I'm considering using a tablet notebook for my field work and was wonderring if any of you fine Revit users out there have experience with such a format that also uses Bluetooth for the laser measuring systems like the Leica? I'm currently running 6.1 on a 5 year-old laptop that is doing amazingly well for such a slow machine! Any light that y'all might shed on up-dated hardware would sure be appreciated. Thanks, John Adams JAG Architecture

I've been using Revit with a pen tablet for over a year and lucky enough to use a Wacom Cintiq tablet touch screen...similar to what you are describing except the 'PC' is still in a box next to me, for the last two months (a trial). I really like working "on screen" but it isn't for everyone. Everyone who watches me work first asks, "Doesn't your arm hurt reaching up to the screen"? The answer is, not mine, but yours might? Definitely see if you can arrange time with one before you buy. Or you can try a much less expensive pen tablet instead for awhile to see if you like pen based computing? I use a pen tablet at home for everything too...really like it. Mice feel "weird" now... Post edited on 2004-10-01 13:15:03

I am in the process of transitioning my life from mouse to tablet and am considering purchasing a Wacom Intuous tablet to use with Revit at an office.  Revit Architecture 2009 works with a tablet?  Is there any setup or settings to adjust in order to use a tablet with Revit?  Or is it just plug in and go?

I have used both a digitzer (or pen tablet, wacom etc) and a Tablet (the laptop) in revit and find them both acceptable.  It takes a little getting used to but is better for you.  Both work really well...

The Tablet is a little slower as you tend to cover some of the screen with your hand and there isn't much screen real estate for toolbars etc., but feels more natural.

With the digitzer i actually became quicker than i was with the mouse.  But only after I stuck my mouse to the desk on the left hand of my keyboard (i'm right handed) and used it to zoom and right click.  The only thing you have to get used to the eye\hand co-ordination, I suggest changing the settings of the tablet to be Pen-mode to Mouse-mode and make sure that the drawing area is set to the same ratio as your screen (wide screen etc.)

Great!  Thanks for your input.  I recently bought a tablet notebook computer which uses the wacom digitizer technology and am considering a wacom intuos tablet to hook up to a PC at work.  I am only starting to use this technology and am amazed and mystified why this isn't standard in the industry. ---maybe i just need to be patient.  

Again, thanks for your input!!!
