Fremont, Calif. - To meet the
demands of design
engineers working in 3D applications, 3Dconnexion announced the new
SpacePilot Pro, designed to deliver advanced control of 3D models,
easier access to the
power of professional 3D applications, fewer interruptions in the
design workflow, and greater comfort. The SpacePilot Pro
features a new color LCD Workflow Assistant, second-generation
QuickView Navigation technology, Intelligent Function keys, and an
improved design for enhanced comfort and control.
The SpacePilot Pro 3D mouse provides the highest level of performance features ever available from 3Dconnexion, including:
Advanced MCAD Navigation: Five new dual-function QuickView Navigation
keys improve error detection, design review, and design presentation by
providing one-touch access to top and bottom, right and left, front and
back, two isometric views, and 90-degree view rotation of any view
either clockwise or counter-clockwise -- for a total of 32 views.
Intelligent Function Keys: Five new customizable, dual-function keys
offer one-touch access to 10 frequently used commands within any
supported 3D application. The SpacePilot Pro automatically detects the
active application and assigns appropriate function keys, whether
default or customized.
- Superior Comfort: The SpacePilot Pro has
a new sculpted, soft-coated wrist rest that positions the hand in
relation to the controller cap to support a balanced workflow. The
micro-precision, six-degrees-of-freedom sensor allows for fingertip
control with minimal effort from the arm, wrist, and hand. The
intuitive and symmetrical layout of the function keys makes the device
usable with either hand.
The SpacePilot Pro is backed by a three-year warranty, and is currently available at a suggested retail price of $499.
SpacePilot Pro is supported by Windows XP, Windows Vista, Sun Solaris 8
(SPARC), Sun Solaris 10 (x86), and Linux (Redhat Enterprise Linux WS 4,
SuSE 9.3 or later). Linux and Solaris support workflow assistant
function key assignments only.
The entire 3Dconnexion product
line, including the Professional Series with the SpacePilot (MSRP $399)
and SpaceExplorer (MSRP $299), and the Standard Series with the
SpaceNavigator (MSRP $99) and SpaceNavigator for Notebooks (MSRP $129),
are available from professional CAD resellers and major online
resellers including CDW, Insight, PC Connection, and PC Mall.
