To use AutoCad with almost any digitizer, summasketch included it is recommended you download the driver from this site: http://www.vtablet.com only works with serial interface and costs +- $60 however they do allow u to use it for free for 30 days.
If u need a USB to serial that WORKS for your computer head to www.interworldna.com and search for the usbadpt adaptor
Hope this helps

SOURCE: SummaSketch III has no power

Absolutely, the Summasketch III needs a power pack, 12vdc which plugs into the RS232 plug (Computer side) Without this power supply plugged into the wall and into the cable the tablet will not work,

Try looking for a power supply at this URL: http://www.interwld.com/Home/FAQ.htm#SummaGraphics%20Digitizers

NEED WIN 7 DRIVER FOR GTCO CalComp Drawing Board III


Drivers for GTCO, GTCOCalcomp or Calcomp digitizers for Windows XP, 7 and 8 can be downloaded from this url:http://www.interworldna.com/GTCO/gtco-drivers.php

If you are trying to use your digitizer with AutoCad these drivers will not work and you will need to buy a driver from VTABLET.com (They provide a 30 day free trial/demo) only works with serial RS232 interface. If your digitizer uses USB then you will need an interface kit for your specific digitizer to convert it to RS232. Most new digitizers come with USB, some have serial but require you to buy an interface kit. Contact your Digitizer supplier.

If your digitizer is a GTCO, GTCOCalcomp, Calcomp or Summagraphics brand, try these guys: http://www.interworldna.com
They do not know about any other brands. Wacom contact Wacom, Numonics contact Numonics. If you have Mutoh or Science Accessories or any other brand you are on your own as those manufacturers have all gone out of business as far as I know.

When I install autocad2004 in windows 7 ,autocad can't run. untill now AutoCAD 2004 can't be compatible with a Windows 7 ?


yes can be, just follow these steps:

Not compatible or not working well with windows 7?

Maybe, It doesn't work because the driver/application you installed is for other versions of operating system. I am also using windows 7 like you so don't you worry, You can still use your old installer/driver from other versions of operating systems. Just remember that before installing any program in a windows 7 Operating System Computer, Use "troubleshoot compatibility". Right Click the Icon of your program installer/application first, then choose "troubleshoot compatibility". This will allow you to choose on what type operating system your program will run. Just reply back if it still doesn't work.:D rate and vote for me:))

AutoCAD 2004 / Windows 7 compatibility?


If it works in Vista you shouldn't have any problems. Easiest way to find out is to install it!

You can always just uninstall the program fi you run into problems.

Autocad 2008 et Drawing Board III (is there compatibility?)


If you are using the drivers supplied by GTCO, they won't work with Autocad 2008.
They are not a fully compliant Wintab driver. Check with the Autocad software to be sure of what kind of tablet driver it needs.
There is a site called www.vtablet.com that sells a tablet driver that is fully Wintab compliant.

We have a digitizer we are trying to resurrect: SummaSketch III with 4-button Diamond Puck 12 x 12 MM compatible version 1.91 Win XP SP2 (version 5.01 build 2600) Tablet Works 7.46.0619 com1 All buttons work and are assignable The puck works in mouse mode. In WYPIWYG mode there seems to be some problem: In Tablet Works Control Panel, the digitizer area doesn't stick - the (almost) whole digitizer area is still used; a small selectable area cannot be defined. I use this in AutoCAD with the Wintab Comaptible Digitizer ADI 4.2 - by AutoDesk. AutoCAD will recognize the tablet and allow me to configure regions and a screen pointing area. Menu items on the tablet work and the screen area allows geometry selection. Here's the problem (you could feel it coming couldn't you): Counting up from the lower left corner of the tablet The tablet "sees" (steady indicator light) from about (4.75cm, 4.3cm) (my ref: X-5) to (28.0cm, 26.5cm) (my ref: B-27) In the GTCO tablet configuration utilities the cursor can paint the test screen area from the lower left corner to about 75% of the test screen area up and to the right. A few years ago we had a problem with the puck: A button wasn't working. We repaired it. The cross-hairs cover fell out and the coil wire broke, we resoldered it. I don't remember clearly but we may have tried to replace some of the coil wire. Questions: How can I repair this here myself? If the coil is not the correct sensitivity will that cause the symptoms we have? What is the correct wire size and number of turns for the coil? Any suggestions on how to rewind it? The felt on the bottom of the puck is worn. Do you have a suggestion for a replacement material? What is a good way to keep the cross-hairs cover from falling out? We are a not-for-profit NGO that works to help rural villagers have good empolyment by making building materials on a small scale. We use AutoCAD to design buildings that use their materials and equipment and tools for them to produce the materials. We also mentor interns from local and foreign universities and colleges. We would appreciate any help you can give us. Sincerely, Geoffrey
