If you're a busy professional who spends much of your day CADding, you will appreciate the benefits of a 3D mouse. Used in conjunction with your standard mouse, a 3D mouse provides a smooth and intuitive 3D navigation as well as quick access to the commands you use over and over again.

We’re pleased to announce a new partnership with 3Dconnexion, creator of the CadMouse and SpaceMouse 3D mice, which give CAD professionals the extraordinary ability to simultaneously pan, zoom and rotate models while selecting with your traditional mouse. This unique two-handed workflow makes design work more efficient, comfortable and fun.

3Dconnexion’s family of 3D mice help boost comfort and productivity.

We are thrilled to be able to deliver this new level of performance right in a web browser. Many of Onshape’s advanced users have been asking for 3D mouse support.

Please note that 3Dconnexion drivers work on Windows and Mac operating systems and Chrome or Firefox browsers.
