I do not have experience with any of those but I would assume the answer would be it may be possible but it depends on many things. What version of SWorks are you going to be using - SW2015 requires Win 7, 8 or 8.1 64-bit operating system. The graphic card could cause a problem if it is not an approved card. The type of work you expect to use SW for is important. Simple parts and small assemblies may not cause a problem. Curvy shapes and large assemblies could have problems. It is always tempting to try to use something physically smaller, less expensive or less capable hardware. The problem is that after buying something like that and then realizing that it only does 75% of what you need it to, you end up buying the more recommended unit in addition to what you just spent.
Thanks for your replay ....I want it for simple parts and assembies as iam a student engineer....do you think the asus vivo note 8 could do the job ..... http://www.asus.com/us/Tablets_Mobile/ASUS_VivoTab_Note_8_M80TA/specifications/
I don't have experience with any of these running windows 8 but I have an ASUS T100 running Android and I'm less than impressed with it. I really wanted to like it but just didn't.
On another note I have tried using a touchscreen with SolidWorks and it was also less than impressive. If want to try a tablet I would highly recommend something with a stylus that has a smaller tip and a button(s) on the stylus for the mouse buttons because when using a mouse you can track the intended position before selecting which is important if you want to have automatic relations work.
What is that device and what is the version of solid works you ran it on that touch screen device and how was the performance ? Give more details please
I was running SW 2012 sp 2.0, the monitor was a 22" dell touch screen with 1920 x 1080 resolution.
i do not see why either of the 3 would not work. how well they will work will be a different answer tho.
Thanks for your reply ...what is your opinion about that Asus note http://www.asus.com/us/Tablets_Mobile/ASUS_VivoTab_Note_8_M80TA/specifications/ ......is it OK for simple parts and humble assembly for small projects ...
that lousy 2gb of ram will prob slow you down considerably. IMO that is not a good tablet. not to mention 3d design on a tablet without capabilities of using a mouse n keyboard seems impossible to me.
A mouse could be attached to the tablet ..as well as a But thanks for the ram advice.
I was at Best Buy last night doing Christmas Shopping and started looking at tablet options that might work with SolidWorks. I think with an 8" device you will have a very hard time to access commands, the drawing space and feature tree. Even if you are using a mouse those three things will likely be competing for space on your screen and you will need to change everything to fly-out or command manager. You will be making a lot more clicks and gestures than you expect to model even somewhat simple parts and assemblies and you will more than likely want to do more with the tablet as your abilities improve.
For a reasonable price and weight you can get a 10" tablet which will suit you better short term and hopefully last you long enough to earn some money to pay for a bigger & better one later.
Can you give me alink to the a10 tablet ....thanks for the screen advice
