• Hi - We're having intermittent forum issues. Posts, alerts, and anything involving email like signing up or password changes are having problems but not for everyone or everywhere. Josh is working on it. No ETA right now. Thanks Josh - BTW this is a volunteer forum so SLA's are just best effort. EDIT -> I manually batch updated about 25 people stuck on the email notification. Try logging in now with your password. EDIT -> May 8/23. I updated another bunch of users stuck on email notifications. Try to login if you are stuck. If you really can't get in contact us on facebook or if you know a forum member get them to ask us.

Project Plans Forum - read this before you post


Premium Member
This is the forum to share project plans on how to build something. The bare minimum for a post here is:
  • A description of what your project does.
  • A photo of the actual item preferably demonstrating its use. ie. it actually works. (theoretical or in progress projects can be posted in the projects forum)
  • Some sort of plan, drawing, model, something that can be followed to actually make the project.
  • Pictures of plans can be directly uploaded.
  • More sophisticated files are welcomed, like PDF's, 3d models, .STL files, .DXF, Fusion or CAD model exports. In order to attach those files please consolidate all the files into a single .zip archive and upload the archive. The forum does not support many file types so building a .zip archive is necessary.
Some do's & don't's.
  • Don't ask for project plans. Requests go in other forum areas. A moderator may move your request for plans to another part of the forum in order to keep the project plans area clean.
  • Start a new thread for each distinct project
  • You agree you won't use the plans for a commercial enterprise. You can make some for work - but don't go into business making the item. If you want to do that talk to the member who published the item.
  • You agree to not copy and republish these materials elsewhere - instead just link to this site.
  • If you see projects elsewhere that are relevant just post links to that site. Don't copy those materials and repost them here.
The rules if you post:
  • Your plans & drawings will not be sold to anyone by us.
  • Your posted materials remain your property. But people can make the project. Otherwise what is the point?
  • By posting, you agree to permit and license us without limitation to use and display them on the site, and you agree not to remove them, or render them unusable.
  • You agree not to disable the plans and drawings or posts should you withdraw your membership to the forum, or be asked to withdraw.
  • Members are welcome and encouraged to make revisions and post their variations as separate files and posts.
