I’m absolutely embarrassed that I never knew this before but…
The pen stand that most Wacom products come with?
It twists off and has a bunch of nibs in it.
I’ve been buying extra nibs when they were in this stupid thing the whole time.
Reblog to save a life.
ARe YOU KIDDING
I just checked and HOLY FUCK
For anyone who has a Wacom Intuos that looks like this
The spare nibs are on the back of the removable panel where you can change the pen loop colour.
Also there’s a little hole in that compartment that looks like this
You see the little eject symbol? This guy is how you remove your worn down nibs.
Press the pen nib in on an angle like this and lift up.
and ta-da! you just removed your pen nib!
I feel like an idiot for not knowing this.
ok i’ve never had an intuos but im reblogging this because it’s funny as fuck why the hell is wacom so god damn extra like literally what other consumer electronic product would have a hidden removable panel that contains customizable color attachments, replacements for worn out parts, and a mysterious “eject hole” with like ZERO EXPLANATION
WHAT OTHER COMPANY THIS VAGUE AND EXCESSIVE ?? THEIR STANDARD PARTS REPLACEMENTS ARE HIDDEN WITHIN THEIR PRODUCT SO SECRETIVELY THAT MOST PEOPLE ARE LEARNING ABOUT IT FROM A TUMBLR POST AFTER OWNING THE PRODUCT FOR Y E A R S
im screaming its literally in the directions
Who’s reading directions in 2018
Uh, excuse me, who’s reading directions EVER.
