3Dconnexion announces modo 601 support

3Dconnexion’s award-winning 3D mice are now available for Luxology’s modo 601


3Dconnexion this week announced that Luxology’s modo 601 3D software application now includes support for its 3D mice, enabling users to immerse themselves in the powerful animation, modeling, painting and rendering features of this popular software.

The support for 3Dconnexion’s 3D mice is built into the newest service pack for modo 601 (SP1) which is currently available for download.

“modo users now have a powerful new option for navigating within the application,” said Brad Peebler, president and cofounder, Luxology. “Our 3Dconnexion 3D mouse implementation provides a very granular level of control to ensure a natural user experience.”

01 - 3Dconnexion's 3D mice are now supported in Luxology's newest modo 601.

3Dconnexion 3D mice enable artists, animators and designers to intuitively interact with modo 601 content in a way that’s unattainable with a traditional mouse and keyboard, boosting creativity and speed while enhancing comfort by reducing dependency on a standard mouse or tablet. Users working in Orbit Object mode feel like they’re holding the digital model in their hand, a feeling further intensified by 3Dconnexion’s intelligent 3D navigation which automatically adjusts the object’s center of rotation depending on the users point of interest. When working in Camera Walkthrough mode, users can quickly and smoothly position the viewport so they focus on their digital content rather than how to look at it from the right angle.

“The integration of 3D mouse support in modo 601 brings 3Dconnexion’s superior 3D navigation experience to 3D professionals working in media and entertainment, engineering and architectural design visualization,” said Antonio Pascucci, vice president of products, 3Dconnexion. “Whether working on character animation, volumetric rendering or retopology modelling, 3Dconnexion 3D mice enable modo 601 users to achieve more by not being held back by legacy input device technology.”
