With Instructables you can share what you make with the world, and tap into an ever-growing community of creative experts.
I am assuming we can't use anything that falls under the Intellectual Property Protection? So for example WALL-E is out of the question?
Thanks for the update!
Welcome to Laser Cutting
Like I already wrote via pm, I am going to join you. Let us hope that more are willing to join. I would love to meet some more Northern German makers. I am also willing to help improve the documentation of the projects and 3D print or laser cut stuff.

Maybe you have entered the contest multiple times in the past. I got repeating e-mails and messages as well (though not more than two per contest)...
I absolutely love it! Any chance the instructables one could be a prize in a contest?
Not that great for international members, though...
Is the option gone? Every time I've won in a contest that had to do with cooking I was able to choose.
Another time contest, please and one that has to do with cleaning. Those have obviously nothing to do with my current projects ;-)
Wow, I just had a look at your instructables and you are incredibly talented.
Thanks, I didn't realise that the download link stopped working I reuploaded it to step 1. Have fun!
Setup and Print
Thank you! Go ahead and make one, it is not that difficult.
Thanks a lot, I am glad you liked it!
Thanks a lot for the compliment!

Awesome! I was just looking how to make gears in Fusion360. Thanks a lot! The design is great. I am not a big fan of the burn marks from the laser cutter, but otherwise I think it is perfect.
Your pictures are amazing!
I am sorry, I don't know. I printed them at home and sized them in Word, as far as I remember,
Please check out "Step 5: Code"

I wouldn't worry about it. I have entered contests in the very last minute quite a few times and always made it to the finalists. Rather spend your on finishing it properly.
That is a great idea! I am not sure whether I will find the time to enter, but winning a mystery prize in the gifts contest sounds awesome.
I doubt it, since the ones I know use a different mechanism
Thanks a lot, I got mine. It is placed on a bench I made last week as a gift for my Mum.
that is really wierd. I never had to pay any money to FedEx employees. My experience with them has always been great.
Another thing I noticed is that spam comments remain in the user profile, even though they were deleted from the Instructable. Also I noticed that it says that I was a runner up in the Wood Working contest (https://www.instructables.com/contest/woodworking/). I don't think I was. I haven't checked whether everything else is right. I can't figure out what the contest are sorted by it is definitely not date, nor value of the prize. Can we please, please get the old contest patches back?
I don't mind they new layout. I would prefer it though if it would be more about the Instructables somebody has posted. Would it be possible to have the button say e.g. "All 57 Instructables" and maybe get a second line so that 10 Instructables are showing? What I really don't like are the new contest win icons. Can we please, please, please get the old ones back?
Thanks a lot!

Has the Circuits Contest replaced the Arduino Contest?
Does that means that the Circuits Contest has replaced the Arduino Contest?
I think this happens when you open the draft with your cell phone
Looks great! Thanks for posting pictures!
Sci-Fi could be something for you. You could build a plane looking like one from a movie. The Remix contest may also be interesting. Maybe the "Bag Contest" allows making things from bags.
Getting Started with Electronics
Thank you! I would love to see a picture, should you make it. Starting November 21st a "Remix Contest" is going to take place. Maybe you can enter it.
I agree the Gunapult (or rubber band guns) would also be great to bring. Maybe you can make litte robot targets.
I love the colours! Great job!
Thank you, I am glad you liked it!
Thank you! Keep them coming :-)
I think it would be tricky. Please tell me, should you find a way.

Laser Cutting Class
Thank you for giving me the perfect prize!
There are ways to get a premium membership without having to pay for it. E.g. posting a featured instructable or winning in a contest. I think the classes are awesome and worth putting in a little bit of effort, or should you be too lazy, money.
Thank you, yes I did. I would love to see a picture, should you build something similar.
Good luck then! Looking forward to what you have planned.
The blue stuff is airbrush stencil tape, which I cut with my plotter. I designed the stencil in inkscape, but wasn't quite happy with it. That's why it consists of two parts. I am sure that a box cutter knife will work just as well since it doesn't have to look perfect. Afterwards I used transfer tape to apply the stencil to the bat. I hope that helps, feel free to ask should you want to know more
Thanks, I bought it on ebay from China
Thanks! Take a look at step 4. I made stencils

I don’t think that Instructables is rewarding unoriginality; I think they are rewarding well documented projects, especially considering the imagery. Documenting something that is original and new is the cherry on top. As someone who has won quite a few contests, I would say that most of my projects are original and haven’t been done before. There are a few exceptions like for example my Puzzle Alarm Clock, but I still think that is worthy of an instructable. Designing the electronics and programming took nearly a week and somebody who has no clue about either is now able to build their own version. I think a huge factor in winning is having a good title image. I very often take 50+ images until I am happy with it, trying out different backdrops and lightning conditions.

I think a huge factor in winning is having a good title image. I very often take 50+ images until I am happy with it, trying out different backdrops and lightning conditions. Since nowadays everybody who becomes a finalist also wins a prize (which I think is a good thing) means that getting attention from your audience is more important than ever. If you think that a project is not getting the attention it deserves, get proactive and post it for example on Facebook, Instagram or send it to blog that might be interested and has featured your stuff before. We had the discussion about “stealing” projects quite a few times before and I have always been told that as long as the text and the pictures are original there is no problem. I don’t quite agree with that since I think that credit should always be given, but that’s maybe just because of how I have been raised. In my opinion documenting something you’re building for the first time is way harder than just repeating what somebody else has done. On the other hand if you are passionate about a project and can’t wait to share it with the community, I am sure that you will find a way to get around that and like I said it in the beginning it is what sets you apart. Like the others said, take a look at the projects that have won and learn from them. There may be times when you don’t agree with the judges decision, but as long as you love what you’ve made, it shouldn’t really matter. I use contest as a motivation to start making or to finish stuff I have sometimes though of years ago. Believe me in that case finishing the instructable and hitting “publish” is the best feeling ever.
Thanks a lot for posting the picture. It turned out amazing! The fabric is perfect!
Thank you! Sorry, I don't. I rather build new stuff than repeating what I have done
Yes, I designed it, but made it look like the movie prop. I think doing it privately would be ok, but my 3D printer is basically running around the clock for new projects.
Sadly no, since I am afraid to run into legal trouble.
