SIG: 3Dconnexion 3D mice support Blender

Blender and 3Dconnexion get together – new support for 3D mice in latest Blender release announced


3Dconnexion at SIGGRAPH this week announced support for the popular, open-source 3D software suite Blender, version 2.59.

“Hands down, 3Dconnexion 3D mice provide the most intuitive way to work in Blender and are a must-have tool on today’s design workstations,” said Nathan Letwory, chief technology officer, Studio Lumikuu and Blender core developer. “Using a 3D mouse in Blender means you can position your model while simultaneously sculpting or modifying with a traditional mouse or tablet. You have to try it to believe it!”

Blender 2.59 will now support SpaceNavigator, SpaceExplorer or SpacePilot PRO. The intuitive and precise control makes users feel like they’re holding the digital model in their hand. Check out what “Big Buck Bunny” has to say about 3D mice here. (YouTube link).
