I'm hard on my wacom transparent overlay

Postby Laura » Wed Aug 01, 2007 5:09 pm

This will be the third or fourth transparent overlay I've had to replace on this wacom. I'm pretty rough on the surface, and it's all pitted and scratched in the middle. Tried flipping it over, tried using a piece of paper taped over it; it's just time for a new one.

Do y'all have to replace your surfaces often? It takes me about a year to start a scratch and maybe two months from that point to really needing it replaced.

I ordered two -- hopefully I'll be ready for a new Wacom by the time I go through these...

I haven't replaced my overlay yet, but I think it's overdue.

Now the nibs, those are the things I've replaced several times already!

Gone through quite a few nibs, and the overlay for my old Intuos was ready to be replaced. Unfortunately, the rest of the Intuos died to protect the over from being replaced, necessitating the emergency purchase of the 6x11 Intuos 3, which is feel very neglected thanks to my Cintiq.

My 10 month old Cintiq has one tiny scratch... picked up the wrong pen (for Intuos, with an old nib that had a piece of grit on the end). When I used to use the Cintiq widescreen, the scratch (visually) irritated me, but now that I use it in portrait mode, I don't even see it

I just had to replace the nib again, too -- it was flattened into a nice angle and almost impossible to get out of the stylus! Haha.

So far, it's been:
3 transparencies
at least 6 nibs
a dozen or more grips of various types (foam, rubber, etc) -- the stylus doesn't have a rubber grip, it's the oldskool type, so I customize grips from other sources

Other than a hairline crack in the frame, it's still running strong.

I never replace the overlay, but I do go through about 2 nibs per year.

I have also managed to work the buttons loose on both of my styluses. Probably from having a twisty grip when making little flicking moves with the pen and torquing them out of the rubber grip.

You should really really think about getting a newer tablet! The "doctor's grip" on the new styluses is GREAT. Possibly better than your jury-rigged grip.

Getting an Intuos II did wonders for my hand. Overwork was giving me a really feeble grip, and I was worried I might end up with "inker's claw" down the line. Now I can work all day and not be affected.

Yeah, I know, I should. It's on my list. The rubber grips have helped immensely, even if they look silly, so I'm sure the built-in ergonomic grip on the newer stylus would be even better.

I wish the styli were backwards-compatible, and I could buy an Intuos2 or 3 stylus for my Intuos. Oh well. I wonder if I can juryrig the intuos stylus guts into an intuos2 barrel? Hmm...

As far as I understood it any intuos pen works for any intuos tablet? I had to replace the pen (after 7 years the one on my graphire1 snapped in half, silly brittle plastic). I called Wacom and was told that they are backwards compatable within the model types, though a graphire pen wouldn't ever work on a intuos.

Really? I thought they weren't. I'm going to call Wacom... no sense in replacing the tablet if I don't have to (unless I get that second monitor or a widescreen monitor, in which case the 6x11 would be a smart purchase).

The Hories clued me into a website that sells replacement Wacom parts at good prices:

Just took a quick glance at it myself.... I'm going to need an overlay soonish.

I have some scratches on my overlay, but nothing too bad. The grip on my stylus, however, is loose and falling apart.

I'm pretty gentle on mine. I have my pressure sensitivity set for pretty light to get nice fat variations in strokes and brushes. I have some good long "dents" but I don't use my tablet nearly as much as a full time colorist.

Trish, that's who I ordered my overlay from! I've ordered from them before. Great resource. :)
