Wacom Intuos 5

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I'm new to this forum and new to product design. I'm starting a course at the University of Leeds in september.

 

I'm thinking about buying the Wacom Intuos 5 before I start to get some practice, and to use throughout my course.

 

I have a bit of experience with autoCAD and SolidWorks from college, and a small amout of experience with illustrator purely as a hobbie.

 

I was just wondering if it would be worth buying at this stage or if i should wait until I have a bit more experience with design software and a a more in depth knowladge of the design process.

 

Thanks

 

Matthew

I purchased a Intuous 4 Large for my Master and it was the best thing i ever did.

It takes allot of getting used to but once you get there is invaluable.

Sketching on paper and scanning in for presentations looks very poor.

The 5 is very expensive so consider the 4. Get your practice in with sketchbook pro and you'll never look back.

Use this site for tips. http://www.idsketching.com/
