Lately, when downloading a custom PDF everything is included no matter what I un-check.  Not sure if it's my computer, happened at work and now at home.

Custom Furniture Concept

Instead of buying a chair that was made in a factory, get the file printed up at your local fab shop. Check out this video that was presented by Bruce Sterling last night in Italy.Yes, the voices aren't the greatest.

Your Custom Xbox Here (Include Pictures Or A Description)

This forum is to describe your Xbox (preferably if you have changed it in some way from its original state). You can either post a picture, a movie, a detailed description of what you did or how it looks. You can also give a link to your instructable if it is about moding an Xbox or Xbox 360.

Airsoft Mortar

My homemade marble cannon the MC-200 has, and can be repurposed to fire hundreds of airsoft bb's at once. It is too dangerous (not to mention hefty... It's 6 feet long!) to fire directly at people, so it makes a good mortar. I only ended up paying $20 for it is the best part too.

How to make a long lasting battery pack for portable vaporizer that is small and long lasting?

What would the specs be to make a battery or buy a battery that would work for my portable vapir oxygen mini vaporizer? Can I just use any 12v battery pack or is it more complicated than that? The ac adapter says the output power is 12v----1.5A with a max output power of 18w. And I know the oxygen mini has an optional battery pack but it is expensive and doesn't last that long. The attached picture is of the ac adapter. Also how could I charge this pack?

Custom MP3 Player Cases and Case Mods here

This is where you can suggest cases for iPods, such as a carved out book that holds an iPod and headphones (like the one I made last year) or maybe have an idea to make a secret iPod holder out of a pop can. If you have any ideas/pictures of your case (hand made or store bought) post em here. I'll get this started... One idea I have is an iPod case for my 1st gen 4GB apple mini of mine, I am currently making an instructable on it so it will be published once my camera gets back so I can take the finishing pictures of it. Descriptions/ideas/how to make one from an idea listed/pictures/ect. are all welcome here (MP3 player related).

i have an idea for a custom ergonomic mouse, and i'm hoping for someone to judge me.

Hello community, lately i've been feeling some pain in my wrist from computer usage, and while letting my wrist get some rest, i thought about getting an ergonomically designed mouse. but let's face it: it's way more fun to make one yourself =) so i have this idea for casting a mouse casing, but i never casted anything before, so i'm hoping to find some mistakes in my plan before they cost me money (I'm not stingy, i just don't have a lot of money). so i'm hoping that someone who did cast stuff before could judge my plan before i execute it. - i'll first unscrew my current mouse, and see how the electronics inside are held in place. - i'll let my hand rest in silly putty, so it'll take the shape of my hand in a relaxed position. - then i'll use silicone putty to make a negative of my hand mold. (i'm not sure whether silly putty and silicone putty are the same thing, i'm very bad at doing productive research. if they are, that's a problem, and i might need to use something else). - after i've got my negative, i'll use something like Instamorph to create the actual case i'll eventually use. i'll also make a shape for the inside to hold the elektronics. depending on how precise this has to be, i might use another mold for that too. - to finish it up, i'll take the newly made case out of it's mold, apply some custom painting (just for fun), and perhaps some rubber for extra grip, and then transfer the elektronics. so that is my plan. i hope i'll get some productive comments on this, and perhaps i'll learn something from it. i'm going to study product design, so how awesome would it be if i did it with a self-designed mouse ^_^ oh, and this might be posted in the wrong place. i haven't used this website for a while. if it is, please accept my apologies. i hate messy websited too. =P

Need someone who can laser-cut/machine a number of parts based on my design...

