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.

GOD DAMN IT, not again. This is number three.

How the fuck do I dispose of this thing without creating a huge stink? I killed the first one, and it sprayed when it died. The second one I tried very carefully to move it like they say online, but as soon as I covered it, the fucking thing sprayed. So here I fucking am with skunk number three.

When i caught the first one, i called animal control who told me to fuck off. Then I called Parks and Wildlife who also told me to fuck off!

I can't fucking wait to get a closing date for the house I'm buying and move.

I live in an apartment in eastern europe. What are some permanent solutions?
The walls are pretty wet. My hunch is that the windows (new) that were put in weren't put there properly. Please help this noob.
Looks just like pic.

>Where can I get free things to print?
https://www.thingiverse.com/
https://grabcad.com/
https://google.com/

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