Making a mold.

I am trying to make a fascia panel for a car. In order to do that I need to make a cast of one of the voids in a panel, from a vehicle console, since it can't be measured easily. I want to make the cast so that I can then make an accurate template from which I can make the panel I need. I am looking for a material that is non-destructive to the plastic panel that contains the void. That will create a rigid solid replica of the void. I know nothing about making molds and casts. Thanks in advance.

I know that in many countries, switchblades are not legal.  However, here in Austria, switchblades are legal to own and even hold in public. I apologise for my language.  I speak German and Spanish.  However, I speak some English, but I learned it later in life.  I read English better than I write.

Making a Jukebox

Recently I started buying the CD;s from the artists that I liked from dowloading (U know, show some support etc). But they're dusting away in the closet since I aint got a nice CD player to play them on (except my laptop, but the music's already on there...) I've set my brain on a jukebox-style CD-player, which for the design part wont be a problem since I study that, but I want to be able to select a CD and it will automatically pick that CD and play it. But I have absolutely NO idea how Im going to make that happen. So if anyone's interested in brainstorming about making a jukebox from scratch together I'd be really thankful. Anyways, gone stick my nose in car radio's that store multiple CD's... Keep you posted!

Gift Making

My skills include: Sculpting with multiple mediums, Including wood, metal and clays, basic electronic circuitry, and of course LASERS! I would love to make something for someone that is new to them or something that that individual want to discover more about. I'd be willing to make any size gift package for someone. I'd be willing to receive a smaller or larger size gift package from someone than the one I make for someone else. The prior statement would be TRUE! What I like: Anything that was caused or created with an imagination. What I don't like: Step by step copy cats that do not add their own personal touch to something. I absolutely can't have: Anything that a passion was not put into. Type of thing I'd love to receive: Well I have to say that a basic Arduino set up is something that still evades my knowledge base. I would be willing to ship to an address outside of my country. In fact I would find it to be awesome! And as a last note I was born on May 28th 1986 in Cleveland, Ohio. Therefore I am currently but only 24 years of age.

adaptive making

Alright, fellow Instructablers, I need help. I'm not usually a forum-poster; I like lurking. But I'm getting a little desperate. About a month ago, I was in a bit of a car accident. The airbags went off as I was trying to turn away from the telephone pole, and so my right wrist was in front of the steering wheel when the bags went off. This means that my right wrist (yes, I'm right handed) is still recovering, with the current diagnosis of "soft tissue injury with a sprain on top." I'm going to see a hand specialist, but in the mean time, it's quite the wrist brace. Though I can use my fingers, I can't do much without pain/stiffness/etc. So here's the problem that I'm posing to you: what can I make? I'm going stir-crazy. I knit, I woodwork, I play with wire and jewelry making, I draw, I take things apart... I'm willing to learn any new medium and play with any new toys. But I can't use my wrist. So, what adaptive techniques or simple projects or mediums do you suggest until I'm back to full powers? TL;DR: Can't use my wrist, but want to keep making things. Ideas?

How to make a book

To help its clients understand everything that goes into making a book, Funnel, Inc. put together this awesome infographic showing the whole process. It's all about educating the client, but this is a great glimpse even for consumers who just get the finished book and don't have any idea where it comes from or how it is made. via Core77

Make it Real Finalists

After much heated deliberation (and crowding around Carley's computer), the finalists for the Make it Real Challenge are now live! With over 1,100 entries, it was extremely difficult narrowing it down to just 50. It took us most of the day, but we managed to cut the list down to size. Of course, there were a number of great projects that just missed the cut. With so much on the line, we did not make this decision lightly. We thank everyone who entered. We would also like to congratulate everyone who made the cut and were selected as finalists!

Let's get making!

(THE FILTERS WOULDN'T LET ME THROUGH!!)Well, summer is almost here, and that means 2 months (in my case) of pure FREEEEDOM!!!!And what better way to spend the summer than catching up on a year and a half of making?Some things have happened back here, so I don't have as much freedom as I'd like. My grandfather is staying with us, so I don't have as much free time since I have to take care of him. Anyway, here's my checklist of things to make. If I make something, I will cross it out. My goal is to at least make 7 of these:Assassin's Creed Hidden bladeLearn to use BlenderMake an traditional animationLight TabletScreenprintingCardboard avatarPaper gunsTile pictureDragon EggMIB costumesGood Samaritan gun from HellboyLightsaberSun JarLED cubeE-bolaAnimatronic HandBike Lights* What about you guys?
