Got myself a new toy today, 3D Mouse Navigation from 3DConnexion and I got a tell you guys, Sketchup modeling became a totally different experience with that.
Anyone using Sketchup for Home Designs or doing wood working projects, I would strongly recommend getting that, you will have a totally different experience not to mention the speed when navigating complex designs:thumbsup:

I have one for about a year now and it really speeds things up. makes moving the model very easy while using the follow me tool on certain drawings

I have had one for years, the same one. I would love to have the space pilot pro, but kaching!

Some programs it doesn't work, but I think you may be able to program most of them. It's damn cool and damn handy. I too will highly suggest if you use any type of 3d design software (Revit *cough*) you will absolutely love it.

SketchUp too.

I'm not positive, but I do not think that CA is supported. I could be wrong.

I think you right Kent I tried with CA and it dint work, unless some settings must be rigged to work in a preview mode... I
didn't mess with that.

I was looking at that space pilot but there is so many buttons on it I don't know if this is for me. I was never good with things that got to many buttons on it lol... I like it nice and simple.

That looks pretty slick! I really need give something else a try, the regular mouse is hell on my wrist and forearm after drawing for a while.

"Santa" is bringing me one in the morning. Can't wait to get it hooked up and try it out.

(My son and I celebrate Christmas a day early as he gets the 25th with his mom.)
