Been doing a bit more on getting my perspex into the thing. But I need motivation! Motivate me!

I wanna get the insert done tommorrow, remount the Inverter inside the back case, and extend the wires. And call the whole thing really finished.

I got the screen done properl. All thats left too do is to put teh casing on the back. 15min job. Its pretty good the olde perspex inset but it got a fw scratches in the process, but I have some Tcut which I can use to polish them out. It does work as Ive done it on DVD's.

Heres some pics, also this is the secondry postion it works in,this is the true drawing postion cause you cant really draw in the upright postion.






PS It looks better in the flesh, with the camera flash it looks like its all dirty when its not. Also my top sticker got ripped off which is that diry white bit.

That looks awesome! Why is it upside down though?
I have the same Intuos 3 A4 tablet and I'm wondering how hard this would be to build if one knows nothing about this sort of stuff?

You can use it either way up, you can flip the whole screen and tablet mode for stand up mode, or flat mode for real drawing. Just flick back a few pages to see it working the other way up.

Its not especially hard in regards techincal matters, but a lot of fabrication went into it, lots of work in that dept.

Aweful news guys, I got up this morning and put it on, and a whole load of pixels have died along the bottom edge and one side. Its basically fucked, so new screen. 3rd one. I think this one was on its way out due to the first pixel dying after only a couple of hours use.

Dont worry thou, I wont be stopped, Id also like to get an extra Intuos cover of Naspc to try polishing it out rather than a Acrylic insert.

sorry to hear about another fucked up monitor.. but nice build dude

I was thinking it would be cool if you just attached the laptop directly to the bottom of the chemstiq so its just one bulky object and use a usb keyboard insted of the inbuilt laptop one..then again you may not want that kinda build..

but damn nice non the less.

Dont worry fellers, I shall take it in my stride, Im going to add more shielding to the screen this time around as I still got super click at the top edge, and also just make sure its all perfect. And it allows me to hide the CCFC wires which I couldnt do before with out taking it all apart.

Chems ::

I'm really interested in doing something much like you have.  Is there any chance you could take some pictures of the sides and back of your build.

Thanks and Great Job!

Thanks :: M
