What is a 3D Mouse?

A 3D mouse is used by your non-dominant hand in tandem with a standard mouse for a balanced, cooperative work style. You gently manipulate the 3D mouse’s controller cap to simultaneously pan, zoom and rotate 3D content while your standard mouse is free to select menu items of parts of the model.

This isn’t a novel way to work or a luxury. It fundamentally improves the way you interact with your 3D application. 3D professionals at some of the world’s most successful companies—such as Boeing, BMW, EADS, Honda, General Motors and JCB—agree: they choose to work with 3D mice daily for the proven productivity increases and enhanced comfort they provide.

Why 3DConnexion

The 3DConnexion 3D series of mice offers excellent choices to help you innovate. With a 3D mouse users can pan, zoom and rotate as if they’re holding the model in their hand or fly like a helicopter through three-dimensional worlds. It’s a level of control that’s simply not possible with a traditional mouse and keyboard. Hundreds of thousands of users worldwide testify to shortened product design cycles, a reduction in work-related fatigue and improvements in design quality.

The core technology inside all 3Dconnexion 3D mice has its roots in the field of robotics and space exploration. In 1993, a 3D controller was used on the space shuttle Columbia, manipulating the first robotic arm in space. This was the launching point for a family of 3D mice. A patented optical measuring system delivers unparalleled performance and a fundamental understanding of how designers and engineers work with their 3D software, drives the continual development of groundbreaking new products. It is the goal of 3Dconnexion to refine the technology even beyond the present benchmark established by the SpacePilot™ Pro, introduced in April 2009.

3Dconnexion is the expert when it comes to providing 2D and 3D design professionals with an immersive design experience. To help people produce better designs, faster and more comfortably is our mission. Digital prototyping is in our DNA. From aerospace to automotive, consumer goods to electronics, machine tools to game development, 3Dconnexion 3D mice accelerate productivity and design quality to a new level.
