A Better Way to Navigate in AutoCAD
24 October 2008
Excerpt: Let's face it: Mice, trackballs, and digitizers haven't evolved much since the 1990s. If you're looking for a better way to navigate, take a look at the 3Dconnexion SpaceNavigator ($300 street).
Conclusion: The SpaceNavigator for Notebooks is every bit as useful and intuitive with 3D applications as the original SpaceNavigator. But unless you need to lug a 3D mouse along on your daily commute, you should probably just stick with the cheaper desktop model.
Pros: Innovative design. Smooth movement. Simple software integration. Makes navigating Google Earth and Second Life a blast.
Cons: Could be more travel-friendly. Pricey. Base needs to be steadier. For use in 3D applications only.
Excerpt: Invention of the computer mouse must have been one of the biggest innovations in the field of computer related hardware. This rodent kept the same basic design for a very long time but this all have changed now. Regular computer mouse is good for many things but still there is room for improvements.
Conclusion: Overall, the 3Dconnexion Space Navigator is a very tidy product that is very good for 3D apps and software. In Google Earth, after a little time, I was able to master the controls and easily navigate around the planet whilst panning, zooming and rotating simultaneously.
Pros: Very easy to use, Comfortable, PE version is competitively priced, Stylish
Cons: Could be a little heavier, SE version a lot more expensive for seemingly not much gain
Excerpt: 3Dconnexion’s line of input devices for 3D suites – which it calls 3D mice – are tools that aim to make it easier to work in animation tools such as Maya, 3DS Max, LightWave and Cinema 4D than traditional ‘2D’ mice.
Pros: Smaller and lighter than standard SpaceNavigator model.
Cons: Standard version is better for most 3D artists.
Im Test - 3DConnexion SpaceNavigator für 3D Anwendungen

Conclusion: Die 3D-Navigation mit dem SpaceNavigator können wir ohne Bedenken als hervorragend bezeichnen. Die Verarbeitung ist einwandfrei und setzt die Maßlatte eine Stufe höher. Der hohe Standard der Treibersoftware unterstreicht das gelungene Gesamtkonzept der 3D-Maus.
