3Dconnexion Launches Its Most Powerful 3D Mouse Ever: the SpacePilot PRO

To meet demands of design engineers working in 3D applications, 3Dconnexion announced the new SpacePilot PRO. The company's flagship 3D mouse is designed to deliver advanced control of 3D models, easier access to features of professional 3D applications, fewer interruptions in the design workflow, and improved 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.

SpacePilot PRO 3D mouse features:

  • 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. Through 3Dconnexion's open software architecture, the workflow assistant can be further customized.
  • Advanced MCAD Navigation: Five new dual-function QuickView Navigation keys provide 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 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 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.
  • 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.

3Dconnexion provides 3D mice that are supported by more than 130 of today's 3D applications, including Autodesk Inventor, SolidWorks, CATIA, Pro/ENGINEER, NX and Solid Edge.

The SpacePilot PRO is backed by a three-year warranty, and is currently available at a suggested retail price of $499. The SpacePilot PRO is supported by Windows XP, Windows Vista, Sun Solaris 8 (SPARC), Sun Solaris 10 (x86), and Linux (Redhat Enterprise Linux WS 4, SuSE 9.3 or later). Linux and Solaris support workflow assistant function key assignments only.
