Hay guys just wanted to share this little bit of knowledge i discovered. Lately i have been using a dumb stylus with just the teflon tip. However with the launch of Procreate 2 i figured it would be time to get a pressure sensitive stylus. So on impulse i bought a wacom creative stylus. However i could not get use to the big nibs. To make a long story short i placed the teflon tip in the small slot of the wacom (when you take the rubber off. You'll see it) taped around the top to keep it from slipping off. And so far it has worked great! I hope this helps everyone till apple decides to give us a proper stylus. Happy Thanksgiving everyone
Poke a hole through the original rubber it holds the shaft and gives a little dampening. Spot of silicon should holds it perfectly. Update.. Just tried it with jot tip on my bamboo dumb stylus (same internal brass shaft) Works awsome. My favourite dumb stylus just became better.
My teflon tip scratches like mad. First the teflon coating wears off, then the exposed metal scratches the screen. Though I am not sure if it will really scratch the actual screen, because I always use a screen protector.
Hay fellow artist, just to give you an update thanks to custumfx suggestion I peirced the nib with the tip and used a glue gun to bond the tip and the teflon together. I cut the rod on the teflon tip a bit so that the stylus will still fit in its case and yes everything works great so far. Pressure and everything :) hope this pic helps. To the last post, sorry to hear that about your tips. I have been using it for months without any screen protector and have not had anything happen to the screen yet :(.
Wow, I used one of the firm nibs for the bamboo stylus ( they are the same size as the ones used for the Creative stylus, but harder) . Just cut the teflon tip rod the right lengh, peirced the rubber nib and inserted it in. That easy. It holds it beautifully, without any glue and feels quite comfortable and it really ROCKS!!!! Am loving this. I just hope I don't start scratching my screen as I really don't want to go back on this...Thanks for bringing this one up Germs 770, great tip and I finally found a use for both tips that were lying around on my desk without any use whatsoever. Big +1!!!
Glad I can share this with the community :). I will post a video a little later to show that it does work properly. @ Bonaparte333 I have been drawing extensively with the tip for about 3 months now and still have not got any scratches. Another thing I would like to add is with the Wacom Stylus is that if you cut it a short enough that it fits the case. That would negate the worry of getting dirt or anything that might scratch the screen on the tip. :D
Hey Germs, after 3 months do you see any change in how the tip is responding or is the teflon coating underneath wearing off? Does the tip feel "looser" in any way? In terms of lengh, mine is cut so the disc is butting right up to the rubber nib. It does indeed fit neatly in the case. :)
Thank you crabfu I am really happy and honored to see how well it has worked out for you (and everyone else of course) :). I really love your art-style (skylanders) and all the other stuff you do. I have been following your art on youtube as well as on your site so to hear that from you really made my day :).
Great modification guys, I am so going to do this and merge my precise but rubbish JaJa with my great pressure but too squidgy Wacom to form the 'WaWa' or 'Jacom'! :) If there are any 3D modelers/product designers that feel like working up a screw on cone that could replace the entire tip of wacom with a snug channel for the Teflon tip from JaJa without need to snip anything to size and make it available to 3D print, it would be greatly appreciated by a lot of people?
Until then I might hunt around for an alternative to Shapelock (looks brilliant but I don't fancy buying such a huge bag of the stuff for a single bead to make the mod) ...maybe fimo clay?
