Fremont, CA — 3Dconnexion announces the new SpacePilot™ PRO. The company’s flagship 3D mouse is designed to deliver advanced control of 3D models, easier access to the power of professional 3D applications, fewer interruptions in the design workflow, and superior comfort. Specifically, the SpacePilot PRO features a new color LCD Workflow Assistant, second-generation QuickView Navigation technology, Intelligent Function keys, and an improved design for enhanced comfort and control.
The SpacePilot PRO 3D mouse provides the highest level of performance features ever available from 3Dconnexion, including:
* LCD Workflow Assistant: The color LCD lists function-key assignments and provides at-a-glance
access to Microsoft® Outlook® e-mail, calendar and task lists, allowing professionals to access
important information for a fully integrated design experience with fewer distractions. Through
3Dconnexion’s open software architecture, the workflow assistant can be further customized to
meet the needs of individuals, companies and software vendors.
* Advanced MCAD Navigation: Five new dual-function QuickView Navigation keys improve error
detection, design review, and design presentation by providing one-touch access to the following
views: top and bottom, right and left, front and back, two isometric views, and 90-degree view
rotation of any view either clockwise or counter-clockwise – for a total of 32 views. A short press
activates a key’s primary view command, while pressing and holding a key activates a secondary
view command. In addition, new Navigation Setting keys offer simplified and customizable control,
allowing professionals to turn pan-and-zoom, rotation and one-axis control on or off, making it
easier to define navigation settings for certain work modes.
* Intelligent Function Keys: Five new fully customizable, dual-function keys offer immediate,
one-touch access to 10 frequently used commands within any supported 3D application. The
SpacePilot PRO automatically detects the active application and assigns appropriate function
keys – whether default or customized. The color LCD denotes the function key assignments and
application mode so engineers can easily identify commands and design states.
* Superior Comfort: The SpacePilot PRO has a new sculpted, soft-coated wrist rest that positions the hand in relation to the controller cap to support a balanced workflow. The micro-precision six-degrees-of-freedom sensor allows for fingertip control with minimal effort from the arm, wrist and hand, while frequently used commands are conveniently positioned at your fingertips. The intuitive and symmetrical layout of the function keys makes the device usable with either hand.
