    I understand your point.However, I am simply disappointed by how little actual "help" this post offers, and how it really seems like a "look at my project" post, such as how 8 out of 18 steps are literally photos, when they could have put all the photos into one step.Of course, if "inspiring" is all that this post is meant to do, I believe it has succeeded, at least to some people. But seeing how this website is for Instructions (hence the name "Instructables") and not simply a photo uploading site, I believe this post is not very well-suited for the concept "instructions".People are clearly voting based on how impressive-looking this project is, rather than how much help it actually gives. And that is sad.

    Thank you! Do you have any critiques for it (Even as small as "it doesn't look realistic")?

    This project is amazing, but the big problem is:This is NOT a tutorial.This does NOT tell you in any way how to make your own papercraft car.This SHOWS you making it.As much as I like this project, I am disappointed by the fact that there are no instructions whatsoever in this post.In the most respectful way possible, this post is you simply showing off your project, not helping others make it or encouraging them to make their own.

    How to Make Your Own Papermodel Car

    Aw, that sounds nice.It's good to see that you care about your readers :)It would be better to have the whole file (why not the wheels though?), but I think it would also be interesting for people to add their own textures, since you did write about that on your post.And as a side note for anyone who's reading; You CAN save your Pepakura files, even on the free version! You just need CutePDF and GPL in order to export it as a PDF. (Further info: https://www.instructables.com/id/Pepakura-Convert-PDO-to-PDF-/)

    True, but people who are new to papercrafting probably wouldn't be able to know all that, and there aren't really that many people who would be able to create a nice-looking car with a 3D program here. I was just saying that including the 3D model would allow people to follow the instructables better, and probably get into papercrafting as well.

    Oh, I understand now.But, just saying from some experience with 3D modelling; It's not easy. At all. I don't think anybody would be willing to create their own wheel, then unfold it into a papercraft template, THEN assemble it.You do it your own way though, I'm just making suggestions X)Great model by the way, in the beginning I thought you would just get a pre-made papercraft template then make it, but you actually taught us how to create it from scratch! I actually voted for your design in the Paper Challenge; I hope you win!

    Ha ha ha, I know; 3D modelling (and converting that to papercraft) is so difficult.Unfortunately, I never CREATED any templates by myself; I tried working on a slightly advanced project, but failed because there were way too many vertices and the textures went wonky. (I do think it's actually make-able, but the template is so cut-up that it would take ages to figure out how to put them together.)I did make some papercrafts though, like an Iron Man Mark 7, Rubik's cube, etc. (I read up the Rubik's cube on here on Instructables, although it turns out I didn't really need it, since there's nothing really technical about it.) You can see some photos here, if you'd like X)https://cafe.naver.com/papermodeler/111400https://cafe.naver.com/papermodeler/112357https://cafe.naver.com/papermodeler/1...

    Sigh.. Did you really not include the finished papercraft file?By doing that, you effectively stopped 99% of viewers from trying the project for themselves.3D modeling is HARD work, not to mention that you need the full version of a paid software to SAVE your files!I know that papercraft files are your own work, and are sometimes even sold for money, but as a person who has done papercrafting for 6+ years, I was disappointed to see that you shared nothing that would actually get us making papercrafts. This project seems too "difficult" for normal papercrafters.

    Using Audacity to remove noise works just as well, in my opinion X)It gets rid of so much sound, it's like the sound is turned off when you stop speaking.

    Full Size RC Car

    Absolutely brilliant! THE best project I ever saw on Instructables, period.And as the other guy already said, it would be good to allow comments on Youtube.There may be some dumb people saying that it's "fake", but add a link to this instructable and other people will shut down those kinds of people for you!

    Adding a link to this instructables page should be more than enough to shut them down. If they look at this and still think it's fake, they're probably 11 years old and don't deserve to be heard anyways.

    How to Dry a Cell Phone

    Upvoted. People think that they can get the same result as a skilled technician by spinning their phone dry? Seriously? It's hilarious that this instructable doesn't even MENTION the option of taking it to a professional that actually KNOWS what they're doing.Spinning a phone doesn't even get rid of most of the moisture inside it. Geeze. Did this guy even do his research, or did he just calculate the spinning speed and say, "well, that should be enough to propel the water out of it!" and call it a day?

    Mr Wiggly, the Mouse Jiggler

    I'm sorry, but to be perfectly honest, I think this method (fan) is a waste of electricity and resources. And about the noise: How much does it make? Is it completely silent, or is it a buzz that can irritate some people?

    In your specific case, I guess your solution is perfect! ..But in most people's cases, just installing a software that prevents it from sleeping would be much better :P

  • How to Make a Waterproof Minecraft Wallet From Duct Tape

    I HIGHLY recommend taking photos in better lighting on a neater surface, such as a tabletop. Taking photos in dark lighting makes it very shakey, and taking it on a dirty surface just makes the object look messy and not neat. People will regard your submission as bad, no matter how much effort or time you spent on it.Also try making the explanations more detailed.

    How to Dry a Cell Phone

    To UdonYes, I actually totally agree with your comment, using rice really isn't the best way. The best way is to immediately take the phone to a professional to get it fixed.However, if you do not have a professional or a handy bag of silica-gel at hand, using rice is still not a very bad idea. Leaving it alone can and will make it worse, as the water inside the phone will stay in one place and damage the circuits inside. Rice does help in getting rid of some of the moisture inside.Also, as a Korean living in Korea and cooking rice to eat all the time, I can confirm that rice is not dusty at all. Perhaps some types of rice, but most types of rice (at least in Korea) are not dusty enough to come close to damaging electronics. Leaving a phone out in the open for a couple hours will do mor...

    Great comment. All that the Leo guy did was to copy+paste an article from the internet, which wasn't a very good source.. I can find an article that says rice does work and copy+paste it.
