And what exactly you want from us? Our opinion if this is beautiful or how can this be done?

There are much better ways to make a pro-like panel using the same materials as you did. But i really do not get your question and of course, i can understand nothing of what you write (but this is no problem i guess)

In my humble opinion this SUCKS bad! (sorry) If you want to get ideas look at modded pc cases.

Where is it going to be used anyway?

First, why you lied to me and you told me that it was nice. Ok ,you are kind , but i do not want from you to be kind.I want you realist.
This  is ( again )  for a home automation  .It is the service pack of my first project ( you remember security alarm , irrigation , etc ) but here i have remote control  with mobile phone .

As i can see (correct me if i'm wrong) it's A4 size, i believe that the 6-7 leds you have can "squeezed" in much lesser space and more elegantly. It's not a mater of functionality but aesthetics, if it's ok for you then it's ok for us. There are boxes (plastic or metal) in the market that can hold all  your stuff and the same time been nice. If you can draw (pc or hand) how you imagine it we can recomend something more, that is if you are interested of course.

Yes ok, i would never put something like this in moy house. It is not hard to make it look better, much better, but you need to work with other programs, not draw programs but something like gimp or hpfotoshop. This will give you a pro-look to your contruction.
Consider that this is an in-house automation and not an automation for ships... And inhouse automations must have less buttons, more color, and they just can't have industrial material. This is my opinion.

What i suggest, is a 100-150 euros PC with a 12'' monitor (can be found for 40-50 euros from ebay) with a 25-30 euros touch screen transparency and a cheap (less than 50 euro) PCI I/O module (it has MORE ports that you need) and you make something that is cheap AND IT FUCKING ROCKS!!!!!

It will have more that you can imagine, your light controls, your alarm, your musik box, your email client, your task reminder, your woman replacement ( :P :P :P)... That's my counter-suggestion.

If you really want something like this you just made, you can make a better out-looking surface with NOT, NEVER, NO, NIE, NICHT, NIET, not LED and switches. Insted, use some imagination man. Don't be brutal. Use touch switches, use backlights, use plastic. Ask here. Someone will answer you.

Is serafino still alive?  ???
Title: Re: tell me your opininon
Post by: kam on August 07, 2008, 13:57:11 PM
I think he is on vaccations..
Title: Re: tell me your opininon
Post by: serafino on August 31, 2008, 19:35:15 PM
Yes i was in vaccation .
Ok  i designed this fonts like that because the operation of this project will be made from a man who is 65 years old and he is not specialist with electronics general. So it should be very simple with simple switces and simple leds.

This makes more sense... For a 65yold man, this is art  ;)

I am happy because you understand what is the difficulty level of this case.

Post by: kam on August 31, 2008, 21:04:17 PM
Of course. It is the size that matters  ;D

It's a plc based automation, am i correct? I don't see where the "need" of an operator fits in.  :)
Since is automated what to control?
Title: Re: tell me your opininon
Post by: serafino on August 31, 2008, 22:02:10 PM
To control boiler , burner , irrigation and house alarm.
Title: Re: tell me your opininon
Post by: spic0m on August 31, 2008, 22:42:13 PM
All those i suppose are controlled from the plc, the old man where is needed i can't understand.
