3Dconnexion SpaceMouse Enterprise

Munich, Germany – April 25 2016 – Get ready to take your CAD designing to the next level with the release of the new 3Dconnexion SpaceMouse Enterprise, the 3D mouse built specifically for CAD professionals who set themselves the highest possible standards, during complex and extended working sessions.

Drawing from the style and power of the award-winning SpaceMouse Pro and SpacePilot Pro 3D mice, 3Dconnexion builds on the past to reinvent the future with the SpaceMouse Enterprise.

“In the last few years we’ve gained even more insight into the needs of today’s design professionals. Based on that input, we developed the SpaceMouse Enterprise to provide the most advanced 3D input device for professional CAD users to date,” says Antonio Pascucci, 3Dconnexion’s vice president of product development.  “This powerful but easy-to-use tool provides much requested new features, taking a CAD users “two-handed power” workflow to a completely new level.”
