What is a 3D mouse?

A groundbreaking navigation concept and sophisticated functionality:

3D mice from 3Dconnexion redefine the 3D navigation standards.

It’s like holding the 3D model in your hand

Revolutionize the way you work with 3D applications.

Pan, zoom and rotate the model or camera as if you’re holding it in your hand. It’s a level of control that’s simply not possible with a traditional mouse and keyboard.

Whether you’re working on complex assemblies, dazzling 3D models or fantastic fly throughs, with a 3D mouse you can set your imagination free! 

Dynamics and precision with two hands

Together with a traditional mouse, a 3D mouse allows two-handed and synchronous operation.

In doing so, one hand operates the 3D mouse in order to position a model or to move within the virtual environment while the other hand selects and edits using the traditionla mouse.

Two-handed control, saving time and clicks.

The 3DxCap: Your virtual arm

At the heart of every 3Dconnexion 3D mouse is the Controller Cap. Gently push, pull, twist or tilt to simultaneously pan, zoom and rotate. Increase pressure to go faster or decrease pressure to make intricate adjustments.

What are the benefits of a 3D mouse?

    • Time savings, efficency and productivity:
      An independent CAD study shows increased productiy by more than 20%.*1
    • Enhanced comfort:
      Up to 50% less mouse clicks.*2
    • Improved work quality*1:
      Due to the clever and precise naviagtion control, you will master your object as never before.
