Find an instructable you like, such as ]this one
]http//ww…s!/

Now go to the url, you need to do a bit of editing here so firstly look for [COLOR=Blue]id[/COLOR] in the url

]http//www.instructables.com/[COLOR=Blue]id[/COLOR]/DIY-Professional-Lock-Picks!/

Change this to pdf so it looks like this

]http//www.instructables.com/[COLOR=Blue]pdf[/COLOR]/DIY-Professional-Lock-Picks!/

Now we need to copy the final part
]http//www.instructables.com/id/[COLOR=Blue]DIY-Professional-Lock-Picks![/COLOR]/

paste this to the end of the url then add [COLOR=Blue].pdf[/COLOR] to the end

]http//www.instructables.com/[COLOR=Blue]pdf/[/COLOR]DIY-Professional-Lock-Picks!/[COLOR=Blue]]DIY-Professional-Lock-Picks!.pdf

[COLOR=Black]All you need to do now is hit enter and the pdf will load for you!

This doesnt work on all instructables as not all have pdf instructions attached.[/COLOR][/COLOR]

Sorry should have said you need to be logged in to a free standard account first.

My normal account lets me look at them anyway. And view all steps. I don't think they have put the limitation on current users yet.

you can try this cool tool to download any instructable easily and export it as pdf abuouday.com/ins…er/

Is this " Dig up all old threads day " ?

In Chrome install Print Friendly & PDF and using that save as PDF.
