3Dconnexion Brings 3D Mice Power and Control to CoCreate and ArchiCAD 14

Fremont, Calif. – Sept. 21, 2010 – 3Dconnexion’s full line of 3D mice now supports 3D CAD modeling software PTC® CoCreate® Modeling 17.0 and Personal Edition 3.0, and GRAPHISOFT® ArchiCAD 14, 3D architectural design software.

3Dconnexion 3D mice provide professionals working in these applications with a level of design interaction that is unattainable with a traditional mouse and keyboard. Using a 3D mouse, professionals are able to design more intuitively and with precise control helping enhance design performance for teams facing time-to-market pressure and varying design requirements.

3Dconnexion’s 3D mice provide users with a range of design productivity benefits when working in ArchiCAD 14 and CoCreate Modeling 17.0 and Personal Edition 3.0, including:  

  • Superior navigation allows designers to simultaneously pan, zoom and rotate as if they are holding the imagery or model in their hand
  • Precise control with patented six-degrees-of-freedom (6DoF) sensor that is capable of detecting input as small as four micrometers for smooth and natural control
  • Improved efficiency with programmable buttons that provide quick access to commonly used application commands, enabling designers to better focus on their models
  • Increased design performance enables professionals to focus more on visualizing imagery or models to aid in the detection of critical issues


The entire 3Dconnexion product line is compatible with these applications, including the Professional Series with the SpacePilot PRO (MSRP $399) and SpaceExplorer™ (MSRP $299), and the Standard Series with the SpaceNavigator (MSRP $99) and SpaceNavigator for Notebooks (MSRP $129).
