FR : Le projet "Basic lamp" est né d'une idée simple : Concevoir une lampe à poser ayant le moindre impact sur l'environnement. La structure globale de la lampe est composée de papier, un matériau fabuleux lorsque il est géré de manière durable. Malgré une apparence basique sa structure interne complexe lui procure robustesse, stabilité et durabilité. Afin de supprimer, les coûts énergétiques, liés à la fabrication et aux transports, le luminaire est imprimable "à la maison", sur 5 feuilles de papier. Il offre ainsi un large panel de possibilités et de personnalisation.

In order to be publishable an instructable needs:


- Multiple steps showing how you made your project

- Written instructions in each step

- Your own original images

There's a great guide here on how to format Instructables and what we look for when looking to feature content as well. But the basics are those three things above. Often users will use screen shots from their videos as the step photos. Please let us know if you have any other questions. :)
