Download PDF broke? Answered

I started noticing that occasionally download the pdf would break  due to server error.
Now it seems as it is entirely broken. I can no longer download the pdf or even view it on a new web tab...

Thanks for letting us know. We're having difficulties with some PDF's right now. It's going to take a few days to figure this weird bug out, then fix. Check back again on this project in about a week.You may notice this happening to a few other projects, but many other Instructables will still work in PDF form.

Please refer to this Forum topic for updates:

I have not been able to download any projects. I get a page stating Instructables is down! for instructable. This happend a few months ago but only lasted for two days or so.

I too am unable to download and have not been able to for over a week. I have a pro account and have taken all steps offered (clear browser etc). The issue persists across IE, Firefox, Chrome and a Chrome variant. I have tried on both my windows 7 and windows 8 machines and from two different physical locations(networks and cities). Still no luck. At this point I will not be renewing my sub when it expires.

Which projects are you having trouble downloading? There have been some server shenanigans, and HQ can regenerate those by hand. (Also, there's a fix in the works.)

What is the URL of the project you're attempting to download as a PDF?

Confirming - I tried to download two random recent projects, one failed, one downloaded an "empty document".

FYI. This works fine for me now in this instructable where there are a few .pdfs
