Quote from: RayS on December 28, 2021, 10:44:18 PMI went the DIY route but got some very good results.For the frame, I first calculated the radius (Circular screen)...Then built a 6 foot router arm with a pivot point on one end and a router on the other....Then cut 4 round frames. Inside diameter is 5'11 inches, outside diameter is 6'1 inches....Then routed a groove into all 4 rounder frame guides to hold the formica sheets. (4'x8' formica sheets (x2)...then cut/added vertical frame supports...Then slid the formica sheets through the grooves to make 2 semi-circular screen sections, creating a 210-degree circular screen.Once assembled, both sections got a few coats of 18% grey screen paint. Using vertical supports floor to ceiling, both sections were mounted and aligned.All told, the cost was around $400 with the most expensive part being the screen paint at $220.The DIY route allows me a 210-degree wrap-around view, with a 4-foot vertical viewing area. This has sometimes given me motion sickness in rough weather or pronounced ground ops.
