3D Coat Questions: MoI3D, Rhino, Wacom, Wacom Airbrush

Greetings All, 


I've downloaded the trial of 3D Coat after seeing it highly recommended as a UV Tool (still haven't gotten a hang of the UV features, but the interface is pretty awesome).


I've found a few good posts about using 3D Coat with MoI and Rhino (listed below*). Any Rhino/MoI users have any strong opinions/tips/caveats about this workflow?


How is the Wacom support in 3D Coat? Can I use the full features e.g. pen angle and keys? Can I use the airbrush pen (with the wheel)?





More details:


What I want to use it for: I am looking at using it in a MoI3D/Rhino workflow, replacing Mudbox as a 3D sculpting and Normal/GI baking tool (I have used Mudbox very happily in the past but can't bring myself to pay Autodesk for anything). Also, as mentioned I would use it for UV cleanup/repair. 


My deliverables range from realtime 3D models (rare) to 3D printing/CAM (very common), with full-res rendering for clients in-between. I use Neon in Rhino these days for rendering, I used to use Turtle/MR in Maya, but then Autodesk bought AW and ruined the party. I need to be able to deliver watertight meshes for printing as well as UV-ed models for use in custom OpenGL renderers and Unity/UDK.


My Preferences with similar software: I liked the speed of ZBrush, but hated the UI. As I don't sculpt or texture on every project and sometimes go months without doing so it really helps to have a UI I can return to and not have to relearn every time. I love the UI experience of Mudbox but it choked a bit on high poly models. I haven't used recent versions of either software (~3 years for mudbox, last used ZBrush in 2006), so perhaps they have both improved.
