Is sugru safe?

Hello, Doe's anyone know if it is actually safe to use sugru on our project? I mean, is it safe to let a kid use something that got sugru on it, or to put sugru near our ear/mouth/eye?

does sugru stretch?

Does sugru stretch after it dries?

Question about Sugru.

For anyone that has used Sugru in the past, how much grip does it have once completely cured and dry? I was wondering if I could use it on the outside of a 3D printed wheel to get good grip like a rubber tire. If not any suggestions for other materials I could use? Thanks!

Questions about Sugru

Until finding this site a couple of weeks ago, I had never heard of sugru. Then when I first saw it mentioned here, I think the name put me off - I kept thinking sugar craft / marzipan. Anyway, after looking around the site a bit more thoroughly, I've since discovered that this product looks extremely interesting and something I definitely want to try. Which leads me to a few questions. Is it available in shops, or do I have to order it online - more specifically, if it is available in shops, where in Australia would I get it? One use I saw for it was to take the place (sometimes) of poly clay in my modeling. One method I use is to make a ball out of foil and cover this with polyclay. Then after cooking, I cut a small area out of the clay (usually while it's still warm and not quite completely cured) and pull the foil out. This leaves me with a hollow vessel. So I'm wondering if I use Sugru, would I be able to cut a piece of the model out (maybe before it hardens completely) and will I be able to remove the foil or will the sugru stick to the foil. Another question. I see that the coloured sugru can be combined to create new colours. Has anybody tried successfully using paint or some sort of pigment to colour the sugru? Thanks Norma

No Sugru contest banner on entries

I just noticed that none of the Sugru contest entries have Sugru contest banners on their instructables.

Does Sugru shrinks (contracts) upon curing? Answered

If Yes, then by how much of its original volume? I plan to press on the legs of an LED into a dough of sugru and then remove the LED and leave it to cure. Would the holes (created by the legs of the LED) shrink, is what I wanted to know..

Too much Sugru in 'ibles diet

Hi guys... Ok, I was posting this asa comment, then I remembered the "be nice" rule and thougth about setting things in a positive way. AIM: I like instructables a whole lot. I come here EVERY DAY for inspiration and help in many things. So I whant it to remain the nice place I think it is, full of creative people that solves everyday problems and improves lives of other with the power of theyr brain and hands. In order to keep this I thing it is important to keep things "brand free". COMPLAIN: There are too much questionable sugru instructables around, Let's face it. Some of them are real innovative and clever, but much of those are daily and"not that usefull" at all. The point is: aren't those qualifiable as COMMERCIAL ADDS ?? I mean... I like that thing, but are we sure that there is nothing irregular going on? Thanks

Conductive paint on homemade sugru?

I've seen both instructables seperately, but would the paint work if applied on the homemade sugru? I believe I could make a speaker more soundtight with the sugru, and the paint would make the conductivity better.

What's the density of cured Sugru? Answered

Can anyone tell me the density of cured Sugru?  A specific number would be best (in grams per milliliter preferably), but if I can't get that, does it float in water?  (If you don't know what Sugru is, see the Instructables store.) Thanks!

Upcoming Sugru Contest Giveaways

*************************************************** We have no more Sugru to give out. Thank you everyone who requested some I'm looking forward to seeing all of your projects! *************************************************** We've been spending some time recently chatting with the great people over at Sugru, trying to figure out a good contest to run.  However, in talking it over with them, we have come to realize that if we launch a Sugru contest, everyone would have to buy Sugru in order to enter it.  No one was fans of this idea, and so we came up with am alternate plan. Before running the contest, they would ship us a box full of Sugru Smart Hacks Super Packs for us to send out to selected authors. We've already given out these packs to a number of authors as a way of saying thank you for the amazing projects they've submitted, but we still have some left.  So, here's where you come in!  We want to offer these to anyone who wants to create a project using this awesome material! This is first come, first serve.  We have under thirty packs to give out, so they might go quick.  I'll update this post if and when supplies start running out or are gone. Our only request of you is that you use what we send you to make something awesome and enter that something awesome into the Sugru contest when it finally does launch.  Of course, entering the contest will also make you eligible for a number of other prizes. So let me know in the comments if you would like one, and I'll send you a prize notification that you'll need to fill out.  Best of luck, and happy creating! Current Count: 000

