New drivers enable Blender pressure sensitivity on Windows tablets


If you own a Windows tablet, then you may want to try downloading the new 'N-Trig' drivers to enable pressure sensitivity in Blender.

I don't know how many people here own a Windows tablet which uses N-Trig pressure sensitive stylus technology (which accounts for nearly all Windows Tablets), but N-Trig just released new WinTab drivers for all devices using their tech, and although they didn't specify that Blender now has support, I've tested the new drivers with my Sony VAIO Duo 13 on version 2.70 and the latest test build and it works! You can now properly sculpt on windows tablets!

I have a LONG history with Blender - I wrote some of the earliest Blender tutorials, worked for Not a Number and helped run the crowdfunding campaign that open sourced Blender (the first one on the internet!). I founded BlenderNation in 2006 and have been editing it every single day since then ;-) I also run the Blender Artists forum and I'm Head of Community at Sketchfab.


  1. Does it have to be a Surface pro to be able to detect pressure? Or does this work with any tablet running Windows 8 RT?
