News To celebrate the release of Pointwise V16.03 and its support for the 3D mouse from 3Dconnexion, Pointwise, Inc. is offering free 3D mice to the first 10 customers to license Pointwise V16.03.

The 3D mouse gives control over X, Y, and Z translations and roll, pitch, and yaw rotations in a single, easy-to-operate device. With a few minutes of practice, anyone can quickly and precisely move a 3D model to any desired position and orientation.

Productivity and comfort are among the advantages of using a 3D mouse. The 3D mouse increases productivity by more than 20 percent, according to the white paper The Economic Payback of 3D Mice. Traditional mouse clicks are reduced by up to 50 percent when the workload is spread across both hands, says VSI Risk Management and Ergonomics in “Reducing Physical Discomfort and Pain Among 3D Computer Users.” For more information about 3D mice, see

Contest terms and conditions
Sites to receive a 3D mouse via this promotion will be based on the date a valid purchase order or payment is received by Pointwise, whichever comes first.
