Space Mice

About 3Dconnexion®

Having sold over 1.2 million devices globally, 3Dconnexion® has solidified its position as the world’s leading provider of 3D mice for 3D design and visualisation professionals.

Supported by today’s most popular and powerful 3D applications, 3Dconnexion® 3D mice offer a more intuitive and natural way to interact with digital 3D content. 3Dconnexion’s award-winning 3D mice serve a wide variety of industries and are used by engineers, designers, architects and artists worldwide.

What is a 3D mouse?

3Dconnexion’s family of 3D mouse products provide a comfortable and natural way to interact with digital content in the world’s most popular CAD and creative applications making it easier to focus on your task rather than interacting with your software.

The 3D mouse takes care of positioning your model or view and providing access to your favourite application commands, freeing up your normal mouse to do what it was designed for – moving the cursor to select, edit and create.

The 3D mouse also provides a consistent navigation experience so if you use more than one 3D application, you don’t need to adjust to different navigation methods as you switch between them.

Comfort – Fewer Clicks, Less Pain, More Fun

You got into CAD for the love of design. Not for wrist, arm and hand pain that puts you out of commission. Our family of SpaceMouse products are proven to reduce pain and fatigue thanks to the natural two-handed work-style that means you move and click your normal mouse a lot less while achieving a lot more.

But don’t take our word for it. Independent studies of users show:

Reduce pain

97% of users reported less pain when using a SpaceMouse alongside their normal mouse1.

Increase comfort

Using a SpaceMouse reduced pain by 61% in their first month of use and by 77% in six months1.

Minimise muscle fatigue

Both right and left hand motions were reduced by nearly two-thirds, meaning dramatically less muscle fatigue2.

Increase Productivity and Profitability

Using a 3Dconnexion SpaceMouse is proven to increase productivity and precision.

On average, 3D mouse users consider themselves to be 21% more productive1 than when not using a 3D mouse, thanks to the balanced and co-operative two-handed work-style where you can do two things at the same time.

But productivity and speed don’t mean you have to sacrifice quality. The SpaceMouse gives you a deeper connection to your model, increasing error detection and design quality.

In fact, more than 84% of CAD design engineers report a noticeable or significant improvement in their product designs and their ability to detect design problems as a result of using a SpaceMouse1.

That means you and your team produce more and higher quality deliverables on deadline. It’s an investment that pays for itself in no time at all.
