Partner Product Spotlight – 3Dconnexion
3Dconnexion, supplier of high-performance input devices for CAD professionals, is introducing the SpaceMouse Compact. It inspires with its iconic, pure design and supports intuitive, precise and effortless navigation in 3D environments.
The key features of the SpaceMouse Compact include 3Dconnexion’s patented 6-Degrees-of-Freedom (6DoF) sensor and two individually programmable buttons. The sensor enables precise navigation of 3D model-views in all industry-leading CAD applications. By pushing, pulling or tilting the 3Dconnexion controller cap, 3D models can be intuitively panned, zoomed and rotated. At the same time, the user can easily select and edit models with the standard mouse in the other hand.
With the SpaceMouse Compact’s two ergonomically designed buttons, users can open an application specific radial menu. The menu provides direct access to up to eight favorite commands per application and environment, which greatly simplifies and speeds up the user’s work. The commands can be executed by a simple mouse gesture, either by direct clicking or by swiping over it with the mouse cursor. Driver 3DxWare 10 is required for the use and individual configuration of the two buttons. Users can easily and quickly create their own radial menus or select from useful pre-settings. The software provides an intuitive user interface and can be configured individually for all current 3Dconnexion products.
In addition, the new SpaceMouse Compact convinces with its iconic, pure design, so that it easily fits on every desk. The brushed steel base ensures stability for precise 3D navigation.
“The SpaceMouse Compact provides intuitive, effortless and precise 3D navigation in CAD environments – in a way that is not possible with the combination of a standard mouse and keyboard,” says Robert Stadie, Product Manager at 3Dconnexion. “It’s the ideal tool for engineers, architects and designers who review 3D designs.”
The SpaceMouse Compact was released on February 15th, 2018. It supports the operating systems Microsoft Windows from version 7 and Mac OS from version 10.10 and higher. Further information and the 3Dconnexion web shop can be found at www.3dconnexion.com.
