The sunshade to this works great and Ive made 2 others since then. I'll try to get a nice photo of the backside. There is no template since I just cut it all by hand as I went.+1! Exactly what I was thinking of making...I'm having a devil of a time finding a commercial sunshade I'm happy with for my iPad Air with a case on it. A template would be great! Sometimes DIY is the only way to get just what you want....
Just noticed this was from back in Feb. How did the test work? Are you still using it?
Here is a link to more of the photos of the shade. Imgur: The most awesome images on the InternetGreat! Looking forward to seeing the photos. Picked up the foam core for the job last night.
I've got one of those flimsy leatherette ones I'll use as a reference while cutting the pieces. Looking forward to seeing your ideas for affixing the shade to the iPad/controller. Thanks!
Yeah I would try different things. The back brace took a few tried plus using the hot glue made all the difference is getting everything to stick together.Thanks Gizadog! That's actually very helpful. I like the structure in the back, think I'll shamelessly copy you, if you don't mind.
I'm thinking about angling the top of the shade about 70 degrees relative to the screen a la Tophat. What do you think? Do you think it might be more effective than 90 degrees? I guess the good thing is foam core is cheap, so I will probably build both and see what works best for me. But again, I appreciate you going to the trouble of posting those pictures, they do help.
