As I feel a certain need to get praised (kind of), I post three more
drawings made with my "iQs" (mostly, the UBiQ-2/Mini-Q combo)

I have seen that the latest iteration of Apple's Macintosh breaks the driver
for the Intuos 3 - as a result, Intuos 3 prices are falling, and I snatched a
PTZ-1231 for less than 40 Euros (with shipping), as well as a faulty Cintiq 12WX
(mostly because of the pen, and maybe I can resurrect it - or place the 11.6" IPS screen
I have around over its sensor board).

I will check things once the pieces are in my hands... after all, I already have two stripped 22" to test
over the PTZ-1231, so I can wait before buying yet another monitor.

"Do you know if I can get a flickering free display, buy a large Intuos, and place it?"

Yes, you can - you probably would have to modify the frame of the LCD to let the pen signal go though (it is the "manually difficult" part of the game, where it is very easy to let speckles of dust slide in and create shadows or light spots) but some screens have already no metal in the signal's path and require no modification (mostly up to 15.4" /15.6" laptop screens).

That said, it probably won't be as good as the Wacom (but we have seen some pretty turdy ones from them too) as the drivers of the Intuos have no provision to filter out the noise added by the LCD and, as a result, the pen position is almost always affected by "jitter".

There is a 3rd part software "stroke filter" that can do much to solve this issue , Lazy Nezumi, that can go a long way to make a somewhat jittery machine usable, and in a way it is better to have it as it exposes the way the noise is filtered so that one can trim it to its necessity, and even change it while it draws . 

I myself have a 22" built on an Intuos 2 XL with a LG IPS224v (alas, the Intuos 2 XL is one inch shorter than what would be needed to completely cover the screen, so I have a 2cm of unreachable screen), and a 19.5" with another Intuos 2XL and a LG 20MP48a.

The more stable of the two is the second - it has a 5 cm (2 inches) vertical "crazy band" on the right, where the pen fritzes a bit, but the rest of the screen is remarkably jitter-free till the last cm on the left that is a bit wonky.

However, the marriage between any given digitizer and a screen is, really, a matter of luck (unless you follow a "recipe" from someone that already tried, with success, a given combination).

Roam through the site, and see if some of the examples in the "success" section attracts you.    
If your friend's Intuos 4 DiY is a "TabletMod" inspired build, with the AUO BW154P01 lcd, that is one mighty bad screen to work extensively (it was my first build), but someone made a similar build with the screens for Apple Macbooks (and a bespoken led backlight unit) that is a much better view.

Unfortunately, I do not really have suggestions to make.

It has been a honour contributing my tiny bits to this place, I have learned a lot here and managed to build some machines that really made my drawing life a lot better and easier.

I hope the forum will survive at least as an archive, as I am not done completely with building these things and it still has information I may need.

But that is, admittedly, me being selfish and greedy.

It's been a good run, 12 years, but with negligible traffic I think it's time to admit that the forum has finally come to the end its useful life.

I'm proposing to keep it around as an archive for a while, so that people can still get inspiration etc. but not to have it as an active thing.

I'm open to other suggestions...

Hello guys.
I bought a wacom 22 and im so unhappy with the screen quality. I refunded and i was thinking making by myself.
The only big big downside is that i cant see monitors that ise pwm flickering. All wacom display prodcut seems to use this tecnology. Do you know if i csn get a flickering free display, buy a large intuos, and place it?

My friend shown me the process of his own intuos 4 diy cintiq and its very good to do , i love his screen quality! (But his flicker xd)
Also do you know if i can get this in big size? Minimun is something around 19 inch .. maximum of 24 thanks!

Maybe it can help you

Note: if your build is a 15.4" on the Intuos 4 large, you likely will have to work only on the screen projection tab in the driver.

If it uses a 15.6", then the video represents correctly how to calibrate it.

Teky: even after posting 3 times, you completely forgot to tell us what other "pad model" this pen was working on. This would help us understanding what's going on a lot better.  The UD-* series uses "Penabled" (tm) pens, one of the most common (old) Wacom tech. Lot of pens from old laptop uses the exact same technology.  A picture of all your gear would also help.

Teky, You have working pad and compatible working pen. Next You have UD-1212-R that can't see pen.
There are two possible problems. Your UD-1212-R may be broken but I think that the pen You use isn't compatible with UD-1212-R. There are many different pens and they are compatible with specific tablets, not with all tablets available. You need to search for specific pen or try out few old pens. Hope Your tablet is working and You can find working pen.
