Jun 3, 2014 -- BricsCAD V14 now supports 3Dconnexion® 3D mice, the premier 3D navigation devices for engineers, architects and 3D professionals. With 3Dconnexion 3D mouse support, BricsCAD's familiar .dwg CAD features and 3D Direct Modeling capabilities are even more powerful. Users can simultaneously pan, zoom and rotate 2D/3D content while the standard mouse is free to select menu items or parts of the model.
Highlights of BricsCAD’s 3D mouse integration include:
- Intelligent 3D Navigation — The 3D mouse automatically follows the point of interest to continuously determine the optimal center of rotation. When combined with 3Dconnexion’s patented 6-degrees-of-freedom navigation, users benefit from the most natural 3D navigation experience ever.
- Multiple 3D Navigation Modes — Including Object, Helicopter, Camera and Target Camera modes, enabling the user to customize the 3D mouse experience to their workflow.
- 2D Navigation Mode — 3Dconnexion 3D mice also deliver value in BricsCAD’s 2D modes by allowing users to simultaneously pan and zoom the worksheet.
"We are excited to introduce 3Dconnexion 3D mouse support in BricsCAD V14,” says Erik De Keyser, CEO of Bricsys. “We have delivered a rich 3D mouse integration, that provides smooth and intuitive navigation across 2D and 3D workflows, complementing our goal to enable modeling and designing at unmatched speed."
BricsCAD V14 supports the entire line of 3Dconnexion 3D mice, including the new 3Dconnexion SpaceMouse® Wireless, the world’s first wireless 3D mouse.
Says Erik De Keyser: “3Dconnexion devices give users the ability to navigate their 3D world with more precision, speed and efficiency—improving designs and the design experience as a whole. We’re excited to now bring that functionality to BricsCAD V14.”
3Dconnexion’s 3D mice revolutionize the way people interact with 3D applications, providing a more natural and intuitive way to interact with digital 3D content. 3Dconnexion 3D mice provide an intuitive, balanced and cooperative work style that results in increased productivity, improvements in creativity and enhanced comfort.
Supported by today’s most popular and powerful 3D applications, 3Dconnexion’s award-winning 3D mice serve a wide variety of industries and are used by engineers, designers, architects and artists across the globe.
