Regarding the characteristics that can make this tablet an ideal complement, it should be noted that it is sensitive to pressure, which in turn gives a greater sense of realism to the 'sculpt'digitally. Within the package that we will receive when acquiring this graphic tablet, we will find elements such as the Intuos 3D tablet itself, Pixologic's 3D design software, ZBrushCore, a version based on the already more than popular ZBrush, as well as integration with Sketchfab and Shapeways.
