I would suggest smoothing out the inside cut of the tablet frame.  Sweet!!!

Its pretty perfect, except for the top edge. But I want to mask off the bottom and sides of the LCD as Im getting some bleed through from the backlight slab, I masked the top edge and it looks great. But Im going to wait till I have my Plexiglass layer so I only have to take it off once. Also need to push up the right side Touch Stripe as its not as responsive as the left side one. Thanks for the love!

Paint or put black tape on the side of the plexi, and if it is still showing through, then tape behind the plexi until it doesnt show.

That's made my day, what a sweet piece of work.

I've renamed this board, so it now covers finished builds and pretty pics as well.

Sure thing mate, this has become my fav forum. Ive got one more idea in mind that I will show you when its done. Its nifty.

The question is Naspc, are you going to do the same with your design?

I think you will find that when your refering to me in the plural sense, its Chems'. :P

Seriously thou, Im very intrested in your build, this is such a cool set up, and the Intuos looks so damn slick that youve gotta try and fit yours into the case.

i know, it has a great profile, but i am lazy and if i mess up i don't feel like fixing a fix to get something to fit.
i'm looking at cnc 'ing a case.  i am almost done designing it, all i need is for my friend to fix it up in autocad and off
for fabrication.;

So hows yours doing, have you got any jitters with the 1503?


Title: Re: The Chemstiq
Post by: naspc on March 21, 2007, 01:52:05 PM
i 've tired testing it with both of them striped down one on top another.  (wait a minute that sounded like a very bad sex ed tape)
you get the idea, i have yet to power the lcd ontop of the wacom.

and also chems i keep you in mind if i need any more fcc extenders.
by the way do you have an extra PCB Board for a 20 pin .5mm pitch cable?  (thats what i ordered instead of the bundle)
