3Dconnexion has announced that its SpaceNavigator input device is now supported by Graphisoft’s ArchiCAD 11 (on Mac OS X v10.4 “Tiger”).
The SpaceNavigator is a “3D mouse” that enables you to scale, zoom, rotate and move objects in 3D software more easily. A controller cap lets you pan, zoom and rotate without having to select commands from the menu or use the keyboard. It costs $59 for the “Personal Edition” or $99 for the “Standard Edition.”
ArchiCAD 11 is 3D architectural design software. Using the SpaceNavigator, ArchiCAD users can better control 3D objects when creating designs using ArchiCAD’s “3D Virtual Building” system.
