    Make Your Own Cintiq

    I found some sweet stuff on the web on how to make a cintiq without spending 2600 dollars.
    This seems easiest. Just an Intuos and a projector.
    This seems difficult and tedious but if your devoted then go for it.
    I'd love to see if any of you made one.

    So Bhrazz, can you show a video of your homemade Cintiq? I'd love to see it in action. The photos are looking cool, I actually like the industrial back design with all those screws

    I'll make a quick list for the pros and cons.

    Is better if you don't drink anything while you use your cintiq. Because of the place it take.

    It take a lot of place.

    You can't sit the way you want.

    When you format you need to re-ajust the screen/wacom, it can take up to 1hour.

    If you are a shortcut user like me... You won't like it very much...

    however you can:

    Paint directly on the screen, which make more natural stroke than a real wacom.

    It is fun


    To be honest I use it from time to time but I prefer a regular wacom. This is just my opinion. It was a nice project to do. You really need to try it to see if you love or not.

    Next time I plug it in, i'll make a video...
