3Dconnexion has announced that Autodesk has added native 3D mouse support in Autodeskrevit Architecture 2012, Autodeskrevit Structure 2012 and Autodesk MEP 2012 software applications.

The move is said to bring the full range of 3D mouse design benefits to Revit users.

3Dconnexion 3D mice are said to complement the intuitive interface and modelling and documentation tools in Revit software, helping to enhance every design workflow stage with increased productivity and comfort.

The company has also announced 3D mouse support in Autodesk Navisworks2012 software applications, bringing 3D mouse navigation benefits to model integration, review and analysis.

3D mice allow Revit and Navisworks users to pan, zoom and rotate simultaneously to deliver good navigation and intuitive control, helping to boost productivity and efficiency while enhancing user comfort.

Revit offers a comprehensive level of support for 3Dconnexion’s 3D mice, with an enhanced workflow at every step of the design process.

A two-handed workflow with a 3D mouse and traditional mouse results in intuitive and precise 3D navigation and a more fluid, productive design process.

With 3D mice, architects are able to easily visualise a building or model at the beginning of a project for a more tangible connection to a design, as well as aid in the earlier detection of design flaws.

3D mice help clients visualise a project with cinematic-like motions and smooth transitions from one perspective to another, giving the viewer a sense of being in the actual space.

An intuitive navigation bar features options for controlling the view, including navigation modes, keeping the scene upright, centre tool and 3Dconnextion driver control panel.

When working in 3D, users can quickly switch between object and walk/fly camera modes within the conceptual design, 3D model or client presentation.

In 2D, designers can continue editing while working in detail sheets and section views with pan and zoom functionality.

3Dconnextion’s Professional series products feature programmable function keys for instant access to commonly used application commands and Quickview navigation keys for one-touch access to specific views.

The entire 3Dconnexion product line is compatible with Revit and Navisworks 2012, including the Professional series with the Spacepilot Pro and Spaceexplorer, and the Standard series with the Spacenavigator and Spacenavigator for Notebooks.
