3Dconnexion 3D Mice Now Supported by Nemetschek North America VectorWorks 2008


Award-Winning 3D Mice Enhance Design Capabilities in Precision Design Software

San Jose, Calif. - 3Dconnexion, a Logitech company, today announced that its complete line of 3D mice are now supported by the entire Nemetschek North America VectorWorks 2008 line of award-winning, precision-design software: Designer, Architect, Landmark, Spotlight, Machine Design, Fundamentals, and RenderWorks. With 3Dconnexion’s 3D mice, the VectorWorks community can easily control and maneuver 3D objects, 3D designs and 2D drafts, for a streamlined design process that optimizes workflow and increases productivity.

Unlike mice confined to motion on two flat planes, 3Dconnexion’s 3D mice allow effortless movement and control within the VectorWorks 3D workspace. Gently lift, press and turn the 3D mouse controller cap to fly through 3D space while simultaneously zooming and rotating the view with fluid and highly intuitive control. An increase in pressure accelerates motion, while a decrease in pressure slows motion for precise micro-adjustments.

“Our support of 3Dconnexion’s 3D mice was an easy choice - VectorWorks provides an extremely easy and flexible 3D design environment and 3Dconnexion’s family of 3D mice delivers the most natural interface to navigate that 3D world,” said Sean Flaherty, CEO of Nemetschek North America. “With 3Dconnexion’s product line, our users can naturally and quickly navigate the virtual world they are designing.”

“Intuitive and natural 3D navigation leads to better perception of 3D content and ultimately to better designs,” said Dieter Neujahr, president of 3Dconnexion. “The support of our 3D mice in VectorWorks 2008 helps us deliver on our commitment to provide the very best 3D navigation to the architects, designers and project managers in the AEC market.”

3Dconnexion’s SpaceNavigator™, SpaceNavigator for Notebooks, SpaceExplorer™ and SpacePilot™ feature customizable buttons, giving users the ability to program frequently used commands using custom function macros. SpaceNavigator also offers default pre-configured programmable buttons assigned with key VectorWorks functions.

3Dconnexion provides advanced and affordable 3D mice that are supported by more than 120 of today’s most popular 3D applications, including Adobe® Photoshop® CS3 Extended and Acrobat® 3D, Autodesk® Inventor™, AutoCAD®, 3ds Max®, and Maya®, Blender, CATIA, Google Earth™ and SketchUp®, Microsoft® Virtual Earth™, NX™, Pro/ENGINEER®, SolidWorks®, and many other CAD, DCC, AEC, and GIS applications.
