1  Screen Tablet malarky / Design issues / Re: Screen Protector Material options on: January 17, 2007, 04:59:36 PM
i dont believe that a matt glass could work, you'll not see anyhing at all, everything blurred!

i had an old 20" CRT monitor NEC Multisync 5D, it had a very good anti glare treatment called "silica coating".
it gave to the surface a fine matt aspect but the image was very well readable.
i don't know if there's someone able to reproduce this trearment.

i'll definitely go with tempered glass 2 or 3 mm thick i guess.
tempered glass is much stronger then ordinary one and more breakage resistant but in case it doesn't produce dangerous splinters, it crumbles in tiny pieces.
only one though afflicts me, the hardening (tempering) gives to the glass some polarization, i wouldn't this could interfere with the polarized light coming from the LCD display creating spots or halo. my though

bye... Vincenzo

I'm not sure if it is possible to cut tempered glass to size. Because it has tension in it, and would shatter into pieces if you try to cut it?
Maybe if you would get it (or cut) it in the right size, it would be an idea to put a sticky plastic foil underneath the glass, just in case it would break.

I was looking into a material that would be useful to protect the screen and tried to compare them.
This table was the result of that. There's no guarantee at all that it's right, but I thought it would be a nice start, to be followed by some personal experiences.
So please help me to make this table right, you can add whatever you find important

I took a look at that site for a moment, and some seem to be very close, but I'm not sure. Think I'll write them an e-mail with some pictures.
Besides that I took some pictures of about all of the labels on the lcd:

About the pen, the intuos 2 pen is not compatible. But most of the time it's cheaper to buy a small ADB tablet with a pen, rather than buying a new pen. I got one for just 7,50 euros (about $10?) that way.

I use SketchUp mostly for shadow- and shapestudies on buildings.
I could not find the Tokyo model on GoogleEarth, dut I'm sure it would look great!

Hi there!
Finally got (took) some time in between my schoolwork.
Here are some more percise dimensoins on the connector:

Did you hear anything from Gerhard yet? Or was he waiting for my mesuring?

I'm in a Architectur course too. (In the Netherlands it's called Higher technical school for engineering. It's a sort of pre-university)
Bud i'm using my tablet (an intuos1 a5) alot! Mostly because of RSI but it's very useful for drawing sketshes, and even if I would not have those RSI problems I still would  use my tablet most of the time.
I use it in Autocad, 3DsMax, Paint shop pro, Photoshop, SketchUp and for anything else.
I was using a Graphire1 before, but this intuos is way better.

I'm now working on my own cintiq ( And I really think I'll be using it alot.
And besides the great advantages of your own cintiq, It's mostly fun to build one yourself!

Wow great! this really rocks! (need I say I'm happy? Grin)
I've been looking trhough the digikey catalog, bud I could not find a matching one.
Hopefully Gerhard will find one!
I'll try to take some better mesures asap, but I'm really busy with my schoolwork right now

A 25 euro Cintiq is very cheap indeed!  Grin, I got lucky on a Dutch Ebay look-a-like

It is 2 rows of 50 connectors and it's 26mm wide

Here is a picture that's clearer than the first picture I think:

Hi there,

When I started buiding my Cintiq, I came across some problems.
So this is not realy a build log, but more a question (for now)
If people are intrested, I could post some more picts of my project progress.

I'm using a Philips 150B1 as a screen (I got it for free!), and a Wacom 12x12 digitizer tablet I bought for 25 euro's.

But like I said: I have a problem!
The ffc is too short, so I can't move the screen on to the active area of the tablet.
Here are some pictures to explain:

Is there a way to make an extension cable? Or are the people with brilliant ideas?
Here is a movie made with my cellphone, showing it in action:
