3DConnexion generously sent me a Cad Mouse Pro Wireless to test and blog about, and I can securely say that, truly, it IS a definitive remote mouse for CAD experts as 3DConnexion state on their site. Over decades of CAD use, I have utilized a few brands of mice, and the Cad Mouse Pro Wireless is my new worldview, my new norm for any remaining mice to satisfy. The Cad Mouse Pro Wireless is a full-size mouse, and it looks enormous. In some cases, you will purchase a mouse on looks and catch work. You will take it home, and following a couple of long stretches of supported CAD use, you feel that it simply appears to be excessively little. This is basic with the mice you see explicitly showcased ‘for note pads’ that are designed for use by hobbits, and other little animals from Middle Earth. Not so with the Cad Mouse Pro Wireless. Indeed, it IS huge, yet it is a huge full-size mouse that is fits truly well in the hand, supporting the palm flawlessly and permitting the thumb to live pleasantly in the thumb lay as an afterthought.
It is a beautiful piece of ergonomic design that has not given me that dreadful wrist hurt/RSI that a ton of other more modest restrictive mice have previously, making it extraordinary for those more drawn out CAD meetings that we need to persevere. I need to drive AutoCAD and Revit consistently as I make video content for LinkedIn Learning, and it is a sly fox. I still can’t seem to feel any muscle or ligament torment while utilizing it, and it is entirely agreeable in the hand for every day CAD use. I love how 3DConnexion have managed the mouse catches. You presently have three mouse catches, in addition to your mouse wheel, making an aggregate of four catches you can utilize. This may look somewhat strange at first from the start, be that as it may, goodness, it is inconceivably valuable. This new center mouse button is designed explicitly for CAD clients.
It is extraordinary for CAD application capacities, and it can diminish that need for a powerful parchment wheel click, utilizing as indicated by the 3dConnexion site practically 60g less power. In this way, in addition to the fact that it cuts down on powerful snaps, however it additionally eliminates that ‘dead finger’ condition numerous expert CAD clients can get. The top cad mouse catches have a curved design, permitting the fingertips to sit pleasantly on the catches, situating them as a characteristic augmentation of the hand when utilizing the mouse. It gives a decent normal, natural feel to the mouse, particularly when working in AutoCAD. The thumb rest I referenced is additionally impeccably situated to permit you to utilize the two side catches, which is incredible, as they furnish you with a zoom in and zoom out capacity when in AutoCAD as well.
