3D MOUSE RECOMMENDATIONS?

3D MOUSE RECOMMENDATIONS?

(OP)
Hi, I was wondering if there were any 3D mice recommendations, caution, or advice. Any help would be great. Thanks.

RE: 3D MOUSE RECOMMENDATIONS?

I am partial to my 3DConnexion SpaceMouse Pro. I like it more than the smaller 'pucks' and never have seen the need for wireless or programmable features. I have used mine extensively with Abaqus, Catia and SolidWorks. Once you get one I find the most important setting is flipping the zoom direction if it feels wrong.

On the boring 2D mouse side I've got a Logitech Performance MX.

Both have been rock solid for years and have tried others and came back to these. I hope this helps!

Rob

Thank you.

Rob,
Thank you for all that info. That is very good advice. I'm leaning towards a wired spacemouse. sdvend.
