    Default Calcomp VI and Wintab

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    I'm trying to setup Calcomp VI, Looking for suggestions. This is what I have found out.
    1. Calcomp do not have a driver for wintab 1.1 -lawsuite
    2. Can purchase Vtablet, but not USB support. Calcomp will not support Vtablet with the usb information.
    3. Autcad setup using tableworks:
    A. Calcomp driver as a mouse (no wintab)
    B. Define buttons using tableworks
    c. drawback-no menu area for commends.
    d. Can not define buttons in CUI.

    if any one have found a work around, or a solutions, please let me know.

    Thanks

    Hate to break it to you but there isn't one (after I beat this to DEATH last year. I had to return my newly purchased Calcomp VI because of)

    also told "Autodesk is not interested in supporting tablets moving forward"
    and without drivers....

    this was all a result of going 64-bit (Vista) btw.

    What is this CAD world coming to when a man (or woman) can't continue using his/her tablet?

    Suggestion: Find an "old" DB III on eBay or elsewhere and you're back in business as long as you use XP.

    I actually had a hard time returning mine, funny when the mfg. shot back that the unit had too much "wear n tear" to give me a full refund..... the co. I bought it from went to bat for me for the obvious reason.....


    (how could it have *any* wear n tear when I couldn't use it (at all) to begin with ? ? ? )

    The VTablet company does not exist anymore. Here is the good news, GTCO Calcomp has acquired the patents for WinTab 1.1 and are working on the new TabletWorks.
    It should be done in early 2016.


    Have a nice day - Robert

    A lot has happened since this thread was last posted to, almost 7 years ago.

    7 years - OK - I am not sure what is your point.

    I think Dana is hinting at thread necromancy. You've peaked my interest though as at one time had used to use a Calcomp DBIII digitizer but eventually gave it up when I could no longer find suitable drivers. I always preferred the use of a digitizing puck over a mouse due in part to the fact that my wrist and a portion of my lower arm was always supported by the digitizer since it was able to be positioned at an angle. We have had a few inquires this year about digitizer drivers if I recall correctly. I still have my board, puck and the old Tabletworks CD.
