3Dconnexion 3D mice now support SolidWorks 2009

SolidWorks 2009 Now Works with 3D Mice from 3Dconnexion


3Dconnexion, a Logitech company, this week announced that their line of 3D mice — such as the popular SpaceNavigator (see Architosh Review: “SpaceNavigator,” 16 Feb 2007), are now supported by SolidWorks 2009, the newest version of the popular 3D CAD software, by SolidWorks Corporation of Massachusetts. 

“3Dconnexion did a great job of looking within SolidWorks 2009 to see where a 3D mouse will help the software work more effectively for the user,” said Nick Iwaskow, Manager of Alliances at Dassault Systemes SolidWorks Corp. “More than ever, our customers are looking for the productivity gain that 3Dconnexion 3D mice provide.”

3Dconnexion 3D mice work to combine multiple, 3D navigation functionalities into a single controller, freeing up one hand to navigate in 3D while the mouse hand can select and implement functions normal to a program. With 3D mice the user can freely fly through environments or around objects in an intuitive manner. 

The SpaceNavigator Personal Edition retails at 59.USD. To learn more visit them at:
