I have been thinking about this for a while and I think that it could be a good idea, to add a DIY section to the forum.
The great and inspiring modding and custom builds, get more and more numerous here, so it would make it easier to find those that would be helpful for whatever project that strikes ones fancy.
It could be a section on its own or a subforum in Hardware & Tech Questions section.
I think that there is quality and quantity enough to warrant its own section, but that’s just my opinion.
I for one have several projects that would fit right in and I have discovered a Makerspace fairly close to me, that have a professional lasercutter. So now I have added some buttonboxes to the todo list and some of the enclosure parts for my 3D printer will be lasercut. I have also ordered a laserhead for the 3D printer, so now I will have to see what I can do with it.
I find it great to be able to see and be inspired by others creativity and it is also great to share my own doings as well. It gives great satisfaction if I can be an inspiration, encourage to go ahead and attempt DIY and show the pitfalls I stumbled into, so others can avoid them.
The willingness here to help out a fellow simmer with whatever problem that is bothering, is just so wonderful and I am very happy to be a part of one the best places in the internet.
