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 www.3Dconnexion.com.
