    Default Tutorial Request Box

    We had talked about trying this so I'll start it here. If there is a specific topic/technique that someone wants a tutorial on then post a request in here. If you see a request here that you feel you are qualified to cover, we would welcome your input and a tutorial if you're up to it. If you are working on a tutorial please drop a note here as well so others know that help is on the way. Thanks everyone, let's see how this works out.

    I have a request!

    How do I remove the "glue-stuff" (isn't it a grease?) on my CPU to put on a new heatsink? Or is that not even possible?

    Or, like me, you could buy a bottle of TIM cleaner. I get Akasa stuff and it smells like lemon. It's great stuff, although a waste of money. Makes you look like a real pro though.

    (Even though real pros laugh at noobs for buying stuff like that... )

    Rubbing alcohol on the CPU? Ill keep that on mind, since I have to change my heatsink next week, probably. Thanks

    One question, that could be answered in a PM if it's too large for the topic : would I be able to do the Carbon Fiber paint on wood without an airbrush? (lol, I know im getting boring with that paint, but Im getting a laptop soon and I wanna paint an airflow base like that, so it'll fit with the laptop Im getting... just google ASUS G1 and you'll see by yourself)

    Such as..? A picture?

    File > Import. Click where on the model you want it, drag your mouse for the size.

    Another model?

    Add it to your scene, click the Tape Measure, click the 2 points you're measuring, and look at the bottom of the screen. It will say, Enter a value to Resize. Enter your number. Nothing pops up, but press the numbers, and then Enter. You'll get a conformation.

    Hmmm...this isn't working out quite like I'd hoped. Most of this could be moved to the modding Q&A section. I'm going to lock this for now. So far there is one request here that may call for a tutorial: Using RCA connections to power fans. The sketchup question and thermal paste question are more Q&A type stuff. For something to be classified in my mind as a tutorial, it should be beginning to end walkthrough to produce something with the use of pictures where possible. I'll go back to the drawing board on this thread and re-think it a bit. For now, if you have a tutorial request PM myself or one of the other moderators and we'll post it here. Thanks,
    Jon
