    Would anybody seriously use touch screen to design on Exocad? I saw it in use at DT's room in Chicago, it looks fancy! But I think I'm too lazy to use touch screen. Who wants to hold their arm out there for that long? haha

    I agree. I bought a surface pro to run exocad out of the lab and tried it and immediately went and bought a mouse. Kind if neat to show off maybe but would get old pretty quick.

    I tried marking margins on a Trios cart with touch screen. Talk about fat fingering. Even using a stylus it was pretty useless.

    How about a Wacom tablet or the like?
    I just ordered one from amazon and plan to program it with the mouse buttons, ctrl, shift, and any other shortcut.
    Will take some getting used to, but I think once its setup and the learning curve is over, it will be very efficient.
    Like the 3D mouse. I love it for model manipulation.

    I have a Trios hooked up to a touchscreen laptop, it makes it easier to move the model around, but fine work like margins are easier with a mouse for sure.

    I use touch screen on dell precision workstation some time and it makes it easier for me ... maybe cuz of my slim and piano fingers lol
    But i was thinking how does it work from performing perspestive. Does the graphic card warms up on the surface book . How smooth it is to work on it ? Talking big constructions all on 6 and some like that .
    Any sugestion is warmly welcomed