Hello all! I need some custom-designed parts for a project I am doing and I don't (yet) have the machinery and means to make them. I could go to any number of online places for custom parts, but I ask here first because I am trying to both support and rely on the community spirit of the site, and because the members here are more sensitive to some of the weird stuff people around here make and therefore are not simply suggesting materials based on "industry standard" uses. Additionally, I thought I would probably get a better deal without the "limited production run" price hike that machine shops usually charge. To add to that, I don't need new and shiny materials. As long as it works, I don't mind using what comes off of other people's scrap piles. I don't have the designs laid out yet, but I'm thinking I will probably have a need for cutout polycarbonate or aluminum about 3/16 to 1/4 inch thick (4.7-6.3mm), I'm not sure of the material yet. Basically, it would involve drilling one or more holes at each end of a short strip of that. Dead simple, and a pain that I can't do it, but like I said, I don't have the tools. For now, that's all I can think I need. If you're interested, send me a message and we can talk about details and compensation. I look forward to helping the Instructables community be as self-sufficient as possible! Thanks, Gareth

Pancake crane from a pancake master

Pancakes are awesome just being their lovely fluffy selves, but others have found that they can also be a great way to express yourself as well. Here on Instructables we've seen them made in cool shapes and printed on, but the site Jim's Pancakes takes it to a whole new level with all sorts of creations Jim makes for his daughter like the crane below. Great stuff. Jim's Pancakes via neatorama

How do I go about making this

I was thinking about making this, and making an instructable with it, but I have come to a dilemma.  I am a novice at electronics.  And as such, I would like input on how to go about doing this project, I was thinking Arduino at first...and it got pricey from that angle, was then thinking about full on design from scratch and just buy each component as I need it.  Please any input is appreciated on this project.

Custom Electronics Project Enclosures

I need to have a custom enclosure made for my senior design project. It has to be placed on the back of a hand and thus have some curve to it to hug around the hand. Also, it can not be much bigger than about the size of a deck of cards. Most places I've found only have rectangular enclosures. Does anybody know of a place that could fabricate the custom design I described? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Custom Painted Nerf Guns (Looking for Offers)

Hello!  I'm JonnyBGood, and I'm looking to accumulate some offers for my custom painted Nerf guns. I don't plan on going as far as commissions, I just want to see if there's any interest in my work for the right price. As of right now I'm mainly checking the market, before fully investing in making more custom Nerf guns. When making an offer, please send me it in a PM and make sure to consider that I've spent a minimal of five hours of painting. Also consider the cost of the blaster and the time required to make modifications. In my state, the minimal wage is around 8$ so I will ignore any offer that has me literally working for free. I hope that this works out and I receive a lot of reasonable offers so I can start painting, and then I will definitely get back to everyone who has sent me an offer.  Thanks for checking out my latest endeavor, and I hope my received feedback allows this to be successful!  JonnyBGood

Custom Bass

If you could have a custom bass (or have one) what would it be like? If i had one, it would have the cutaway style of a Music man bongo, with tribunal flame bridge. the end of the body would have a sort of curved flying v style to it. The finish would be a sort of metallic blue and black flame. KIllswitch, and a couple of built in effects, couple gaine and tone knobs. 5 string, with the usual music man head. Maybe a bit different though, all thats just off the top of my head.

Custom Minecraft Wall Torch

Hello all. This is my first time here so, I hope I can find the info I need. I've never used a soldering iron before and know little about wiring, but I'm eager to learn. I'm looking to customize an electronic Mainecraft wall torch that I have, with a flickering light. However, I wanted to come here first to see if anyone has opened one of these up before. I was planing on using a flickering light from one of those electric candles. I'm not sure if it's as simple as switching out the LED or if I have to rip more parts from the candle. I appreciate any help you can give. Thanks

[Help] Custom sounds for model

I've created a resin cast of a gun (raygun) from a video game (Black ops 2) and as part of making it as authentic as possible I would like to have it emit sounds I've pulled from the game at the press of a button, much like a toy gun. I don't know where to go with the idea from here. I would like something that's relatively easy to hear and not too quite and powered by batteries. If someone could point me in the right direction as far as parts I would need to achieve this I would appreciate it.

