I'd really like to make a LCD for my Shuttle to fit its 3.5inch bay. Trouble is Im having trouble finding a module that will fit?
I've been checking out Matrix Orbitals site but there seems to be a bewildering array of displays and I admit to knowing next to nothing about these things, though Im sure I will soon!
I'd basically just like a *insert highest number possible given bays dimensions (90mmx20mm?)* x two-line back-lit (blue preferably) LCD that would fit in a 3.5inch bay. Could someone recommend me a Matrix Orbital module that would fit my requirements? Does one even exist, surely it must?
Before someone mentions it, I know Crystalfontz do a 3.5inch LCD bay kit but I don't like it and would rather make my own.
The other problem I imagine having is cutting out the hole for the display panel in the bay plate and getting the cut looking really professional? Im not sure I'd be up to the task with the equipment (& skill!) I have, basically a Dremel. Does anyone know of companies that will make cuts like this if you supply the dimensions?
Any help appreciated,
