FabMoments

When you, as not KU Leuven student or -personnel, come to FabLab Leuven to make something, you'll need to upload the files of your creation to the website of Instructables with keyword fablableuven. Please, pay attention that you'll issue the "Instructable" completely (only at the end you can write your keyword fablableuven!!). After your "Instructable" has been put on-line, you send an e-mail to fablableuven@kuleuven.be so that we know that you are in order. When, after a while we we notice that you haven't done so yet, we'll send you an- e-mail to remind you. Without a visible "Instructable" you are no longer welcome in our FabLab.

Herewith the link on how to make a good "Instructable": https://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-Create-a-Feature-Worthy-Instructable/

*** Pay attention that Instructables requires steps in the Instructable - ideally your instructable has at least two steps. In step 1 you can e.g. make a photo of your file (don't forget to upload the files itself as well) and in step 2 you can upload a photo of the end result. Of course you are free to add more steps, but be aware that for every step a photo is needed ! The link you get from Instructables, doesn't automatically mean that your instructable is also on line - it's highly possible that they will write a comment and that you need to adapt it before it will be put on line. It's best that you check your link one or two days later for the comment !
