Gear design

Hello there, I was wondering if you could help me: I need a simple program to design a basic gear, a pair of twin wheels. I need to set the number of cogs and the diameter of the wheels; this mechanism has to be as tight as possible. The idea is to print the wheels on paper and then cut a metal sheet accordingly; can you tell me a way to transfer the image directly on the metal? That would be of great help... Thanks.

DESIGN tutorials!

I've been looking around, and it seems like generally instructables users are not web/graphics designers. There needs to be a section for the design tutorials!!! Anyways when my schedule frees up in the future, I'll add some flash and dreamweaver tutorials... otherwise there is a major lacking of web DIY instructables! what you guys think? Dont you guys wanna learn how to DIY (design it yourself)? I am talkin about design here, not art.

PCB design?

Why do modern PCBs always use straight tracks and 45-degree diagonal tracks? I know it is good practice and design all my boards to this standard, but is there a reason behind it other than it looks visually appealing. It appears only relatively modern boards took this into account, I was looking at some 1970's electronics and quite a lot of them have rounded tracks of no definite thickness.

Design for reuse...

The "1st world" (that would be us) is infamous for its rampant and wasteful consumerism. Buy an electronic gadget with N times the power of the OLPC machine, then throw it away after two years (incidentally filling landfills with all sorts of questionable stuff.) Meanwhile, other parts of the world starve for technology.Do you think it would be possible to SLIGHTLY modify the design of 1st world consumer products to make it easier to reuse them (or parts of them) in devices conceptually similar to OLPC? I mean, consider the cell phone. Modern cell phones have cameras, flash card sockets, relatively high-res (but tiny) displays, relatively high-quality sound capability, low power consumption in standby mode, and radio based networking capabilities. It seems pretty close to an OLPC device to me (tell me an Apple iPhone wouldn't be an adequate replacement for an OLPC...)Why can't "we" convince a cell phone manufacturer to design the internals such that when the phones original life is over, it's guts can get a larger display and keyboard and new software, and become someone's computer or eReader. People are willing to donate their old phones to assorted worthy causes now; they might even be convinced to pay an extra $10 to purchase a phone that is MORE reusable. (or is it more expensive to do this sort of "refurbishment" than to build brand new machines?) Now that wireless headsets are common, it's not even necessary for a cellphone to retain a "phone-like" size and shape. Can I have a paperback sized combination cell phone and eBook reader that will have a second life as "just an eBook reader"?What would it take to make a cellphone reusable as the core of a general purpose computer?1) extend and standardize display interface to allow page-sized display.2) extend and standardize keypad interface to allow keyboard (?)3) internal software nearly completely replacible with a general purpose OS.4) inappropriate radio functions capable of being removed, disabled, or converted to more appropriate functions (ad-hoc wireless networking)Some of those seem like things manufacturers would be doing anyway, just to reduce their own costs. Creating a reusable cellphone core may be more a matter of documentation than anything else (and politics. Not that either is easy.)Next, what other electronic devices do you have that you're likely to be done with before they break? An MP3 player could use the same standardized display link and reprogramability as cell phones. Your LCD monitor could implement the other half (old cell phone plus old monitor = general purpose computer?) I don't think there's enough standardization in the desktop computers to reuse them; their complexity makes reuse too administratively complex, and they're probably too power-hungry anyway.The "maker" community already spends a fair amount of effort reusing "appliances" as general purpose compute engines; usually "improving" the product in its original application space, or getting cheap cycles from a product that failed and is being sold off cheap. Creating intentionally reusable electronics would feed that community some, but it isn't big enough to absorb ALL the discards of our quick-moving society. A lot could be funneled into putting technology where it couldn't afford to be before.(some quick Google use says:In the US, we throw away over 400,000 cell phones PER DAY linkIn Europe, 27% of mobile phone user buy a new phone every year link; only 5% of the old phones are recycled.Overall, less than 1% of cell phones are recycled. link; cell phone sales are expected to exceed 1 billion per year by 2009.)(I pick primarilly on cell phones because they seem SO CLOSE to being a general purpose computer, AND small enough to possibly incorporate into a larger "second life" product.)

Information on product design? Answered

Hello all!! I have something in mind that I want to build. I will try to market it and make money but my first point is to actually get it to work. It is a mechanical product, imagine it like a blender but twice the size. It will have motors, valves, wiring, and will need manufacturing. I have never designed something, so I was wondering whether there is a source that can help me with my product design. I am not looking for tips on how to sell my design, or how to make a minimalist interface, or make it beautiful. I am looking for help on purely mechanical design and tips for the product to work best. Some of the things i want to know are: 1. Which material should i use? Normal steel? Stainless? Galvanized? How thick a sheet metal? Plastic? Glass? 2. Which  material is easy to handle and cheap to manufacture? Which shapes can be made easily which shapes cannot. 3. What type of transparent material is cheapest and best? 4. What do i need to look out for in my product? Weight? Sharp edges? Hiding wires?  This is the type of information that I want. Practical things! Any information is appreciated!!! Point out any books, pdfs, slides, or sources please!  Thank you in advance, Chris

Introducing: Design Challenges!

