The SpaceNavigator SE 3D Mouse from 3Dconnexion is a mouse designed to facilitate work with 3D software applications. Unlike a conventional mouse, which is limited to movement on two flat planes, this unit supports effortless motion in all directions. Simply push, pull, tilt, or twist the controller cap to simultaneously pan, zoom, and rotate 3D imagery on X, Y, and Z axes. This is the standard edition (SE) of the SpaceNavigator mouse and includes an unlimited use license appropriate for commercial purposes, as well as full phone, e-mail, and online support.

Increasing or decreasing pressure with the controller determines the speed with which the mouse responds. Its small footprint is well suited for studio or mobile work. It is compatible with most standard 3D applications and automatically recognizes such programs already loaded on your computer, including but not limited to Autodesk Inventor, SolidWorks, Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire, Solid Edge, UGS NX, and a host of other CAD and DCC applications.

This model includes (2) programmable function keys. When applications are pre-installed on your computer, the mouse will revert to default function configurations associated with each program. It is compatible with the following operating systems: Windows (2000, XP, Vista), UNIX/Linux, and Mac OS X (10.4.6 and later).

True 3D Control
Push, pull, tilt, or twist the controller cap to simultaneously pan, zoom, and rotate 3D imagery on X, Y, and Z axes.
Pressure-Sensitive
The amount of pressure applied to the control knob determines the speed with which it responds.
Mobile
The unit's small footprint and included travel pouch make this solution well suited for mobile work.
Programmable Functions
You can program its (2) custom function buttons or associate the buttons with the default controls of the 3D application you are using.
Interface USB
Wireless Support No

      I've used products similar to the SpaceNavigator for over a decade (Magellan, Spaceball, similar devices). This devices takes up far less desk space, is easier to use, uses USB instead of a serial connection, and is FAR less expensive than previous generation devices.
      I especially like the size and weight of the SpaceNavigator combined with its sensitivity. It is very easy to use and doesn't wear out your hand like the older (stiffer) devices did. Several colleagues of mine that didn't like the older devices really like these. In particular, people with small hands like these a lot better than other devices they've tried.
      I beyond the comfort and desk space savings, I like that I can easily pack the SpaceNavigator in a bag and take it with me if I want to. They make a laptop-specific version that's even more compact, but I haven't felt the need to get one specifically for the laptop yet. The control "cap" is just the right size for my hand, not too big, not too small, so for my usage, I will probably just continue to drag the standard model around with me when I go places.

      This device does exactly what it is suppossed to do. It navigates google earth with ease, and it allows you to add to an existing mouse the added functionality to relieve wrist or tendon problems that result from long term mouse controller use. I do wish it had more plug an play to work with older and newer 3D games such as homeworld or flight simulation programs. All in all it has a future to grow, and the company does release SDK development software. If you no how to decipher the Hieroglyphics, you can program the navigator to be used in other applications. Im not sure how true this is or whether it is all smoke and mirrors. Ill give the benefit of the doubt. C+ to Grow in my Book.

        Love it.
        Fast shipping from B&H.
        3D Mouse was super easy to setup right out of the box for the application I was using.
        Feels nice. very heavey in place on desktop or comfortable in palm of one hand.

        Comments about 3Dconnexion SpaceNavigator SE 3D Mouse:

        Brilliant piece of equipment for 3D modeling and architectural programs. Comfortable, very easy to use and speeds up workflow by about 100%. I use it for stuff like 3DS Max, Revit, CAD. Can't work without it. Well built, well worth the price.

                I'm impressed with the device. It is well made, very heavy, so it stays in place on your desktop. If you haven't used a 3d mouse before, it takes a short amount of time to get use to it. After getting acclimated, you will love it. It will give you a lot more control with your sketch up, if you render. Get one.

                  I use the Space Navigator to effortlessly FLY the PLANET, within the FREE version of Google Earth on my Mac. Excellent intuitive "joystick" movement allows infinite paths and views to evaluate landscapes, viewsheds, watersheds, veg patterns, communities, project area context and spatial configuration. My 5 year old grandson uses it to visit the towns and homes of family members and school chums - it is a great planet exploration and travel tool.

                  Comments about 3Dconnexion SpaceNavigator SE 3D Mouse:

                  I've only had this device for a few weeks but now when ever I sit down to a CAD Workstation that doesn't have 3D control, I know that I'm not nearly productive as I could be.

                  The only draw back is the blue LED lights inside the device are WAY to bright, they even hurt my eyes when I'm in a well lit room. Although you can disable the LEDs; every time that the device is unpluged from a machine the LEDs need to be turned off again. (Would be nice if they could be dimmed).

                  Bottom line: If you do any type of work that requires manipulation of 3D data, then this entry level product is a must. I'm thinking about upgrading to a SpacePilot and using the SpaceNavigator for my laptop.

                        This is the best tool you can have when working with Autodesk Inventor. It makes tough jobs easy. All movements of the CAD objects on the screen are very smooth. Move, zoom, and rotate all at the same time. You can not do all those moves at the same time with a mouse and keyboard. It will increase your productivity by 20 percent on the first day.

                          great tool for 3d softwares
                          A bit hard to get used to, but is a must for
                          Any person working in 3d.

                              THIS DEVICE WORKS VERY NICE WITH SOLIDWORKS. WHEN DRAWING LARGE ASSEMBLIES, IT IS THE BEST. CAN PAN AND ROTATE WHILE DRAWING WITH OPPOSITE HAND. REALLY HELPS WITH MATES.SEEING MY MODELS LIKE I HAVE NEVER DID IN THE PAST. WORKS GOOD WITH GOOGLE EARTH.
                              SHOULD BE STANDARD EQUIPMENT WHEN USE SOLIDWORKS.

                                          This tool is used in conjunction with the mouse to manipulate objects in 3D. I am using it with Altium Designer and TurboCAD Pro. Greatly simplifies moving around in and visualizing the model. The unit is heavy enough that it does not move unless you physically pick it up.

                                            I use the spacenavigator with Autodesk Inventor on a daily basis. It works great for that. I haven't tried it anywhere else. The only catch I have found with it, is that everytime I shut down my computer and turn it back on, I must unplug the Spacenavigator and plug it back in for it to work.

                                              Installed quickly and correctly right out of the box.

                                              I am using it to record Machinima in Second Life.

                                              Although there are suggestions for making adjustments to the mouse, so far I am satisfied with the default settings, and after only a few hours use, I find it easy to fly the camera in Second Life.

                                              If you didn't know, the Navigator does not replace the conventional mouse. The default controls (used in Second Life), attach camera control to the Navigator, the arrow keys control avatar movement, and the regular mouse is used to select objects. There is detailed help for this in the game.

                                              Supposedly the Navigator can be used to move and rotate selected objects. I have not figured out how to do that yet.

                                              This is installed on a Windows 7 64 bit machine.

                                                Very useful for CAD software users, keeps wrist in a more natural position when compared with a mouse.
                                                It is like holding your virtual CAD data or parts in your hand.
                                                Fun to use with google earth.
                                                I wish i could use it with more everyday software.
