Space Pilot Pro Powerful Application Control: Five new fully customized dual function intelligent function keys provide instant access to 10 frequently used commands. Space Pilot Pro recognizes the active application and work environment automatically assigns the appropriate commands. Advanced MCAD Navigation:Space Pilot Pro features the most advanced six degree of freedom (6 DOF) sensor technology. Gently push, pull, twist or tilt. The Compact controller cap to smoothly pan, zoom and rotate 3D models. Its like reaching into the screen and holding the models into your hand. The second generation quick view Navigation keys provide fingertip access to 32 standard view giving on parallel level of control that encourages model exploration leading to improved error detection and design quality. Get your wings in no time at all: 3Dconnection's Configuration Wizard is an interactive tool that uses animation and imagery to guide you through controller cap movement and configuring your preferences. The Configuration Wizard also provides demonstration applications so you can practice or start using the device right away. Plus, your 3DxSoftware will never be out of date, because 3Dconnection's Update Wizard keeps you up-to-date on the latest OS and application versions and new features. Superior Comfort: The soft coated sculpted wrist rest position the hand perfectly while the compact controller cap guides your finger into the ideal position for precise and effortless control. The most frequently used function keys are conveniently positioned ensuring a comfortable working experience even for the longest design session. 

Space Navigator for Notebook Now a precision 3D mouse you can take with you: Compact and ultra-light, SpaceNavigator for Notebooks is the perfect travel companion for 3D designers and enthusiasts. 3D portability: Designed for mobile professionals and enthusiasts, the compact SpaceNavigator for Notebooks is only half the weight of its desktop counterpart. A small footprint makes it easy to use-even on airline trays-and a travel case makes transport effortless.

Space Navigator 3Dconnection has made powerful 3D navigation accessible and affordable for architects, artists, designers and anyone else who wants to enjoy the 3D experience.Ideal more than 100 of today's most popular and powerful 3D applications. SpaceNavigator is a virtual extension of you: Pressure sensing technology allows the controller cap to become a virtual extension of you. Push, pull, twist or tilt the cap a fraction of inch to simultaneously pan, zoom and rotate 3D imagery. Increase pressure to go fast or decrease pressure to make intricate adjustments. Why use a SpaceNavigator instead of a mouse? The key advantage of a SpaceNavigator over a mouse and keyboard is the ease of performing intricate adjustments to camera views and models with out repeatedly stopping to change directions, zoom, or rotate models. With a SpaceNavigator you can do all three at once.
