Could I use a drawing tablet for 3D modelling?

I hear graphic tablet is most useful for 3D modelling , sculpting and texture painting.
Well i am interested in buying a XP-Pen display tablet ( Artist 24 Pro 24" model ). Has anyone used a graphics tablet successfully on Blender , Zbrush or other software? What was your experience?

Many people use a graphic tablet, especially if they have a 'traditional' background like drawing on paper. I tried using one many years ago and found it didn't work for me, but I'm not an artist. Unfortunately I think this is a situation where it depends on how YOU find using a tablet and not other peoples experience.

Other people who do use tablets may well be able to add suggestions on how they use it in their creative process.

For organic modelling I prefer to use Forger on my iPad. Same thing applies to any painting with Affinity programs.  In Blender (or any other parametric design programs) I use a mouse. Because there I usually move stuff around, type numbers and click on buttons.

For my hobby level usage this setup works best for me.
