The Human Machine

It isn't that long ago that explaining human physics and behavior was imagined by copper etching. This picture seems funny to us now. But 100 years ago this was the way to explain the functions in the human head. I found this picture in an old book and I want to share it with you. This is nice for silkscreening or transfer print at T-shirt or any other surface. When you want High-Res 2208 × 2732 and 300 dpi let me know.

Screen Printing Help!

Hey everyone, I did some screen printing in school, but for some reason I don't remember the processes used, and now I want to screenprint again, and I am looking up all these ways to DIY silkscreen at home on the internet and everythings cool, but I got a question, might be stupid, but hey. Every process involves using a transparency sheet to burn you image into the screen (if you are doing photorealistic images, which I plan to...) but where can I get my image on a transparency larger than letter size? For example, I have a screen that can hole an image larger than 24 x 36, that I would like to make, huge, large prints with, but I could hardly fathom a transparency that large, or how much it would cost to have one printed...is there a website for that kind of thing? Thanks a bunch...

Instructables T-Shirt

"These shirts are hand-made art silkscreened in Northern California on high-quality American Apparel t-shirts." how about an instructable on how these t-shirts are made? I'd love to learn how to screen print shirts that look as professional. btw - what's with the search function on this site? it doesn't exactly...function... very well, does it?

SMD Soldering without Soldermask?

I'm working on a project and I needed to get a PCB made. I was planning on getting it from BatchPCB, but I ran into a little problem... I'm using a NAND Flash chip, which is TSSOP48; the footprint has 6mil spacing! (BatchPCB has a 8mil minimum) The next cheapest solution would be Barebones PCB, which makes prototype PCBs without soldermask & silkscreen. I'm worried about soldering on the Flash chip, and another LQFP48. Will the lack of a soldermask make it impossible to do?

Printing my logo designs onto a usb flash drive any ideas?

Hi guys, I need to print some white graphics onto a flat black USB flash drive, I've included a picture.  I'd prefer to do this using a silkscreen process of some sort. Do you have any ideas about the most efficient way to get this done. I want to avoid Pad printing because of the high cost. I have 200 to print on both sides (400 prints total). Let me know what you think, thanks!

Does anyone need 3 coffins?

Hey y'all! I was wondering if anyone needed 3 coffins? I used them in a performance but am moving and have to get rid of them. I'd love to see them used in another project. If you can offer something, it would be wonderful to get a return on the materials cost (it was a street performance, so I didn't make any cash monies) but I will also consider trades or possibly just giving them away to someone who has an awesome idea! Things I'd like to trade for: letterpress ink or other letterpress shwag, art / craft / drawing paper, lino blocks, silkscreening stuff, other printing / book-making stuff More info and some photos here: http://sfbay.craigslist.org/eby/art/3665821234.html

Instructables Build Night! 9/22

I am thrilled to announce that Instructables Build Nights have returned with a vengeance. And our amazing new friends at The reMake Lounge are going to help host them and a host of upcoming Instructables workshops.We invite one and all to come and bring whatever it is you are working on or would like to swap. If you're not working on anything there will be a YUDU (silkscreen machine) there for people to experiment with and a host of materials and tools like soldering irons and craft supplies. I will also be bringing an Arduino to play around with and would happily give anyone a crash course on how to use one for the upcoming Arduino Contest.Meet and mingle with local makers. Learn, share, explore and have fun! It will be just like the internet, but in real life! Festivities start at 5:30. The Remake Lounge is located atCrocker Galleria 50 Post St. Suite 9San Francisco, CA 94104 (Ground level near Sutter St. Entrance!)We look forward to seeing you!

Good kits?

Off in another thread we were talking about goodkits being a good way to get your feet wet with the practicalities of electronics: how to solder, what the individual bits look like, and so on. I was lamenting the demise of Heathkit - many a engineer in my generation had their first electronics experience putting together one of Heath's kits, using their excellent instructions.So anyway, what kits are available today that offer the hobbyist a "good" and educational building experience? The kits should have good quality PCBs and components, instructions that go far beyond "solder all the components to the board in the places indicated by the silkscreen", and hopefully some amount of theory on how the thing works, and how to troubleshoot it if it's NOT working.I'll recommend:Lady Ada's stuff - I'm not sure I'm wild about online vs printed instructions, but it certainly gives you a good chance to see what you're getting into before you order anything, and it probably permits a higher level of quality in the instructions than it would be cost-effective to have printed.2Dkits Blinkies - a more limited selection, 2dkits specializes in neat little LED badge-like things

Willoughby & BalticWe make wonderful things.Willoughby & Baltic is a community organization of people who make stuff. Among our ranks are artists, engineers, writers, teachers, and everything in-between. In fact, everyone in W&B; is all of those things to some degree - and more.We exist to provide our members what they need to create. Primarily, that involves having comfortable, usable space and an extensive arsenal of tools and equipment available.

Leah Buechley and Instructables Written Up by Forbes: "A Blinking Fashion Statement"

Instructables members Leah Buechley, Plusea, and enlighted got a nice mentions by Forbes in A Blinking Fashion Statement.For all their talk of breaking glass ceilings, Sarah Palin and Hillary Clinton have nothing on Leah Buechley.In the several years since she first sewed a circuit board to a T-shirt, the 31-year-old University of Colorado computer-science researcher has done a lot to bring gender equality to the world of do-it-yourself, perhaps shattering a certain silicone-based ceiling once and for all."The tinkering group has always been a boys' club," says Buechley, referring to the DIY movement's loosely formed faction of tech geeks, gear heads and circuit wizards who tinker with electronic gadgets in basements and garages across America. At the same time, she says, the arts-and-crafts contingent (think knitters, sewers and silkscreeners) has traditionally been a more feminine domain. ...True to their fashion roots, DIY wearables are not always practical. A recent tutorial on Instructables.com gives readers a step-by-step for making what the author calls a "wearable waste of energy": a sweatshirt affixed with a glowing light-emitting diode (LED)."It's not purely functional," says Syuzi Pakhchyan, author of the new book Fashioning Technology. "It's functional and aesthetic."..."Turn your favorite clothing item into a wearable waste of energy!" writes Hannah Perner-Wilson in her tutorial on Instructables.com. The project is as much a teaching tool as it is a fashion statement. Perner-Wilson takes readers step-by-step through how to use conductive fabric, pressure sensors and a vibration motor to make a final product. She also encourages fellow tech-crafters to think about making the shirt less wasteful: "Solar cells are an option," she writes.More news and press about Instructables here.
