Google SketchUp and the 3D Mouse

What is a 3D mouse?

A 3D mouse is exactly what it says - it is a computer mouse that functions in a 3D world.  Until recently most software was limited just 2 dimensions but now all that has changed.  We no longer live and design in flatland and designs created in programs similar to Google SketchUp are more and more being created and developed in 3D.  A traditional mouse functions adequately but has serious limitations in navigating in a 3D world.

The world of design is changing and the way you navigate it is changing as well...


With the use of a 3D mouse you can now Pan, zoom and rotate and easily navigate through the three-dimensional worlds you create. 

3D mouse users benefit from a more natural approach to the 3D environment.

3D mice, like the ones offered at 3Dconnexion provide the user the ability to navigate in a 3D enviornment  by gently pushing manipulating the mouse to easily pan, zoom and rotate models or camera views. 

3D Mouse Benefits

  • Increase Productivity by more than 20%*1: Save time by navigating your model with the 3D mouse in one hand, while simultaneously using your traditional mouse to select, create and edit.
  • Enhanced Comfort: By spreading the workload across both hands, you reduce traditional mouse clicks by up to 50%*2.
  • Fun
  • Design Performance*1: Whether you're working on a sketch or a complex 3D model, the superior navigation experience encourages levels of model exploration that are crucial to avoiding costly design errors.
