    This turned out looking really cool! Very nice looking prop gun!

    If you wanted to, it would be cool to see some more info on the build process--maybe a written step or two. I bet some people would also love it if you shared your print files! ;)

    Yeah, no worries!

    You can explore the site and see what kind of documentation you like from other authors, and then just imitate their style. That's how I learned when I started sharing my projects here years ago.

    When you have a video of your project, sometimes it works well to just grab a few key still images from it to share, which can be very helpful. A lot of visitors are on mobile so doing video + some written steps can be a nice gesture.

    If you want to get your instructable featured, here's a guide that outlines some of the elements required for that. Worth a look if you're interested: https://www.instructables.com/community/Featuring-Checklist/

    Cheers!
