View Full Version : Mid-size display design complete

Here you go:

This design is just under 7' high as measured from the bottom of the mirror cell frame to the top of the screen support structure.
The mirror cell is 150" wide as measured from the outside edges.

You'll note that the back end of the screen support structure appears to hang off in space. That's exactly what it's doing. The section of the mirror cell that belongs there is under active patent. If you want to build this (or the other displays), you'll have to review the patent and come up with your own implementation of it. Unfortunately, I can't find my reference folder that's got the patent # you'll need to reference. If I haven't posted it in a few days, please holler and remind me! :D

This is where the design process will stop and I'm going to move on to the 737 design.

Great :D Any news on the 737 design?

Due to patent issues, there won't be one. Not until 2017 when the patent on the feature used, expires.

Wayne & I did a single 737 design for a friend. His build log is around here somewhere. :)
