Do we have anything for general "maker" type questions? My question is specifically about sourcing die-cut patterns and where to obtain 3M teflon products for making mouse feet.
- form (something) by putting parts together or combining substances; construct; create.
"my grandmother made a dress for me"
synonyms: construct, build, assemble, put together, manufacture, produce, fabricate, create, form, fashion, model "he makes models"
It's actually more of a series of questions as I'm unfamiliar with the whole process.
- I have a die press (Cuttlebug), can it cut the type of material I need.
- Where to get custom die-cuts for the press I have (or if I need a different press).
- What software to use to make die-cut patterns for ordering.
- Where to source the appropriate 3M teflon stock.
This type of question is generally either too broad or doesn't fit well into the traditional Stack Exchange categories.
I wasn't able to find anything related to the word "maker" when searching meta. I see that we have a Stack Exchange site for 3D printing, engineering, electrical engineering, and home improvement, but not really a place for general maker-related questions for hobbyists and tinkerers.
If we don't already have an appropriate place that I'm missing, I think a general maker Stack Exchange site would be highly appropriate. Even if some questions may also be appropriate for other, more specific Stack Exchange sites, a collection of questions and answers on the SUBJECT of making stuff, which typically aligns more with hobbyists helping other hobbyists, would be a great place to find and share ideas than would otherwise be less researched and less understood by the very nature of the author's inexperience.
