1  Screen Tablet malarky / Heyaaaalpppp / Intuos 6x8 interest in DIY Cintiq on: May 18, 2012, 06:51:40 AM
I am not an electrician. I have never built anything with electronics, I have no idea what wires do what.
I like to explore, and was wondering if anyone has a step by step walk through, or could walk me through this process.
I've tried reading different build logs, but to me they make no sense, except for the fact that each picture has a different wire connected to something else.
I also read some people were going to buy a 10'' screen on ebay, or even the screen of the iPad. I just don't want to start this without some sort of guide. There is a thread here asking for us to post anything we don't know about, but the problem is I don't even know the names of the cables to ask what they are.
I know a few of you are going to suggest I shouldn't bother creating or attempting to create a LCD tablet, due to my inexperience in electronics. I just have been drooling over a cintiq [and I know of all their scratching and pink tint monitor] and thought this may be my chance.
I am also scared to start this process without help, since upon my research a DIY cintiq requires a lot of trial and error. I don't have that electronic background to be able to fix any problems that arise [flickering screens, what have you.]
Any help would be appreciated.
Edit [you don't need to read this]: I know about tablet mod, they don't support 6x8 intros 3, only 9x12, and also I still would have to get extra parts, and may run into the same problem. I know about Rossmorr, but its still in that price range that I can't afford. I know about Bosto, Yiynova 10'' and 19'', basically I have researched all of these alternatives. Since wacom is a monopoly, either they don't support a cordless pen, don't have touch strips or side buttons, have software problems, have jitter, or are only supported on a windows 7 [Bosto], or can do both operating systems but freak out on macs [Yiynova],aren't portable [neither is a cintiq], etc. I also know about the tablet computers, not all of them have pressure sensitivity, a lot of memory, and as portable as they are, they can't really support big projects.., don't mean to be picky at all, I just like doing my research and knowing my options]
