Waltham, Massachusetts – January 26, 2014 - 3Dconnexion Inc. has announced that it is accepting applications from colleges and universities in the U.S. for a 3D mouse grant for the spring semester, 2014. With a 3D mouse, users of 3D CAD applications can pan, zoom, and rotate their digital 3D content as if they’re holding the model in their hand, achieving a level of control that’s not possible with a traditional mouse and keyboard only.
“We are proud to be offering grants of our 3D mice to schools,” said Mark Driscoll, Senior Director at 3Dconnexion. “To prepare students for their professional careers, it’s critical they have experience with the same design tools they’ll be expected to use in the industry. Independent research shows that 3D mouse users are more productive, design quality is improved, and physical fatigue and discomfort is reduced.”
All grant awards include a lab pack of 3Dconnexion Professional Series 3D mice, free setup assistance and essential on-site introductory training provided by members of the 3Dconnexion Education Team. Applications may be submitted on behalf of your school at http://info.3dconnexion.com/enter-your-classroom-to-win.
3Dconnexion 3D mice revolutionize the way people interact with 3D applications, providing a more natural and intuitive way to interact with digital 3D content. Supported by today’s most popular and powerful 3D applications, including SolidWorks, Autodesk Inventor, AutoCAD, Siemens NX, Solid Edge, Creo, Catia, Rhino, SketchUp, 3ds Max, and many more, 3Dconnexion’s award-winning 3D mice are used by engineers, designers, architects and artists across the globe.
