    I everyone using the Graphire 3? Is anyone using the Intuos2 or the Cintiq? Aside from price, which is better and why? I've never used one, so reading details from the website doesn't really do it for me.

    The graphire is fine for Revit and most cad work. The others are bigger and are generally for more artsy programs, where fine, fiddly bits of work need to get done and the larger palette helps. For the type of stuff we are doing, less hand movements means less fatigue and the smaller tablet is good for that. I would highly recommend against the the other tablets.

    By the way, for those of you wondering (probably none...) Wacom is pronounced WOCK-em.

    I looked at the Intuos - twice the price for the same size pad. The Intuos has twice as many levels of pressure sensitivity which won't do anything for me in Revit. It also has customizable tablet commands along the top of the tablet. I can't imagine why I want to go back to 1980's style digitizer input? The one thing I was coveting about the Intuos was that it comes with a soft grip on the pen. Ahhhhhhh - coushie pen grip.....

    As far as the Griphire 2 vs. the Graphire 3 - the $40 - $50 you can save is probably worth it. The one thing I like about the Graphire 3, and that I am not sure if the Graphire 2 has it, is the "mouse mode" on the pointer. With the pen is on "mouse mode" having the smallest size tablet is not essential because you can pick the pin up and reposition it just like a mouse. I may exchange my 4x5 for the next size up that way I can more effectively use painting and sketching programs.

    thanks guys!

    first chance I get, I am going to run out and get one!

    since I've gone to dual monitors, my forearm has been getting numbness. I blame it on the fact that I am stretching over to the other monitor. The tablet would be a great aid to this problem.

    Actually, now that I think about it, since 95% of my work is on Revit, I am going to stick with the smaller 4x5 pad. Now if I could just find the perfect keyboard.....

    I am using the Intous 2 tablet since I (and my firm) already owns one for Photoshop, Freehand and Architectural Studio work. Yes its features are useless in Revit but if you are using any of the above programs it i worth the extra money. The main feature that I use (again not for Revit) is the multiple pens. Each pen is uniquely identified so that the behavior is different. I have 4 pens: brush, pencil, airbrush, and stamp. I use 2 pens in freehand for pen vs freehand sketch. The bottons are programmed different for the different features of the tools.

    Just a thought though. It would be great if Revit had the ability to recognize the tools as well. Just think a wall pen, a floor pen and a roof pen. LOL Just kidding

    The graphire2 has this feature. In fact, so far as I can tell, the graphire 2 has everything the 3 has and more. I bought one of the 3's when they came out and was disappointed. The only good thing about it is that the pen can be held in the tablet, but I still prefer the 2.

    We could also look to replace the mouse...
