      Best product for any designer!

      As my previous post about the space navigator was popular I thought I would share my comments on my Space pilot. As I have been at university for 5 years studying to become a design engineer I got introduced to the 3D connections products from a friend and they have been a life saver. My previous post gives you all the information about the space navigator (Take a look).

      3D connections design products to help designers improve their work by making tasks simpler, reducing desiging time, and being general genusis lol

      The Space Pilot Pro is available all over the interenet but for more information about the product and company go to www.3Dconnections.co.uk

      The space pilot is a "3D mouse" for designers with many advantages, The space navigator (previous post) works as a 3D mouse to move images, designs around the screen. The space pilot is much more advanced, It can still work as a 3D mouse but with alot more features. For CAD designers like myself this has become so handy, I can design 3D models and this product helps me move the model 360 degrees. This space pilot is designed ergomincally to enhance it uses, the mouse is in the centre and there are many programmable buttoms in fingers reach. With the buttons you can create shortcuts , for example when your designing you may use a certain feature more often that others. Well you can program one of the buttons to act as this feature so you dont have to keep clicking on it, thus making tasks quicker!

      The space pilot also has a digital screen, which is very fancy! It can be used to read emails while you busy designing. It can check RSS feeds, checks or create tasks a number of things or it can just be a simple display to show what buttons are selected. Its also how you program the buttons to the commands you want.

      The product is very easy to use, setup and design with, It takes a bit of getting used to when you first use it but it doesnt take long before you no it inside out.

      The product gives the user "6 degrees of freedom". You can change the views of models, change the settings of how the 3D mouse works, you can zoom, pan, rotate, adjust speed for all of these.

      This product is a designers dream, I would deffinatly recommend this to help improve any designers work load. The only bad side to it is the price, it is prices rather high but for the performance I think it is well worth it. In the long run its going to save you time, effort and these all link to more productivity which leads to more money in the bank!
