    Wait there's both an LVDS and eDP connector on the main board? I'm not too sure how it'll handle both being connected. I'm using external controller boards to control my boards.

    As for how you should make it, I originally wanted to do a sliding design but it'd make it much more thicker than I wanted so I went with this design as it's much easier to do.

    I just needed to manually enable the internal graphics with nvram editing.

    Holy crap that's cool! Wish my laptop had more internal display connectors. Wouldn't need these external circuit boards and power supply.
    Do eDP splitters exist? Something like an MST hub but using eDP connectors.

    In theory, you could convert eDP to DP, then grab a MST hub, then convert it all back again. Thats a lot of work, but then again you've gone this far

    Booooo Im practically already doing that. I meant taking the eDP connector on my laptop motherboard and making act like 3 eDP connectors so I could just wire all screens directly to my laptop. No need for external batteries or display cables.

    UPDATE:
    The final prints are done!

    Unfortunately, I broke the panels again so I have to order more. Even more sad times is that this virus has make panel prices skyrocket. Before I got each panel at about £50 and now they're around £100 at the lowest and I've seen some at £200 :|

    Very. And if they ever break, I can just use a stronger material to print them with
