3Dconnexion 3D Mice Now Supported by IMSI/Design TurboCAD Deluxe 14, TurboCAD Pro 14 and TurboSketch Studio

Retail CAD Market to Enjoy Increased 3D Design Control

San Jose, Calif. – Jan. 15, 2008 – 3Dconnexion, a Logitech company, today announced that its award-winning line of 3D mice is now supported by IMSI/Design’s TurboCAD® Deluxe 14, the powerful 2D and 3D full-featured CAD and drafting program, TurboCAD Pro 14, a complete 3D solid modeling design solution for engineers, architects and designers, and TurboSketch™ Studio, an innovative plug-in powered by LightWorks® for creating photorealistic models using Google™ SketchUp®.

3Dconnexion’s line of 3D mice give CAD designers working in TurboCAD and TurboSketch Studio more control when creating presentation-ready home plans, technical drawings, mechanical designs, artistic illustrations, creative projects, and more. Unlike mice confined to motion on two flat planes, 3Dconnexion’s 3D mice allow effortless movement and control within the 3D workspace. By simply moving the controller cap, CAD designers can simultaneously pan, zoom and rotate without stopping to select commands. A subtle increase or decrease in pressure accelerates or slows motion, enabling precise micro-adjustments.

“With support for 3Dconnexion's line of 3D mice, we are enabling our customers to enjoy an even better design experience within TurboCAD,” said Robert Mayer, co-founder and chief operating officer of IMSI/Design. “We strive to make CAD applications that reach not only mechanical and architectural designers, but also the home professional, and 3Dconnexion’s line of 3D mice fall right in line with that goal.”

“IMSI/Design’s support marks 3Dconnexion’s entry into the retail CAD market, and enables TurboCAD and TurboSketch Studio users to benefit from the enhanced 3D mouse workflow employed by professional CAD designers today,” said Ziva Nissan, 3Dconnexion’s director of product marketing.

3Dconnexion provides advanced and affordable 3D mice that are supported by more than 120 of today’s most popular 3D applications, including Autodesk® Maya®, Autodesk® 3ds Max®, Adobe® Photoshop® CS3 Extended, Cinema 4D, form•Z, and all of the top-tier 3D CAD applications.

    I'm using SpaceNawigator everyday and this is a great help. This "toy" increase productivity. In near future I will buy SpaceExplorer. I use SpaceNawigator mostly to SolidWorks and SolidCAM software. In first touch is hardly to operate but after about 30 minutes you know how it works and how operate. Before SpaceNawigator I used other manipulator so I had a knowladge about adventages this solution. I'm highly recommend this "toy".
