The Space Navigator 3D Mouse for Notebooks from 3Dconnexion is a mouse designed to facilitate work with 3D software applications for notebook users. This mouse is two thirds the size and half the weight of its desktop counterpart, making it ideal for mobile 3D users or as a second device for those with a SpacePilot PRO, SpacePilot or SpaceExplorer in the office.
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 notebook edition 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. 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).
