Looking to build a large version of my Lintiq;

http://forum.bongofish.co.uk/index.php?topic=1342.0



I bought a 2000FP that has an external power supply. I'll need to open it to check out how far it differs from the 1503FP:



And I got a hold of the 12x18 Intous Wacom tablet.:



I was able to score both separately for a total of under 300.00


Wacom Intuos Graphics Tablet  gd-1218-R  $169.50
2000FP 20" LCD Monitor                           $119.27

ha ha!

It's good to see another ambitious build !  Grin  Grin  Grin

Although I haven't done a smaller 15" build, I can tell you from my 22" build that you should do a lot of planning around the case.
Especially when it comes to supporting the monitor inside the case.
With everything mounted in the case mine weighs probably 20lbs. That's a lot of weight to securely fasten to a flimsy wacom case.
I would recommend NOT building the case out of fiberglass   Grin. I've spent weeks and lots of money just doing the finishing work of sanding and reapplying resin and sanding and reapplying resin and painting to get a smooth finish (and then stripping the paint and starting over because I didn't like the finish  Roll Eyes ) .  It's not really worth it.

If you are going to use the wacom case as a start, I would be glad to fabricate you a couple pieces of plastic to reinforce the areas where the monitor needs to mount to.  I wouldn't charge a fellow art-craftsman-bongofishian anything for the work or materials (assuming I have something lying around the shop), though I don't know how much shipping would be from me to you.  I live in Minnesota in the Un-unitied States of America  Tongue


Your first build turned out slick !   I bet you'll do well on this one !
Here's hoping for a jitter-less build !  Cheesy

Now that's grin inducing. Both the new build and Meta's kind offer

Spread the love  Grin

Well looks like its time to restart this. My sister had to move out of her place so I was cat sitting for her, but since she cant take the cat back I will be cat sitting indefinitely.


When I created the lintiq I had parts about everywhere. I'm a bit afraid that the cat will knock over a light or break a cable.

I'm going to try and open the monitor this week to check out the cables.

Hi Elin,
I am contemplating doing a build with the 2000fp (otherwise it will be the 1503fp), did you ever get a chance to take it apart?
Thanks
Matt
