DIY or Craft Project are not used to create DIY Tablet PC or Arduino Projects, in everyday life we basically need to fix household things which have little idea. This article’s target is to create a common Guide of how the Workflow for any DIY or Craft Project should be. The project can be installing WordPress on Rackspace Cloud Server or Creating your own DIY Tablet PC or Fixing your car’s seat or anything you have nearly zero professional idea. If you follow this model described for DIY or Craft Project, you will understand why you can not fix your neighbor’s son’s broken hand unless you have professional knowledge. Fixing bone could have been also a DIY or Craft Project – surgery is basically a crafting work. The reason you can not do it because the risk of failure is more if you try. You probably have never thought in that way, but actually a calculation exists to predict the probability of your success. You will be wondered that fixing a simple fracture has not much huge failure rate – its only 40%. But your neighbor’s son is not a car or any non living object, he can not buy another hand from God later if it get worse, that is the reason why you basically never think of a DIY or Craft Project.
DIY or Craft Project : How The Things Are Thought
Workflow itself is a terminology. Workflow is a substantively complete and properly logically connected sequence of works for processing any goal like Project and its required transitions are controlled by gathered information and resources. If you carefully think – DIY or Craft Project needs a proper workflow. This is what we will give you with an example as a blueprint for your DIY or Craft Project.
The fixation of bone is a Job. That requires a professional setup. So, your first work is to understand which can be a DIY or Craft Project and which will never be completed or if done the condition will be somewhat like asking the God to sell another replacement hand for a surgically complicated broken hand out of your over enthusiasm.
It will also save your money for buying DIY kits, well promoted by many blogs to claim as easy as cutting a piece of butter with a hot knife. You spent $100, wasted time and energy, got fully frustrated, angry, torn your hairs but actually you understood its not possible to create it by you. The seller made their fortune, you blamed your fortune. There is no fortune – they have planned how to push it successfully to you, you never calculated whether it can be a DIY or Craft Project for you. If you are very knowledgeable about rocket, despite knowing the rocket science literally, you can not create a spaceship as a DIY or Craft Project. The reason is limitation of monetary resources to employ many human, even if you can buy the stuffs some how.
Planning Your DIY or Craft Project With Example
It is good to have a dedicated room or a dedicated corner to carry out any DIY or Craft Project. Buy a white bed sheet (as it is ready by sewing the edges, a cloth will need a day to do to that work or make someone to do it, small things matters). A pinboard is a must thing to write your target goal etc.
That white cloth is to cover all the things plus you can work to disassemble an thing if needed for a DIY or Craft Project. As we do not have much knowledge on every parts used for fixing things, the white makes a good contrast to find them. Lighting should always be ambient and more than enough. That is, if you need two CFL, arrange for three. Often extra illumination is needed. The measuring things like metal scale, meters etc. are also needed depending upon the DIY or Craft Project.
There is a magnifying lens used by the watch shops. It is very useful to examine tiny parts. Always keep enough water, use proper more than enough safety precautions for the work you need to do. A movable stool with a table is an ideal setup. Some prefers to sit on the floor. Floor has the advantage that the risk of dropping is nullified. For any project, create a list of things needed for the DIY or Craft Project. Never start a project with some missing thing.
Then create your own simplified version of diagram. Mac users can use iDraw like softwares, there is no practical good software for the other operating systems, you have to use Adobe Photoshop or Gimp. Print it out in big size. There are ways to get a bigger print from A4 / Ledger sized normal printer “ its slicing in to small pieces and printing it. Hang it firmly and give proper illumination so that you can see it while working. Inform your other family members about what the hell you are doing so that they remain alert.
There are defined steps to carry out any project, you can apply for your DIY or Craft Project :
- Processes : Defining the Purposes with a systematic pattern of activity. Within this phase you have to understand whether you will proceed that $100 DIY kit or not.
- Planning and scheduling : A plan is a logically driven set of activities automatically done by the brain. This is what you will need a diagram. We say – think in cool head ; cool head means, the human computer will give the maximum priority to reach the goal.
- Flow and Quality control : Really buying the stuffs and needed tools, monitoring progress, making it to look better etc.
This is an example of a hand crafted Scale Model of early railroad hand car in steel and red painted wood, 9″ x 17″ x 8″ high with handles made in early 20th century, may be from a DIY or Craft Project :
It is on auction now. DIY or Craft Project outputs often cost very very high and no one actually most have no professional training.
Gathering Info and Required Knowledge For Your DIY or Craft Project
Search in Google Web Search, Google Image Search, Find Forums for your DIY or Craft Project to understand how perfectly it can be made. Usually we suggest to develop the supporting chassis first using normal knowledge of physics. If it looks great but on finger flick it break down in to pieces, its quite sad. Also, having a good chassis but bad decoration can make it to look pathetic. You might have to wait for few months to few years for finding a perfect component for finishing.
