Description

One workaround is to quit Fusion and terminate the "3DconnexionHelper" process using Activity Monitor. Then, restart 3DconnexionHelper (open the "3Dconnexion" pane in System Preferences, say) and then launch Fusion 360. Rather than panning, rotating or zooming one step at a time, you can use the motion cap on the device to simultaneously pan, zoom and rotate. Some might question having wired devices (and there have been moves to release wireless devices elsewhere in 3Dconnexion’s range in the last year or two), but to my mind, this is a set-up that’s aimed fairly and squarely at those that are spending a lot of quality time at a desk. So, having wired devices makes sense — no charging, even if you’ve got a couple of cables trailing across your desk. This is a key thing to understand here. The shortcut keys are both application and context sensitive. If you’re using Inventor, then it’ll show a set of operations that are appropriate to Inventor — and that selection will differ if you’re in Part, assembly or drawing mode. Same goes for most mainstream systems we tried it with.

Some will be happy with whatever is supplied with their workstation, some will have a very specific preference — Logitech’s higher-end devices seem to be very popular in the CAD world. Some will try to keep the same mouse running for decades because it’s almost become part of their anatomy — I know when my original IntelliMouse (battered and broken as it was) gave up, I was more than a little upset. While we’re almost all used to using three buttons on our mice, that middle mouse is usually found under the scroll wheel. On the CadMouse, it has been separated entirely, nestling in between the left and right buttons. The same applies to this combination of devices — your dominant hand moves the tool (in this instance, the cursor with the mouse), while the non-dominant hand manipulates the object (the SpaceMouse). Firstly, to the left of the cap, you have a full set of keyboard modifiers (Escape, Control, Shift, Alt and new to the Enterprise, Enter, Delete, Space and Tab) . To the right of the cap, you have three customisable “view” buttons. These can be set to specific views (set by holding the button down until it registers). Below those you have a number of additional controls for view rotation, to zoom to fi t and a couple more.Then there’s the two rows of shortcut buttons across the top of the screen and the accompanying LCD screen, which is premium feature for the range.

I’ve always been a fan of 3Dconnexion and its range of 3D controllers. It has been one of the only hardware vendors to have served the market consistently for any period of time. The products are always built with the long term user in mind and it puts a lot of effort into supporting 3D design tool users.

SpaceMouse Enterprise Kit 2

While the SpaceMouse products give you a special purpose 3D control device and it has a niche to itself (practically), the CadMouse is a very different beast. Mice are a very personal preference. The shortcut buttons are there, but to be frank, I’ve never used them and I’d question if I could even reach the button behind the scroll wheel without contorting my fingers, but some will use it, I’m sure. CadMouse Compact Wireless, CadMouse Pro Wireless, CadMouse Pro Wireless Left, CadMouse Wireless, SpaceMouse Wireless and SpaceMouse Pro Wireless:

Design– It weighs only 1.76 pounds, but you would think more. The SpaceMouse Enterprise is solid device with the attention to materials and ergonomics 3Dconnexion has become known for. The button action is just right and the LCD display is positioned to be easily viewed and readable under different light conditions.

CadMouse

This is fundamental for those using CAD systems all day long, made even more useful when you consider that you have a wealth of options for customisation.
