Has anyone tried SolidWorks with the Tablet PC

2009-07-30, 10:56 AM

Hello,

 

I have been trying to find out if the X series Tablet can handle SolidWorks 3D CAD adequately or Adobe Photoshop, etc. So far I am basically getting the assumption that we are years away before this becomes a reality. I need the features of a Tablet but I was hoping that I can use Solidworks on a limited basis (I would dock this tablet) to a larger monitor. I also have a desktop that would do most of the CAD work or large part assemblies.

 

Thanks!

I guess unfortunately we are still years away before we have a tablet PC with adequate (specs, processor, graphics card) that can do 3D CAD or photoshop, etc....

I have used both Solidworks and Photoshop (7 through CS3) just fine on my X60T. Wasn't exactly the snappiest experience ever but they worked.

I have used solidworks on my tablet for a while now. Works fairly well. Not mindblowing but good enough. I am sure the more complex the component is you are building the slower it will respond.
