Tablet setup in Blender

NOTE: The DIGImend project maintainer is leaving the project in November 2016. Currently no work on supporting new tablets is done, and user support is done by community only. Replacement maintainers are welcome.

Blender is one of the most popular Open Source 3D graphics applications in the world. Aimed at media professionals and artists world-wide, Blender can be used to create 3D visualizations such as stills or broadcast and cinema quality videos. The incorporation of a real-time 3D engine allows for the creation of 3D interactive content for stand-alone playback.

Blender 2.6 Manual Introduction

In this tutorial you can learn how to setup your tablet, which uses the evdev driver, working in this software.

Blender 2.66 and above

This version was released on February 21, 2013.

Tablet setup

Blender is compatible with the evdev driver. There’s no need to do any device configuration. Your pen should just work in Blender.

Blender 2.65 and below

Blender versions 2.65 and below are not compatible with the evdev driver, so the pen’s pressure will not affect anything.

More information

You can find more information about Blender on the official website of the software.