Design Challenges will be in addition to our other contests. Here is what makes them different than our traditional contests and challenges: You do not create step-by-step Instructables for these contests. Create 3D designs using Fusion360, Tinkercad, or any program that allows you to make .STL files. Design Challenges can only be entered from the contest page. We will usually provide start files to get you started (this will be dependent on the contest and its theme). Our first one is the BOSEbuild Design Challenge. If you have questions specific to the BOSEbuild Challenge, the Speaker Cube, or creating your own custom designs, you can post those questions here. If you have questions about Design Challenges and what they are going to be like, post them here! *If you want to upload more than 1 STL file, upload your main design file in the "Add Design File" section and upload any supporting renders of the design, additional .stl files, or other relevant images to the "Add Images" section.*

OPEN DESIGN RESEARCH

ANSWER: opendesign@gmx.de Dear Sir or Madam, dear creative worker, dear developer and designer In consideration of growing interest in open development processes and their spreading, we are trying to get to the bottom of the »open design« phenomenon. In the course of our investigations we are very much interested in your opinion. The survey consists of a few questions related to hierarchy in open projects. At the end of our observation there will be a theoretical study, which all participants may receive a digital copy of, if so desired. (Just note that the final work will be written in German) First we would like you to answer eight questions according to a given scale. You are free to add a short comment to each answer. Finally there are two questions, which allow for a more detailed answer. 1. Does "Open Design" have a future? (No) 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 (Yes) Comment: 2. Is there a danger of losing individuality due to the openness of a project? (No) 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 (Yes) Comment: 3. Does the loss of individuality imply a decrease in quality? (No) 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 (Yes) Comment: 4. Which hierarchic structures exist in your project? In which relation are the numbers of initiators and participants? (Initiators) 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 (Participants) Comment: 5. Who has the power to decide which changes to implement? (Initiators) 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 (Participants) Comment: 6. Open processes may result in a vast variety of designs. What kind of rules & restrictions are set that may influence individual freedom in order to maintain a high level of quality? What is your ideal conception? (Many restrictions) 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 (Much freedom) Comment: 7. How much expertise is needed to participate in an "open design"- project? (Expert) 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 (Amateur) Comment: 8. Are there moments when it depresses you that open design projects cannot easily be closed again? What kind of moments are this and why do you still stick to open projects? (No) 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 (Yes) Comment: 9. How are complex assignments broken down to many individual tasks and how are these tasks distributed among the participants? Where are the limits of each competency? Comment: 10. To what extent do you understand yourself as the actual developer of a product, that you are working on together? Which kind of copyright protection is used? Comment: In case you would like to dig deeper in this topic, we also offer a more comprehensive questionnaire. Many thanks and kind Regards, Manuel Milde und Sebastian Piatza (Faculty of Design - University of Applied Sciences Dresden)

Design Changes on Instructables

As you've noticed, we've been making some design changes to Instructables.  We're trying to accomplish a number of things including making it easier to find content you're interested in, creating more compelling products for advertisers, and supporting and growing what we've already built.  Here, I'll share the details around some specific design changes. One of my big goals for 2010 is to increase our direct visitors.  A direct visitor might type our URL into their browser, click on a link in a newsletter, come to the site from one of their bookmarks, or search for a phrase that includes "Instructables".  Other types of visitors include searchers, who come to the site from phrases such as "sweet potato fries" but aren't specifically trying to reach Instructables.com, and visitors from blogs or news portals.  My thesis is that more and more brand advertisers will want to reach our true community, and not people who are just passing by.  A pretty good proxy for our true community is direct visitors, and we've already seen the savviest advertisers try to reach only that community by advertising exclusively on our homepage (the recent Apple campaigns, for example).  To grow our business and ensure that Instructables thrives, it's important that we have great opportunities for advertisers, and a stronger community means more great Instructables and more intelligent people seeing and commenting on your Instructables. To this end, we've been working to increase the likelihood that someone will go deeper into our content, and remember to come back in the future.  Said another way, we want that sweet potato fries Google search to introduce someone to Instructables, and then have them think, "wow this site is amazing, I'll bookmark it, sign up for the newsletter, come back, etc..."  Some of the most dramatic changes are on the homepage and channel homepages.   On the homepage, we've removed the intro text from the links to Instructables.  By making the homepage less cluttered with words, I was hoping to increase the number of people clicking on an Instructable.  Also, I felt that the beginning of the intro text didn't contribute much to my understanding of the Instructable, and often it was no more than a repetition of the title (and at worse a note about how it was someone's first...).  Removing text to increase engagement might seem counter-intuitive, but with too much going on, visitors sometimes just leave rather than decide what to click on.  So far, clicks from the homepage are flat or slightly up, so this change hasn't had a negative effect on deepening visits, and may over time move us in a positive direction.  On the channel homepages, we've drastically changed the layout to be more blog-like.  My theory here was to give people a format they were more familiar with from elsewhere on the web, and results have been dramatic.  The exit-rates (the percentage of visitors that leave Instructables from a particular page) on our channel homepages have been cut in half.  For example, the exit-rate on the home channel homepage has dropped from 12% to 4.5%.  This is really good!  To me, this indicates that on the channel homepages we're giving visitors more compelling content, and they are more likely to dig into that content. In support of our efforts to deepen visits, we've been doing similar smaller changes all over the site. Most of these are based on our traffic and click analysis, and if my theories are wrong, we change back or try something else.  One particular change that has generated concern is the removal of the Answers link from the header.  This has nothing to do with our support of Answers in general -- it's based on data.  That link was almost completely unused.  Coming again from the perspective of making a slightly cleaner look, we removed it.  As the link wasn't generating any clicks, traffic to Answers has been unaffected.  In fact, as we're highlighting specific answers on the channel homepages, traffic to the Answers section is actually up 7% since we removed the link:  from Feb. 1 - 18 answers did an average of 11.1 K pageviews per day; from Feb. 19 - 28 it's done 11.9 K pageviews per day.  Perhaps that's noise in the data, but removing the link certainly hasn't been the end of answers, and the trend since the change is positive. So, we do rearrange the furniture from time to time, but it's never without reason.  We're always trying to make Instructables better.  We've messed up in the past, and we'll surely mess up in the future; but I think this is good, because if we're not reaching and striving a little bit beyond our comfort zone, we're not learning and improving.