Custom Refrigerator Skin

I wanted to figure out how to create a skin for large items such as refrigerators, washing machines,  etc.   I am having trouble conceptualizing the necessary steps to completely hide cosmetic blemishes on large machines and appliances.  Would creating a skin be a good solution?  I am guessing there is a more elegant way than simply placing a large image printout underneath glass?  Also FYI, some of the appliances are completely brand new so I would ideally want a "top layer" solution as opposed to a "painting" solution. Nice to have features: 1.  weather proof 2.  Can be easily swapped with new design

Custom Stairwell Doubles as Handy Bookshelf

These stairs provide access to a loft room in a tiny apartment as well as a nifty spot to place loads of old paperbacks and CDs. As someone who is getting threats to start getting rid of books on a near daily basis, I can appreciate this.Another thing that's interesting is that this is the first set of stairs I've seen that has a prescribed way of going up and down them. You're meant to step on the side that sticks out more with the indent allowing the traveling foot to clear it. I think I'd want a handrail if I wanted to prevent any houseguests from plummeting down and slamming into the door at the bottom, though. linksee also:Stairs that double as dressers

Any ideas for a PC case mod?

I've decided to clear out my assorted computer detritus (Love that word) and have decided to build myself a teamspeak/ventrillo server from the various pieces. Thing is, i have many small form factor components and no case in which to put them. I previously tried putting the PC into a Frosties (Cereal) box , with success, although the case was too flimsy. This leaves me with the following question:What can I put a small PC in (besides buying a case) that is around the size of a 1kg cereal box or larger?Pictures of Frosties mod

Making new bench seat

I need to remake the rear bench seat for my boat. The old one is about 100lbs and I would like something a little lighter. I can make a new frame with aluminum, but I am stuck with what to replace the cushions with. Whatever foam they are using is super heavy as well. Is there some way to remake the seat with styrofoam beads beads or something and still maintain form? I considered making a cheap gel seat using a thinned out mixture of silicone, but that wouldn't be any lighter than the original bench and would likely be heavier, actually. I think foam beads would work pretty slick.

How can you make a custom mouse?

Is there a way to make a mouse to fit my hand or anyone else's? Maybe use arduino to help connect all the buttons together or any other type of controllers. It would be like making a custom fighting stick or headphones. Either by making a totally different mouse or by modding an existing mouse would be good.

More Extensive Profile Customization

I think it would be fun to be able to personalize our public profile pages. Uploading custom images to use as backgrounds adds so much personality to a profile. Changing the "color theme" lets users put out clear messages like "I'm professional", "I'm cool", or "I love colors so much omg". All of those are valid messages. Thoughts? Might this be possible? UPDATE: Kiteman has pointed out that choosing which six projects show up on our overview pages would be awesome.

Custom made titanium ring

Hi, Im looking for advice on making a titanium ring for my girlfriend. I choose titanium because shes allergic to stainless steel.  I was thinking of buying a small 3x3 plate or so so I have room to make a few if I screw up. depending on thickness..? Idk what thickness to choose. Then I would need to drill out the inside, and figure out how to size it to her finger by her size.  Then I would have to just shape it somehow. sandpaper? idk. I doubt that but I dont have a lathe available..  so thats why Im here looking for advice, and then after shaping I need to use different compounds to buff and polish it right?

LCD Swappems

Hello creative tech people, This is my first post so I hope I got it in the right section, and I did a lot of research before creating this post. I've been researching this for a bit, and I've gotten a sudden fascination with LCDs (mostly of the full color display variety) and I've been planning on making  custom tablet style PCs based on old laptops just for fun and experimentation but in my planning I hit a bit of a snag in regards to the screen. Since much to my dismay they weren't swappable and relied on a controller intertwined in the motherboard. There's also the inverter which I'm not sure how relevant it is to the project, This is a real issue for me because I wanted to use a variety of screens from big ones to tiny ones from smartphones or mp3 players. I was wondering three things: 1. Can you make a monitor connect to a different motherboard through the magic of soldering? 2. (if #1 is a yes) will the controller handle the different signal or does each one have a different driver format and all that aggravating frippery? 3. Would taking apart a standard vga flat screen monitor and using that instead of a laptop screen avoid the issue altogether? Or would it bring up new problems?
