[Project] triple-screen mount - Page 4

post #31 of 100
@OP:

Just out of curiosity did you contemplate what the base would be like if you didn't bolt the stand straight to the desk?

Because I'm looking at something like you built, and I am not sure if I were to build one (like yours) that I could make a base smaller than 14" x 14" (to spread out the weight at the mounting point of the vertical post). I like the idea of drilling a hole in a desk for the stand to be mounted to, but the school (and my parents for that matter) wouldn't like it too much if I started drilling holes into desks

Great job again. Definitely going to have to try this with dual monitors over the summer time

I'm sure you could make some sort of stand that would support the weight. But you would need to have the vast majority of the surface area to the front of the monitor, because that's where the center of mass would be (due to the side monitors being forward of center). If you could get it stable, the stand might be a little too far forward. In other words, it might negate the whole reason of the build, to clear up desk space. The best alternative I can see is going with a wall mount. The back of the center monitor would have to be tweaked a little to allow for the tee-pipe and also the bracket for the mount. I think that'll be my next little project...

also, @ billbartuska, I'm diggin that design. well done

Nice job on the creativity.
I may do this for dual 24"s when I get my 2nd one. I refuse to pay $100+ for a stand for dual monitors.


+rep for you!

Wow - How did I miss this. That's a great job there. I always wanted to make a stand for my dual monitors. Hmmmmmmm. Did you get that Patent yet? Runs off to the local patent office.

Absolutely brilliant.

I just keep coming back and looking. It's so ... tempting to buy a 3rd!!!

Question.

How do you adjust your monitors? The side monitors look like they would just fall downward with those brackets on there.

I had to adjust them when I mounted them. Each side took a few times of trial and error before i had the perfect spacing. And to keep them from falling downward, it was just a matter of getting the U-straps in the back tight enough.

I was looking into getting one, but then I saw how expensive they are. I just use SoftTH right now, and it's a little bit of work to get it set up at first, but it's free and it works fine for how much I game in triple-screen.

I'm going to build one of these, just like that, to go with my new desk.

Looks very, very nice. Love how clean it is.

What size monitors are you using there?
