"In 2015 we developed and launched CadMouse, the first desktop mouse specifically designed for CAD users. Today we are proud to announce the CadMouse Wireless, which incorporates the advanced features of the CadMouse while meeting the specific requirements of a mobile CAD workplace”, says Antonio Pascucci, VP of products at 3Dconnexion. “In this way, we offer our customers a high precision tool without the need to compromise for a mobile setup”.
Gaining full 3Dconnexion 3D mice support to Vectorworks 2017 gives its users a lot more power in the area of 3D model creation, editing and navigation.

Wacom’s new Bamboo Spark is great fun to play with. It’s a new take on graphics tablet technology where your pen and paper notes and sketches are converted straight to a digital image on your device. As Gizmodo’s resident cosplayer I went hands-on with the Spark, using it to design one of my planned costumes for next year.
The 3Dconnexion CadMouse is said to be the first mouse designed specifically for CAD users.
“We took the time to understand what [CAD users] needed before developing a combination of smart hardware and software features,” says Antonio Pascucci, vice-president of products at 3Dconnexion, the company known for its SpacePilot, SpaceMouse, and SpaceNavigator 3D navigation devices.
With the strap line “Fire up your creativity!” it seems Fuel3D, the company behind a new affordable 3D scanner with all the bells and whistles, is already there and encouraging us to join them.
The company launched its Kickstarter campaign late last week in a bid to fund production of the Fuel3D handheld scanner and it seems they have pitched it rather well because the $75k target has already been exceeded, and then some. At time of writing pledges total $166,408, with 26 days still to go.
