3Dconnexion, a Logitech company, has announced that their complete line of award-winning 3D mice are now fully supported by the entire Nemetschek North America VectorWorks 2008 product line including: VectorWorks Architect 2008, Landmark 2008, Spotlight 2008, VectorWorks Fundamentals 2008 and RenderWorks 2008.
3Dconnexion’s award-winning 3D mice, including the fantastic SpaceNavigator (see Architosh product review, SpaceNavigator, 16 Feb 2007), work to control 3D navigation with 3D CAD, modeling, rendering and animation programs.
“Our support of 3Dconnexion’s 3D mice was an easy choice — VectorWorks provides an extremely easy and flexible 3D design environment and 3Dconnexion’s family of 3D mice delivers the most natural interface to navigate that 3D world,” said Sean Flaherty, CEO of Nemetschek North America. “With 3Dconnexion’s product line, our users can naturally and quickly navigate the virtual world they are designing.”
“Intuitive and natural 3D navigation leads to better perception of 3D content and ultimately to better designs,” said Dieter Neujahr, president of 3Dconnexion. “The support of our 3D mice in VectorWorks 2008 helps us deliver on our commitment to provide the very best 3D navigation to the architects, designers and project managers in the AEC market.”
3Dconnexion’s SpaceNavigator™, SpaceNavigator for Notebooks, SpaceExplorer™ and SpacePilot™ feature customizable buttons, giving users the ability to program frequently used commands using custom function macros. SpaceNavigator also offers default pre-configured programmable buttons assigned with key VectorWorks functions.
