This is a tutorial of how to use Fabble.
- Account and Group settings can be changed pressing the settings button on the top right of the page. This step can be skipped.
- The page for documenting the whole process of making is called the Project. Use the + icon on the top right of the page to create a new Project and enter the following information.
About Recipe0The process of making and the necessary materials, tools and blueprints will be documented in Recipe. This documented process may be forked (creating a different Project based on an existing one) by another user and evolve into a new project.
About Recipe0The experiences and tips of making will be written in Memo. Please share the story about what you are making by documenting it here. Why did you want to make it? What didn’t work out? Write this down as you go through the process of making, to share the time you spent and the decisions you made.
Using these documentation form0We assume that users will take notes on Memo and document the process in Recipe. But you can also choose only one format. When working as a group, it may be efficient to divide the group into those who do the making and those who document that process on Fabble.
Writing a Recipe0The Recipe shows how the state of what you are making has changed. The process of how it has changed from one state to another will be described as Annotations. Or you can use the State as a headline and Annotation as the subheading.
Mark Up of Materials, Tools, and Blueprints0While documenting, the name of a material, tool and blueprint data can be assigned as "Material", "Tool" or "Blueprint" using the Markup tool. Uploaded files can be linked to one of these categories. All of the marked content will be listed at the top of the Recipe.
300-character limit0There is a 300-character limit (is nearly equal to 50 words in English) for the State and Annotation. Use simple sentences, pictures, screenshots, and YouTube videos to efficiently share your process.
Writing a Memo0Use Memo however you like. You can document your process like a diary or write down your trials and errors. The documentation format is similar to the State and Annotation, however there is no character limit so you can write as much as you like.
Editing tags0The Project’s tags can be added and edited by any user. Tags will make it possible to find you project using the search box on the site. They can be used for projects that continue in a series, events that would like to manage all of the works, or to simply categorize your project.
Adding to favorites0Selecting the star on a Project will add it to your favorites. The favorited Projects can be viewed in the favorite tab on your personal page. Adding projects here will make it easier to find later on.
Adding comments0Anyone can leave comments as long as they are signed in. Creators can receive feedback from comments and improve their Recipe.
