3Dconnexion’s latest driver update brings 3D navigation and a streamlined 3D mouse user interface to Google SketchUp. 3Dconnexion says these new enhancements give the SketchUp community increased control of their designs and their workspace.
3Dconnexion’s new intelligent 3D navigation feature automatically follows the point of interest to continuously determine the optimal center of rotation when controlling spin, tilt, and roll motions. The latest driver update also streamlines the 3D mouse user interface with a pop-up menu to centralize all 3D mouse related options. In addition, new “helicopter” mode provide a more consistent navigation experience with Google Earth.
These new enhancements are currently available for Windows and will be available for Mac in September, via a free software update. This update is available for the entire 3Dconnexion product line, including the Professional Series with the SpacePilot PRO (MSRP $399) and SpaceExplorer (MSRP $299), and the Standard Series with the SpaceNavigator (MSRP $99) and SpaceNavigator for Notebooks (MSRP $129).
