3D Mice: now supported by Bentley Systems’ V8i

Award-Winning 3D Mice support new Bentley Systems’ V8i Portfolio.


The portfolio of supported apps includes MicroStation V8i, MicroStation PowerDraft V8i, and Bentley View V8i. 3Dconnexions’ 3D mice integrates seamlessly into the lastest features of V8i. Between the fluid use of conceptual design and dynamic views, 3D mice bring new capabilities for more interaction and control.

“Collaborating with Bentley Systems significantly expands 3Dconnexion support for solutions in the AEC community,” said Dieter Neujahr, president of 3Dconnexion. “Our 3D mice deliver dramatic productivity gains to V8i users by streamlining workflow and increasing design performance. In long-term infrastructure projects that can take years to complete, our 3D mice can accelerate the design, visualization and review process, ultimately decreasing time to market.”

The new Mice are now not confined to motion on one flat plane, but a three dimensional world, that probably echos the fluid motion of navigation in the Sims 2 game. Using six degrees of freedom and space, 3Dconnexions’ 3D mice make the modeling process more dynamic and effortless.

“3Dconnexion 3D mice complement the V8i portfolio, which is aimed to bring significant workflow enhancements for intuitive design modeling, streamlined interaction and project design performance,” said Joe Croser, global marketing director, Bentley Systems, Incorporated.

3Dconnexion provides advanced and affordable 3D mice that are supported by more than 130 of today’s leading and powerful 3D applications, including Adobe® Photoshop® CS3 Extended and Acrobat® 3D, CATIA, Google Earth™ and SketchUp®, Microsoft® Virtual Earth™, NX™, Pro/ENGINEER®, Second Life Grid® Platform, SolidWorks®, and all of the top-tier 3D CAD applications.