Sugru Build Night at MakeICT in Kansas

MakeICT participated in their first Instructables Build Night in July by making stuff with Sugru!  It turned out to be a lot of fun.  A couple people showed up with ideas.  A couple more people showed up without ideas, but they were quickly inspired by suggestions.  One guy who was at our space for the first time had used Sugru before and was willing to share best practices.  Sugru seems like a useful tool to keep around the makerspace, so thanks to Instructables for introducing it to us! Here are some of the Sugru projects our members worked on: Eyeglass repair by forming new nose pads DIY multimeter tweezer probes A universal tripod mount that works with any phone or tablet A mustache - for those times when you need to quickly disguise yourself We also had a member repairing a table-top gaming piece by forming a new base out of Sugru.  Another member used Sugru and recycled pieces of corrugated plastic (yard signs) to prototype a homeless shelter. Thanks to the Instructables team for the help in organizing these build nights! We look forward to participating in more.

Instructables Build Night w/ Sugru @ ENTS

Here at ENTS (Edmonton New Technology Society) we have weekly hacker nights on Tuesday. So last Tuesday we decided to turn our weekly hacker night into Sugru night. We had a modest turn out but it gave those interested a chance to play around with Sugru. We had a few people fixing some items around the space, to modifying some existing items, even some impromptu shoe repair. Someone was working on a toy dog and was going to make the lights blink. Big thanks to James Chaulk for helping out!  Here is a few photos of our majestic space on that night:

Sugru Build Night at Makers Local 256!

Hey Makers and Breakers, Tinkerers and... uh, Thinkerers! Tyler here, from the Makers Local 256 hackerspace in Huntsville, Alabama! I just wanted to share some of the projects and ideas we toyed around with on our monthly build night for July. Our theme was Sugru, thanks to some kind gifts from Carley and the rest of the folks at Instructables; you guys rock! We had a few different projects that were worked on, so I'll start with the ones with Instructables attached first! My project was to modify an AppleTV remote so that it would stop sliding between the cushions of the couch, but decided to allow it to stand up on its own as well. The mod was quick and simple and is described in my Instructable here. Another member grabbed a couple of those spinny whirlygig handcopter toys and set out to combine them into a single, more powerful, machine! Those of you who knit know the annoyance of losing stitches when transporting your works in progress. DeathRogue decided that enough was enough and fashioned some knitting needle endcaps out of Sugru! We also had other little projects, including adding a Sugru kickstand to a Galaxy Note 2 for watching Netflix, building a wooden spindle using Sugru for the kickwheel, creating rubber Sugru feet for a Raspberry Pi case, and even practicing the ancient Japanese art of breaking and mending pottery pieces: Kintsugi! Check out our pictures of the event, and if you're ever in the North Alabama region, come check us out!

Can sugru be reused after it has cured and been removed?

     I saw an instructable on using sugru to make "bumpers" on the corners of an iPhone to protect it from shock and the like.  This looks like a good idea, but I don't really want to have a bunch of silicone on my phone all the time--just when it has a higher risk of taking a bad drop (hiking, for instance).  The instructable says that the sugru can be removed, but it does not say whether or not the molded corners can be removed and put back on as needed.  Does anybody know if this is possible?  Thanks!

By entering the Contest, each entrant agrees to abide by the terms of these Rules and by the decisions of Sponsor and the Judges, which shall be made in all cases in their sole and absolute discretion and are final and binding on all matters relating to the Contest. The Contest is governed by the laws of the State of California and applicable United States federal law, without regard to any conflicts of laws principles. The Contest is void where prohibited by law.

Additional Entry Requirements. Each entry must comply in all respects with the Policies, including without limitation all requirements for user submissions, as stated in the Terms of Use https://www.instructables.com/tos.html for the Sponsor Site.

The entries with the highest score(s) will be selected as the winner(s), and the number and type of winners will be as identified in Section A above. The Judges have the right to disqualify any entry that is not in compliance with these Rules, in the Judges' discretion.

The Future Needs Fixing!

