what are some fun diy things to make, Im really bored and I wanna make something. nothing that will cost a lot of money tho, and nothing that requires me to go to some specific store out of the way, to get.
Hey diy Last.night i discovered that a few youngsters were breaking in my boat. The boat is in poor condition but i want to change that starting with a new lock or maybe even a new door to stop people from stealing my shit. The door is one of those 2 halves doors where you havevto take the top out first if you want to get the bottom part out too. Will post pic of it. The old lock is completely gone and i still have that hole left in the door. I dont want to put the same lock in because i dont think tjis door design is any good at all... anybody got a good idea for this type of door?
Hey /diy/ 2 year plumbing apprentice here What kind of software can I use to model piping systems? For the most part the stuff I have been dealing with in my apprenticeship has been babby repair stuff you would typically see here on /diy/, but there have been some complicated affairs, such as a complex area drain for a backyard pool that had multiple tiers making it very difficult to get our snake in without camera inspection and huge water heater/re-circulating systems. I would be very interested in any kind of way to provide a 3d model of these systems for our customers.... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1020112 Blender and Maya are not appropriate software for technical drawings. Autocad is not good for 3D. Solidworks is good for piping systems. I used it for powerplant design. The problem is SolidWorks is not intended for architectural systems, and also the models can get very slow when they get very large unless you know how to configure the parts and assemblies to mitigate this.
Autodesk Revit would probably be considered the gold standard for AEC 3d cad. There are lots of other lighter, cheaper, less integratabtle,... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1019563 There's a reason lag bolts aren't sold in bulk and are expensive. It's because the average consumer doesn't need them in bulk so it would not be profitable to try and sell them that way. If you're building a porch and are attaching the frame to the house you only need 8 or so lag bolts, not a box of 100. Because they don't sell them in bulk they mark up the prices to make up the difference so they can still turn a profit. Ebay is probably your best bet in this case, good luck
In socal we have enough industry that there are specialized 'screw and bolt' hardware vendors that that is all they sell, and will sell to consumers for no real deal, you just need to walk in and place an order.
So I ended up doing the acetone/spare plastic Putty mixture because I figure it'd literally become one with the plastic around it. Applied it in thin, spacled coats, drying for a couple of days, sanding down in between, and applying more as necessary. My problem now is that, I guess the putty had some air in it, so now the resulting surface is very porous and full of tiny pin holes. I want to prime and paint this thing, but those holes need taken care of first. How do I best go about filling in these holes and making a 100% smooth surface?
I'm trying to add a remote switch to my speaker system. To do this, I found pic related, a remote controlled switch. The issue is, I want to still be able to use a physical switch on the unit to turn it on and off. If I use this module, it will completely replace that.
So I want to for example; switch on with physical switch, switch off with remote.
How can I do this? Any modules available? Or is there some electronic trickery to do this I do not yet know of?
you need to keep the remote unit ON to be able to use the main switch
an other way would be getting an EE/hobbyst etc. opening up your system and installing a custom solution which places a custom logic instead of the on/off switch. It is not complicated for an EE/hobbyst (its like 10 lines if code on a uC or you can even get it down to logic gates or even opamp comparator level although nowadays these would be more expensive than a 1$ uC) but their hourly wages are probably too high
OP you want an "exclusive or" gate as you described.
XOR outputs a signal if, and only if, one input signal is true. If both signals are off or on then the output is false.
Open up your unit. Wire up the wireless switch onto an appropriate rail from the power supply. Wire the output of the wireless gate into an XOR IC. Unsolder the power switch output from... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
hey guys, im making a bluetooth speaker, made a box for it out of plywood sanded it pretty good, but now im strugling to choose what im doing with it, should i stain the wood should i make decoupage(or whatever its called) or anything else, and if anyone has any sugestions on how to varnish plywood would be much appreciated, last time i did it on plywood it all just went "into" the wood and there was no "shiny" to it, i dont know if and how i need to prep it before warnishing, and sorry for bad english :D
