The first version of my tabletop projector table, demonstrated with the Pathfinder RPG Beginner Box.
The table has a size of 180cm X 140cm, the projection surface is 100cm X 60cm; with the current projector setup, a "screen" diagonal of about 100cm can be achieved.
The table has foldable legs and can be split apart in the middle to be transported in 2 parts.
The projection surface is currently just plain paper; this will soon be replaced with 2 layers of acrylic glass and paper sandwiched between them. It will then be sturdy enough to carry the weight of bigger miniatures.
The projector setup is quite simple, a DELL mini LED projector pointing downward at a slight angle (~ 5°) at a mirror, for a total projection distance of about 120cm. The mirror on the ground is currently much bigger than necessary and will be replaced by a smaller one (40cm X 30cm will suffice).
I will be using MapTool to display the maps.
- replace projection surface with acrylic glass
- use smaller mirror on the floor
- paint table surface (black?)
- put opaque curtains below the table around the projection surface to reduce stray light from below
