3Dconnexion 3D Mice Now Supported by Autodesk 2010 Product Family
Fremont, Calif. - May 12, 2009 - 3Dconnexion's line of 3D mice is now supported by AutoCAD 2010 and Autodesk Inventor 2010 software, giving design engineers added control over the enhanced 3D design capabilities offered in the latest platforms. Using 3Dconnexion 3D mice, professionals can interact more intuitively with new features in Autodesk 3D environments such as the free-form design tools in AutoCAD 2010 and fly-through navigation in Autodesk Inventor 2010, improving overall workflows and design performance.
"3Dconnexion's 3D mice are powerful devices for design engineers working in the new suite of Autodesk 2010 software applications, helping them work more productively at a time when operational efficiency and design innovation are more valuable than ever," said Dieter Neujahr, president of 3Dconnexion. "Using a 3D mouse, particularly the new SpacePilot™ PRO with its advanced features, strongly complements the new capabilities introduced with the 2010 Autodesk family of software, enabling design engineers to work smarter, faster and more intuitively."
Professionals working in AutoCAD 2010 using a 3Dconnexion 3D mouse can seamlessly create and transform almost any shape with the same ease as drawing it free-hand. In addition, support for fly through navigation in Autodesk Inventor 2010 enables design engineers to explore designs by moving a camera with a 3D mouse. The ability to look around a design as if holding the camera in your hand is very useful for design reviews of large assemblies and checking for design accuracy.
"The new family of Autodesk 2010 applications provides a host of powerful 3D tools that help today's designers and engineers expand their creativity and design performance," said Brenda Discher, vice president of industry marketing for the Manufacturing Industry Group at Autodesk. "AutoCAD, Autodesk Inventor and the complete solution for Digital Prototyping help users digitally design, visualize and simulate the performance of a product before it is built. 3Dconnexion's 3D mice complement these priorities, enabling customers to interact even more directly with their workflows and better visualize key elements of their designs."
