Wacom pens

Good day to you all, i was just wandering if any of you knew where i could find a wacom graphire 2 pen as mine seems to have broke

.. Ooh yeah, in the UK that is!

At a wacom shop ...*?*

But you have my sympathies, I wanted to do a sketch today but all the pens have been stolen here at my school. I bet if you can find the serial number it'll be an easy item to trace. On the wacom website you'll be able to figure out whether one pen works on another device. I have an Intuos2, they have a range of pens that work on it. They probably still have those for sale.

I think there are still companies selling pens for the Intous II.... I bought one from a company in australia about 6 months ago. Try a general web search...

Thanks for your replys! I've had a look on wacoms website and all they do it in euros

since we are already on this subject.. is there a great difference between the grapphire pens and the intuos pens? Didn't the intuos have a tilt function ? any one who can make a short review on the intuos?

btw, breaking the pen must suck.

Hi,

www.dabs.com are an official Wacom dealer, and stock spares:

but are listed as out of stock at present.

Nothing but praise for them, very quick and efficient.

Yes it has tilt functions, just about any spacial variable can be measured with considerable spectrum. They're a marvel. I haven't seen the difference between the two, but I'm sure the wacom website has pdf 's for download. You'll get a lot of info from just reading them.

Well good luck then .

If I remember correctly it has a lot more pressure sensitivity and overall sensitivity. A graphire having 512 dpi on the pen and an intuos having 1024. For smaller ones it matters I think. I have a huge one but I tend to try and use only the middle part of it, I might as well have gotten a smaller one.

i like working with small precise moves.. on my A6.. hm, i believe the best size would be A5 actually.. when using a 19" monitor
A4 must be too big :O and the A3 ones scares me!

I've got the A4 oversize. Nifty thing is that I put it on my lap with the keyboard on it so I have more freedom to move to anywhere I want. I have to anyway, because my desk has no room left after the two monitors and a case for the parts, eparts

Luckily I'm in really bad moods lately so I use more pronounced movements, it finally has a use.

I like my Graphire3...but I'll be getting an A5, as it is nice enough for me, I'm not a small motion type, I use contour type motion, very weird when sketching...However is the intuoso3 good? I might get that instead....9*12
