Accelerate your SOLIDWORKS performance

Work smarter and faster in SOLIDWORKS and benefit from 3Dconnexion's Intelligent 3D Navigation - the ultimate level of control for design engineers.

From concept, to sketch, to part, to assembly and drawing, you’ll finish faster in every mode and be amazed that you ever worked without a 3D mouse

Intelligent 3D Navigation

Whether you're working on a large assembly or focusing on intricate part details, the 3D mouse automatically follows your point of interest to continuously determine the optimal center of rotation.  In addition, the center of rotation is visualized (optional) giving a reference point as you position the model. It feels natural so you stay focused.

Easier access to application functions

With the Intelligent Function Keys* on SpacePilot Pro, SpaceMouse Pro or SpaceMouse Pro Wireless you can quickly access any SOLIDWORKS function/macro. Get visual feedback on the SpacePilot Pro LCD and watch functions update automatically as you move from one application environment to another. Personalize the function keys quickly and easily inside any environment such as Part, Assembly, Drawing and more.

Unleash Hidden Power

Zoom to Cursor (Fast Zoom) by holding the middle button on your traditional mouse while pushing down on the 3D mouse controller cap. Set Rotational Center by selecting any face or vertex, or Set Rotational Axis by selecting any line or edge.

Part Modeling Mode

Smoothly view a model from several different angles while simultaneously adding or adjusting features with a traditional mouse. Access functions like Shift, Ctrl, Esc, Zoom to Fit, Chamfer and Fillet with a single press of the Intelligent Function or Keyboard Modifier keys*.

Assembly Mode

Build assemblies faster by placing components while simultaneously positioning the assembly to the best angle. Move existing components with ease to get the optimum viewing angle for mating component faces. Use the Intelligent Function Keys to instantly access functions like Insert Component, Mate, Move Component and Exploded View.

Drawing Mode

Position the entire drawing sheet while creating and placing drawing views, dimensions and annotations. Get rapid access to Zoom to Fit, Measure, Center Mark and all other drawing mode functions.

* Intelligent Function Keys and Keyboard Modifier keys available on SpaceExplorer, SpaceMouse Pro and SpacePilot Pro only.

Customer quote

“Building very complex assemblies and navigating around the 3D work environment gets to be extremely labor intensive with a standard mouse. But with a 3D mouse, it‘s a piece of cake. It frees me up completely to move around in a way that wasn’t possible before.”
