Do I need a separate license to run solidworks on wacom tablet?
is wacom tablet windows OS system?
if it's android or ios then i'd say no. Unless u would try online version in browser.
I tought wacom tablets are used for solidworks like a drawing/pointg devices.
Wojciech Paterski I think that it is LCD Wacom tablet.
David Glover Probably its no possible. Graphic system (chipset) in this tablet will not meet the requirements. This equipment is for 2d graphic not for advanced cad programs.
I think your question is backwards since the Wacom is an input device. SWX isn't really a graphics program so IDK if you can use this device. However, if you can make the Wacom act like a mouse, puck, etc. then I don't see why you couldn't use it. I would hazard a guess that this is more a MS-Windows issue than anything to do with SWX.
Jim you re wrong. Now exist somethings like this:
But I'm afraid there might be a problem with the graphics system. And the processor is also not a demon.
David Glover Its like notebook, and if you have any SW licence you must transfer it. If not you must buy, but Like I wrote. For me its not for SW.
so efectivelly like a MS surface - notebook/laptop without keyboard
in that case it should work on it.
The 16" one has an i7-8559U (2.7 - 4.5 GHz), 16Gb RAM and a Quadro P1000. That's going to handle a good amount of SW usage. Not cheap for those specs if we were just talking about a laptop / desktop but given all the other Wacom goodness baked in it starts being a bit more palatable. With the Quadro it will certainly be a step better than an MS Surface.
In that case it will be OK In that case it will be OK. You have two options: Transfer licenses or as wrote Scott Perman the license online
£3000 that's overkill.

Krzystof, no, you are wrong. He asked about the Wacom Tablet not the Wacom computer.
In fairness, I'd still refer to their computer as a tablet. Colloquially anything vaguely iPad-shaped gets labelled as a tablet.
Jim Riddell In the past, the tablet was a input device. For many years, tablets have a display, processor, RAM, hard drives, operating system. Now when you type in Google: tablet Fujitsu, Itronix, Microsoft you will find out that I am right. There are still lossy tablets that sometimes suggest misunderstandings like this.
Krzysztof Szpakowski I guess the difference here is that I am a trained engineer. We work with specific measurements and analysis based on facts. We don't 'read between the lines' for what someone 'may' have meant. Words have meaning, there is no ambiguity if specific terms are used. There was no misunderstanding. You assumed and did not answer the question that was actually asked. Now if the questioner comes back with a different question or realizes that they asked the wrong question in the first place then a real engineer can adapt and respond accordingly.
I don't see any question related to hardware. "Do I need a separate license..."
For me, Wacom tablet "was" a pen with a pad for hand writing and sketch.
For many years, tablets have a display, processor, RAM, hard drives, operating system.
For many more years, a tablet was a stone with carving
My pigeons are carrying one to you with my reply.
It might take a while.
Jim Riddell From your answer, I understood that only a trained true engineer understands the meaning of words. I understood that it was a tablet (i.e. a computer without a keyboard) because probably no one thought that someone wanted to run SW on the tablet as input device. And my answer was about the question asked by the author.. Although you think differently, but the author of the question no. Apparently we got along without understanding the meaning of the words
Ok, thanks everyone for your feedback.
I have seen the product demos online, and seems like it worked with solidworks, & autocad sketchbook pro as a stand alone sketch pad. I am looking for a devise that I can sketch out concepts that I can send/show to my designers can then take it and start to build off of my concepts in solidworks. I can not my use whiteboards or paper napkins concepts when everyone is working remotely.
Good luck using SolidWorks without keyboard.
isn't SW now also ok to use on touchscreen devices (so tablets would be ok) ? not saying perfect but still...
It works but its still heavy on keyboard.
I could use IV with 2 button mouse and don't need keyboard for commands.
I need a 15 button mouse for SW and still not enough for keyboard shortcuts.

I think the other thing that's missing here is the fact that SW is probably not the program for this function. SW is not really good for "sketching out concepts" as a whiteboard or napkin replacement, especially if you're not already quite proficient in SolidWorks.
If you switch to online licensing, you can use the same license across multiple devices.
