here and am wondering if anyone knows where one can get rid of tons and tons of books from 1800's on up - we are clearing up the family home and have so much stuff we are overwhelmed. Does anyone have any advice other than estate sale and/or auction?
there is a site call paperbackbookswap.com you can list them for other books and find people on the site who might like to recieve some of your books privately also you can donate them to orgs like the vets or handycapped i would be willing to help you if you would like to send some of your books .if you would let me know what kind of books they r please contact me at drama_3ueen@yahoo.com
Thanks for your reply - I will get back to you at some point - with this cleaning out this homestead, I and my siblings are really overwhelmed. We have IAABO artifacts (our dad was a phys ed teacher, referee (college and highschool), school athletic director) A lot of accumulation of paper from the 30's and 40's - (historical stuff); we also have old toys, old magazines, costume jewelry, pepsi and coke artifacts, old trunks, geez I could go on and on. Thanks to everybody for their input
I collect coke anything so don't forget me...Thanks
hai iam swamy iam writing books but your books are too good
hai iam swamy iam writing books but your books are too good
Seriously, have a bookseller look them over. Lots of people make a living selling books on Amazon and would be interested. If you have unusual old books I think it would be easy to find buyers for them.
Books are tricky because you may have one or two "valuable" books hidden among them. Ask a specialist antiquarien book dealer to come in and appraise your books and if he/she wants them, make you an offer. Please bear in mind that he is looking for that "valuable" one and not tell you if something special is amongst them. Sell on Ebay as a collection with approx numbers and range of subject matter. Don't forget any significant authors or dates. Remember: "one man's trash is another man's treasure". I would love to go through them myself and sort out (junk) from (other). That could determine the next step. I hope I've given you some , hopefully, fresh ideas. Good Luck
Thanks for your reply - it is much appreciated that you took the time to give me some advice - Happy New Year

Hello Everyone,

I'm an old-timer. Been working in computers since I was a little child. You could say I was born about the same time as the original computer, (ENIAC)
I think was the name. I worked as a Systems Engineer for IBM for over 30 years, but most my background was programming business application for large systems. I only really got into PC's since retirement.

I've working on a project for my adopted son's (8-year old) wii. Been trying to get it to load games via a USB drive. But that's for another thread!

Anyway, Hello and I;m glad to be here.

hey can anyone tell me how to change a dc motor to ac or the other way round cause i wanna built a wind genorator turbine thingy or if i could salvage one from somewhere else as im a porper living in a field
You can't change the motor but, can use it for a wind generator. You will need several other parts to complete the system. There are two types of wind machines - horizontal & vertical. Also will need to decide what voltage of DC for the batteries storage for power, an inverter - converting DC to AC, disconnect to cut off the power for maintenance, power box for circuits.

Kiteman suer698 years ago
Patches are virtual badges.  You can win them when you win a contest, or if your projects get featured in the newsletter.

If you are a Pro member, you also get a ration of patches you can send to anybody you like (including non-pros like yourself), for any reason you like.

have a look at my profile to see examples of patches (you have to scroll down a little) - if you hover the cursor over each patch, you will see a brief message that came with the patch.
you are weird with your fancy science talk
fancy science talk is sexy

I live in an aparment in a suburb area. I have an old analog TV. I bought a converter box  using a coupon of $40 to work for the old TV. The TV broadcasting towers are about 80 miles from the apartment complex. The apartment would not let me install outdoor antena.

Since I want to use TV to watch news on local channels availbale over the air, I have no need to pay to cable or a dish.

Is there any most powerful indoor antena that could get signals from 80 miles into my apartment? I  could connect it to coverter box to work on the old TV.

Any ideas please? Bought several indoor antenas from Walmart and Radio Shack and none would get signals. The aparment is one story and has no tall buildings at all aournd the complex.

caseyv joedow8 years ago
I spent alot of time on the net trying to find the aswer to this one and I think that basically it is..NO.  It depends on  the direction of the towers and if they are VHF UHF or both.  You can find both positive and negative reviews on any antena.  And 80 miles is a LONG way for reception, even with an outdoor antena.  Good luck.  If you find an answer, let us all know.

Hello everyone! Great forum. My oldest son and I have debated a question for over two years now, and out of these debates we've come up with some very interesting facts. First, I have a question for everyone, then I think because of the extensiveness of this subject I'm going to set up a website or a separate blog site so I can keep track of any questions you all may have. Anyhow, here's my question: How would YOU like to live in a debt free, all Green city? Debt free meaning that you or your family have NO mortgage payments, no credit card payments, no power bill, no water bill, the city is powered by solar, wind, ect. The city enjoys it's own all natural food supply and is supplied with fresh well water, each residence has a composting toilet, ect. Basically, the city would be clean and debt free, every citizen and the city itself? Give me your comments at: djpropertymanagement@bigstring.com put in subject box GREEN CITY
