SpaceExplorer 3D mouse now supports OS X

updated 08:55 pm EDT, Mon May 19, 2008

SpaceExplorer

3Dconnexion has announced that its SpaceExplorer 3D mouse is now supported by Mac OS X 10.4.6 and later, allowing Mac users to use the tool to navigate through popular 3D application workspaces. By pulling, pushing, tilting, and spinning the SpaceExplorer's 3D mouse cap, designers can move through 3D scenes and worlds without stopping to select commands. A subtle increase or decrease in cap pressure accelerates or slows motion, enabling precise micro-adjustments. The device also sports function keys to program highly-used functions and keyboard modifiers, as well as an ergonomically designed palm rest for a comfortable command console.



In addition, users can maneuver camera views for increased control and flexibility in applications such as Autodesk Maya and Google SketchUp. The SpaceExplorer device has a suggested retail price of $300 and is supported by Adobe Photoshop CS3 Extended and Acrobat, Apple QuickTime Player (QTVR), Autodesk Maya, Blender, formZ, Google Earth and SketchUp, Graphisoft ArchiCAD, IMSI/Design TurboSketch Studio, IVS 3D Fledermaus Professional, Nemetschek VectorWorks, Robert McNeel & Associates Rhinoceros, Smith Micro Software Poser and the Second Life Grid Platform.
