1  Screen Tablet malarky / Successful builds! / Re: Monoprice tablet on: April 07, 2014, 02:01:59 AM
Have a similar build, except with a bigger monoprice tablet, and it jitters like crazy on some parts of the screen when I have a piece of acrylic on top of the LCD. Does anyone have any suggestions for this?

I have a couple. Sorry for being away for so long. cut the nib on your pen to half the size to compensate for the extra distance the acrylic makes. There is also an app on here that reduces jitter. You will not get rid of ALL jitter. Just be warned. It's there even on normal tablets.

How would you calibrate this thing if you have a very small screen of 5 inches? Do the drivers have a ui to do that? I'm very interested in this project but with a smaller screen.

Well, that would mean the tablet is far lager than the screen so there would be some issues, but the drivers do allow fo you to have an "active portion" of your screen just as if your screen were bigger than the LCD. It would work both ways.

Hope this helps,

Apologies for the slow response. I've been away for a while. Yes, that's correct. I did not disassemble the tablet. The LCD I used is about 4mm with the protective acrylic sheet over it adding less than 1mm. One trick you might try to reduce the height of the pen is to cut the nib shorter. that may give you a MM or two to play with.

I know that this may be a touch off topic (I'm very tired) but I thought that this might be helpful for those who love hot keys. I use an old Gravis Gamepad Pro USB controller with a free application called JoyToKey. I keep it in my left hand as I draw with my right. It's VERY handy if you're poor and trying to keep your build as close to zero dollars as possible. You can find JoyToKey here http://www-en.jtksoft.net/

I apologize for not using the metric system. Damn these U.S. school! Tongue My acrylic is 2.36 mm just for the record.

Ben, about the NYJTouch controllers... you can send Christina the model number of you bord and she can actually tell you which controller that will work if any. Great response times, cheap and VERY helpful. Her email is christina@njytouch.com Tell her Frank sent ya. Wink

In response to the Yiynova tip, the newer U models are pro. With my Monoprice build I got SO close to no jitter before the board went dead (not an issue with the build just a short in the board itself). Small jitter near the edges of the board that were easily squashed with LazyNezumi. Shielding, grounding and the right LCD are SO important. Like pntbll248, if you go this route, you will have all my help and knowledge at your disposal as well. Good luck! ~Abey

Any time. =)

No, it's not safe. Most likely the videos you have seen are tests before finally putting the project together. They do it to test for jitter and whatnot. Most of us use a thin acrylic sheet to protect the LCD. The parallax can be adjusted for... and will most likely have to be regardless if you have acrylic. My cover is .093 in. and I have no problem with it warping. The thickness of the cover has nothing to do with the sensitivity unless your pen is too far away from the sensor.

Hope this helps,
Abey

Alright, pntbll. We're getting more converts. Let's see what we can do about getting one of those LCDs to me and we'll do the whole thing together. Won't hurt me to have 2 DIY Cintiqs laying about the joint. Wink

I do not, good sir. I was fortunate enough to not have to extend anything. Seems I got off rather easily. Tongue But I will do some forum digging and googling to see if I can be a bit more than useless until someone in the know can help.

On the right, that looks like a burn from a short caused by the water. This thing still power on?
