Howdy brother @wralex!

Well that's a bit complicated.  I bought my screen and screen frame from Simpits out of New Zealand.  Looking back I paid way too much for what it is and I had a horrible experience with the company owner.  DON'T DO BUSINESS WITH THIS GUY!  Not only was the quality lacking, but parts of the stand and hardware were missing and he never made it right.  He also took a long time to communicate with me regarding the issues with the order.   :grumbl:

I'm not sure where to get the screen itself, but you might be able to buy a large piece of lexan and mix up a batch of black pearl paint and thus make your own setup.  If I'm not mistaken Kukki may offer the stand made in aluminum which is better than the wood version I have.  Unless you want to make that yourself as well as it shouldn't be that difficult to manufacture.

That may not be what you wanted to hear, but it is what it is!

Good luck,

Blaze

I can't say bad word about simpit. I bought simpit warp and don't have problems. When I have problem with software i don't have problem with communication with simpit company. They help me very quickly.

That is super good for you my friend, but I also had a lot of issues with him and had to scrap my system due to bad quality and missing parts.

I dont want anything with him to do, he never sent me the missing parts and was very hard to get to reply.

just my experience with him  :bat:

Yes @mac.pel , the software worked just fine.  It was the hardware that was the problem.  I wish the only issue WAS with the software since that's the cheap end of the equation.  I just don't recommend anyone buying the wrap screen from them, that's all.  The funny thing is that Simpit to my knowledge only sells the software, they don't own or develop it, interesting.....
