When entering the text for a post, you can find several options below the text input area. Click on the option "Attachments" then on the button "Add files":

Use the file dialog that is shown to select a file from your hard disk. This can for example be a DXF, DWG, PNG, JPEG, PDF, SVG, JS or other file.
Click OK in the file dialog once you've chosen the file to attach.

The file name is now shown and the file has been added to your post:

You can now submit your post.

For Advanced Users

It is also possible to insert and display images at any appropriate position directly in the post, between two paragraphs of your post. To do this, place the cursor at the desired position and click "Place inline". You can now see a reference to the image in your post. The image will be displayed exactly at that position between the text:
