Hi, I'm starting this thread because shielding and grounding are pretty important parts of most peoples' builds and we don't seem to have a dedicated thread yet. Wouldn't call myself an expert on this, but hopefully we can get some good info as pertains to shielding and grounding DIYTIQ's here in a more centralized location. Was thinking along the lines of specific techniques, shielding products, etc.. that people find useful for this project.

Will update this post if we have some solid info to put here. Smiley

The copper foil tape would be the best solution, but I would guess it might work out expensive. The conductive cloth fabric tape should work almost as well, and is probably cheaper.

The aluminium wouldn't work for magnetic interference, but would be good for stopping certain types of radiation. Not quite so good for shielding a wacom but useful for traversing the Van Allen Belts.
