    N-Trig jitter is driving me nuts!

    Seems like the latest window update removed most of my jitter =/ Almost no jitter at all now. Did notice a slight increase in the pen lag though. Update details didn't mention any fix.

    N-Trig jitter is driving me nuts!

    I tried to shorten the nib a bit. I cut off around 1mm from the nib so the pen itself is actually 1mm closer to the screen now. I noticed a slight decrease in jitter, but not enough to have any major effect. Ordered a 2nd Pen and some more nibs that I'm gonna do some more experimentation with...

    Poll More Pen options?

    Let's face it. Microsoft released a Professional product with an average pen/stylus. Problems with jitter, tapering, hover lag etc, makes Surface Pro 4 look weak for professional use by artists. They jitter especially is a known issue that becomes more apparent when drawing slowly. I did a...

    N-Trig jitter is driving me nuts!

    UPDATE!, I tried using button/coin cell batteries in the Surface Pen. It didn't really work as expected. The pen didn't work but the Bluetooth eraser button did. I also tried pulling the nib out and then back in but only halfway in, so it was longer. Pen was still usable, but the jitter...

    N-Trig jitter is driving me nuts!

    After doing some digging into how the N-Trig technology works the there might be some quite simple upgrade to the pen. The technology itself uses an active pen on a passive digitizer, meaning the pen is generating an electromagnetic field that the digitizer picks up. Here's what I've found on...

    Broken Kickstand?

    I tryed another fix to replace the old broken kickstand. This time i used the hinge hold from the original kickstand and simply superglued them to a new plate of aluminum. Fit perfectly, and looks awesome. Planning to spraypaint this kickstand as well when i get a chance. Hope this can help...

    A long road of disappointment with Microsoft.

    Or why don't you plug the screen using something like this on USB 3.0 port? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dH6raQzCV3w

    A long road of disappointment with Microsoft.

    U need to get some kind of insurance, preferably something that covers theft or accidents, call the insurance company and say it fell over while connected with the cable and messed up the connector. That's what i would have done. This kind of thing is covered by my home insurance. Only few days...

    Broken Kickstand?

    Spent a couple of hours in the workshop trying to make the 3D printed kickstand stronger. Found a piece of sheet metal (i think it's steel or aluminum approx 0,5 mm thick) filed it to the right shape and glued the pieces together. Turned out really nice and strong. Tomorrow i'm gonna...

    Broken Kickstand?

    I just got the kickstand I 3D printed. Although the fit is perfect the rigidity of the plastic was not as strong as I expected. I think the only option will be 3D printed metal, although i'm keeping this on for now. It's doing the purpose, but i wished it was a bit more rigid. I'm gonna head...

    Broken Kickstand?

    Is anyone here able to provide me with measurments and detailed pictures of the Kickstand and Hinges for Surface, Surface 2, and Surface Pro 2, i can upload 3D printet replacements for those too. That would be really awesome because I'm not sure If and what the differences are between the...

    Broken Kickstand?

    Not a bad idea. I'll defenetly take a look at it, because even if the Surface 2 and Surface Pro 2, has 2 positions, I'm kind of missing a third even lower position that would be great for drawing with the Stylus on a tabletop. Placing the Surface flat on a table you kind of get an awkward angle...

    Broken Kickstand?

    Well, as long as the fit is perfect and it's durable enough I don't care if the material is different. I'm actually planning to spraypaint my kickstand to match the color of my touch cover, with my company logo on it as well. The kickstand broke off just close to the hinges, when I slipped and...

    Broken Kickstand?

    My kickstand for my Surface Pro broke a while back and no luck finding a replacemenet made me model a new kickstand in 3D using the exact measurements from the original one. A 3D printed replacement is now shipping from Shapeways. Can't wait to try it out. I'll probably make some more cool...
