Wacom has unveiled Intuos a 3D solution that provides all the tools to create print-ready three-dimensional designs on a PC or Mac computer. Called Intuos 3D, it is priced at Rs 17,975 and consists of tablet, pen, downloadable Pixologic Z BrushCore software.
The Intuos 3D solution is available online on Amazon and Wacom websites.
The company claims that Intuos 3D’s intuitive pen works seamlessly with Pixologic’s powerful ZbrushCore software. The battery-free, cordless and pressure-sensitive Intuos pen combines with ZbrushCore to emulate the same feel and feedback that one gets when working with traditional brushes, markers or ceramic tools.
Users seeking on-demand 3D prints can send their models to online service Shapeways for printing. For those seeking to publish their work, Sketchfab’s web-based platform and community are accessible to Intuos 3D owners.
The Intuos 3D solution is claimed to be easy to set-up and includes state-of-the-art video tutorials to help customers.
“3D design has stepped out of just being the buzzword in India. Every day we come across some extremely interesting stories of 3D prototypes being created, by the very talented industrial design pool in India. The Wacom Intuos 3D tablet will definitely come handy for this set of designers. Also, the animation and VFX industry designers would also find this very useful. We have quite aggressively priced this in India, and have already received hundreds of pre-booking orders for it,” says M Nanda, President and MD, Wacom India.
