Nevermind my rambling earlier. :)
Looks good tho! 400 SEK for the mirror sounds like a bargain, hope I get something similar when I visit my glass shop. Do you know how thick the glass will be?
Yeah I have no idea what they’re talking about first. After a few further questions they linked me to the correct size but still with glass. Seems like smaller sizes need it while larger doesn’t…?
I also realized that the touch screen prices has gone up quite a lot lately, dammit. 1300SEK for the one I need. Oh well.
“Ingen minns en fegis” :)
So I’m looking for a 22" (16:10 aspect ratio) touch frame for my build. I’ve found ONE on Aliexpress which only has 2 touch points (not a deal breaker) but up to 15ms in response time. That seems a bit much, but maybe manageable?
It looks like 21.5" is a much more supported frame but that would look odd on my mirror so the option is to stick with the 22" frame:
Or try to get a new 21.5" monitor?
What are your thoughts?
Great to hear how it works! First time with a touch frame/panel for me so I’m a bit nervous.
This is what they sent me:
“Thanks for your inquiry. Yes, 27 inch and above size , we can send without glass. 21.5inch and 24inch, We need to send glass.”
Really doesn’t tell why but I guess it doesn’t matter then… :D
I’m about to pull the trigger on the IR touch frame but not really sure how thick it is. The description says it’s about 8.7mm, do you remember if that is somewhat correct for your panel? I don’t always trust Chinese specifications. :D
Feels like the whole mirror frame needs to be quite thick to keep everything in place. The screen I have with the boards on the back is about 5.5cm already, adding the touch frame and mirror glas to that will make it REALLY thick and large…
I know there’s slimmer screens out there but ~5-7cm depth might be what most of us have?
Really nice work! I would like to know some more about your hardware, especially mirror type (seller, price etc) and what type of touch panel you’re using.
Still in the planning stage of my build but since I’m doing all the software myself I still have some time to sort everything out. :D
Nice to see a fellow Swede on here! :)
The build looks good, I’m currently sketching my mirror frame to know what to buy and it looks somewhat like your build. Seems like you used a regular baseboard with a smaller rounded board on the top inside?
Also, how do you like the mirror from mdpsupplies and how much did you pay for it? Been looking for ages on what mirror to buy but haven’t found that much here in Sweden, mostly from the UK and Germany.