As you may, or may not, be aware, Sugru have done a bit of a re-launch of their site & community. Guess who was was of sixty or so people asked to help? (Blink, and you'll miss me!) Sugru is a brilliant material for Makers, with hundreds of projects already posted on Instructables, it comes out of the packet like sticky modelling clay, after a few minutes it starts to cure, until it fully sets as a food-safe silicone rubber that will adhere to most surfaces.

Strengthen plaster of paris with Christmas tinsel?

Through the Answers section here, I learned of mixing borax, rebake into powder, and then mix alum to create a high polishable cast...and also read discussion of the use of horse hair or fiberglass fibers from insulation for reinforcing the plaster. Unfortunately, I haven't ever found enough details to test either of these methods. The other day at the store, my wife asked if tinsel would work. It never occurred to me, but it sounds like it would make sense. Have you ever tried to pull a strand of that stuff a part? Also, I'm sure right after Christmas, it would be dirt cheap and in vast supply. I have been using the plaster of paris for making mold for some Sugru/Oogoo projects. Anyone ever try this or have any suggestions? Or if anyone knowledge about the fiberglass thing that I can use as basis, that would be cool too. Also, I know there are better materials than plaster of paris, that are stronger and all, but I am trying to at least use what I have on hand first, and I know other people would find it useful too.

Can Sugru prevent an old, eroded rubber gasket from failing?

I have a great old Corona ultrasonic humidifier that is 21 or 22 years old. The humidifier works like a dream, but the old rubber gasket around the vibrating plate is going to fail soon. I am thinking that Sugru would be a fix to model around and on top of the existing gasket. Anyone think it would have trouble under water? It's one of the best old humidifiers  but has gone out of production. Have kept this sucker clean and in good order. The gasket has eroded considerably, and if it goes it will be a dead machine. I have repaired the broken water tank twice. I used a piece of Sugru to hold an old toilet flapper in place inside the reservoir tank and it hasn't moved in months. Anyone work with Sugru for things underwater? It is my only hope to keep this great old machine working. Sooner or later, it will go, but it is a grand old remnant of the days when we built things to last. My old metal blade fans are still going even after a switch had to be replaced. Good maintenance will keep things running  long after they are supposed to fail from use. Appreciate anyone and everyone's help. Thanks! Tess Elliott

Instructable disguised as a product advertisement? Answered

All the steps explain how to use the product after purchase... I may be wrong, but, why is that even allowed here? It was also featured in the last Instructables Email that I got.... I just don't get it. Here's the instructable Additional Note: It seems that almost (if not) all, the ibles by that author are showing how to use the same "product" in another way. Doesn't that just open the door to every marketing department out there to get free product advertising??? (Seriously, think about all the ible's with Fitz's giving yet another use for the smart chop...)

Fixperts - Designers doing something useful!

I was recently alerted to Fixperts.org. It's a fascinating concept - "real" designers get paired with folk with actual, unsolved problems (typically related to a mobility issue), and produce bespoke solutions, making a nice little video in the process. Introduction to Fixperts from Billo on Vimeo. It's mainly a UK thing at the moment (some of the folk from Sugru are involved, although it's not a Sugru scheme), but there's nothing stopping you, dear reader, starting up something similar through your own school, college or Hackspace. There are even guidelines on the site on how to join in. I've been told of companies that make bespoke prosthetics, or connect problems to solutions, but this is the first voluntary group I've encountered that drags Design out of the showroom or gallery, directly to those who actually need these skills now. I'm going to keep an eye on Fixperts, and I think you ought to as well... @Fixperts

Notification of winner not received

I was one of the winners of the Coffee Challenge (YEAH ME!!!) I have never received "official" notification (I think I read I would need to sign something) I just saw my Instructable (Good Morning Coffee Soap) on the Winner List. I didn't think much about not getting the prizes until my DH asked tonight. What do I need to do, or whom do I need to contact? Now that I'm thinking about it I've never gotten the Sugru from entering a before and after beard picture on the December beard challenge. :-(

Thank you, Instructables!!

We were astounded at the awesome box of stuff you sent us! Our kids were thrilled with the Makedo kits and airfish. I've always been a huge fan of Sugru, and couldn't afford to buy more when I ran out, but now I've got a supply!  <3 You guys are amazing in so many ways. Your support for my family has been so kind, and the community you've created has kept me sane through these past few years when life was so busy I could barely think straight. I feel honored to be a part of this community.
