3Dconnexion publishes Case Study – BIM and 3D mice

3Dconnexion publishes case study on BIM and use of 3D mice


3Dconnexion has published a case study on the user of its SpacePilot Pro 3D mouse with Autodesk Revit 2012. The case study focuses on Celebrity Custom Homes in Lone Tree, Colorado, which is a premium residential neighborhood builder and developer.

In-house designer Dave Geist has been using Autodesk Revit Architecture to develop and create custom residential designs and construction documents.

“The ability to pan, zoom and rotate simultaneously in the middle of a command is so helpful,” says Geist, “specifically the ability to rotate the model to review without using the keyboard.”

01 - 3Dconnexion is the maker of award-winning 3D mice, like the SpaceNavigator shown here. Their 3D mice help 3D and CAD software workflows.

The 3Dconnexion SpacePilot Pro is just one of many 3D mice by 3Dconnexion, which aid dramatically in the workflows of CAD and 3D professionals across a variety of software applications. (You can read a product review of the SpaceNavigator from 2007 here.)
