Welcome to /diy/, a place to:

Post and discuss /diy/ projects, ask questions regarding /diy/ topics and exchange ideas and techniques.

Please keep in mind:
- This is a SFW board. No fleshlights or other sex toys.
- No weapons. That goes to /k/ - Weapons. The workmanship and techniques involved in creating objects which could be used as weapons or the portion of a weapons project that involves them (e.g., forging steel for a blade, machining for gunsmithing, what epoxy can I use to fix my bow) may be discussed in /diy/, but discussing weapon-specific techniques/designs or the actual use of weapons is disallowed. Things such as fixed blade knives or axes are considered tools, things such as swords, guns or explosives are considered weapons.
- No drugs or drug paraphernalia (See Global Rule 1). If you want to discuss something that could involve such things (e.g., carving a tobacco pipe from wood) that's fine, but make sure it's /diy/ related and doesn't involve drugs or it will result in deletion/ban.

I'd like to put up a few hardwire security cameras around my house. I would also like them to record to a HD and be able to have them alert me if they sense motion and I'd so like to have remote access. I dont really want the Chinese crap like arlo or Wayze. Any recommendations?

There is an excess of tools in the market? I remember before there was way less variation in the power, functions or specs of the tools. Now there are so many that you can't even fathom to understand all.
I bought a Makita DHP481 multifunction drill. But now I am thinking if I should have bought a hammer drill + impact driver+ smaller driver for the same price of this jack of all trades. Do you prefer specialized tools, or improvise with what you got and spend less money?

Sup /diy/
I was looking through some of the home listings near where I live and I found link related. It's a manufactured home for a ridiculously low price in a cheap trailer park.
The lot price is 450 a month, and if the estimate that the website gives is at all accurate, paying for this thing monthly will actually be cheaper than the rent that I'm paying now on a 2 bedroom apartment.
What I'm thinking is that there's got to be a catch. Like theres something foundationally wrong with the house, or it wouldn't be this cheap. What are some good resources for how to inspect a house for damage? a book or 2 I could read or even websites. I've looked into paying Home inspectors, but the cheapest one I could find was like 500 dollars, and for a one time thing, I feel like the more obvious issues will jump out at me more if I do a little bit of reading.
Talk me out of this. Am I in over my head? Maybe biting off more than I can chew? I feel like huberus will be my downfall here, but for me rent seems like I'm just throwing money into a hole that I'll never see back again, at least with something like this I'll actually be working towards owning something eventually.

Previous thread: >>2137765

Here we discuss microcontrollers, SBCs and microcontroller accessories, such as Atmel AVR and attinys (Arduinos), ARM boards such as blue/black pill STM32, ESP32, RPI, and others.

>where can I verified quality microcontrollers and other electronic sensors or parts

>but that's too expensive

>I need a part that does X and Y, with Z specifications. How can I find it?
use digikey or mouser's parametric part search. Then purchase from one of the sellers listed above.

>how do I get started with microcontrollers, where should I start?
There is no defined starting point, grab a book and start reading or buy an arduino off ebay/amazon and start messing around. There are a plethora of examples online to get started.

All the info you need about 3D-printing:

>Your print failed? Go to:

If that doesn't help you solve your print problems, please post:
>A picture of the failed part
>Printer make & model
>Filament type/brand
>Slicer & slicer settings

>What printer should I buy? [Last updated 12-8-2020]
Under 250 USD: Creality Ender 3 (Pro), Anycubic Mega S
Under 500 USD: Qidi X-One2, Creality CR-10, Anycubic Chiron, Prusa Mini (If you want to wait months for it to show up)
Under 1000 USD: Prusa i3
Over 1000 USD: Lulzbot, Ultimaker, Markforged
SLA: Anycubic Photon, Elegoo Mars, Prusa SL1, Formlabs Form 3
Instead of buying a new printer, you could consider building your own:

>Where can I get free things to print?

>What CAD software should I use?
Variants of professional programs such as Solidworks (lol paying for software), Fusion360, Inventor, Onshape, and AutoCAD may be free depending on your profession, level of piracy and definition of ''free''.
Most anons use Fusion360, but some /g/oobers prefer OpenSCAD or FreeCAD. If you want to do free-forming and modeling, Blender is alright.

I fucked it

Well lads is it over? I attempted an hdmi port replacement on an original model xbox one I got for free from a buddy. Though, like the tard I am, I ripped two pins clean off. I know asking, "is this reparable?" probably means I've fucked it beyond my ability, but I'm desperate. On hand I have a hot air gun, cheap iron, 30 awg kynar wire, no scope but good eyes and a magnifying glass. Please help.

Stupid/small question thread

What's the best way to remove the "fluff" from this fabric? It's a sofa so quite a large surface area.
I've been recommended either one of those trimmers you can use on clothes for the same purpose, or a disposable razer. Both seem like they would take a long time. Any other ideas?
