Hi everyone. I just registered and I would like to share something with the community. I took a wacom intuos 3 board and a dell 15" lcd monitor and combined them to make a DIY Cintiq. I call it the never ending amount of fun!
One thing I love about artrage is the freedom. One thing I hate about tablets is the precision. I like to see what I am doing but there was just no way in my budget to pay for a 21" Cintiq. They offer smaller models but I found them too small for heavy work.
So I searched online to find the right monitor and craiglisted my way into a good deal on an intuos 3. The total price was less than $220.00 for this setup.
I tore down the monitor and opened up the wacom. The top shell of the wacom can be sanded down smooth then clear coated with a urethane. Granted I lost my buttons/touch pad on the left side, the right side works just fine. I really don't have a use for the buttons with artrage.
If anyone has any questions please feel free to ask.
