The 3Dconnexion SpacePilot connects you to the 3D design process like never before. Its optical sensor technology and ergonomic design combine to deliver unprecedented control and fewer distractions.

Use the SpacePilot in your non-dominant hand to position, rotate, pan and zoom your model in one single, fluid motion. Use the mouse with your other hand to simultaneously edit the model or select menu items.

50% fewer mouse clicks. 20% more productivity.
3DConnexion SpacePilot

Gone are the days when 3D navigation meant endless mouse clicks to move around an object or to fly through space and remembering how to change views and control objects within the X, Y, Z axes...one tedious step at a time. Plus, it is no longer necessary to remember different application's unique commands for manipulating 3D objects or scenes.

With 3Dconnexion's SpacePilot, you simply push, pull, tilt or twist the SpacePilot's controller cap to simultaneously pan, zoom and rotate 3D imagery. You'll unify navigation systems from mulitple 3D programs and experience a natural way to work (and play) in 3D environments using 3Dconnexion's award-winning technology.

3D navigation has never been this intuitive.

Unique adaptive sensing technology gives you the functionality you want, the instant you want it. Commands become available on the LCD and dynamically update as you switch between applications or work in different modes within an application. Plus, an array of extendable, programmable speed keys - including Control, Fit, View and keyboard modifiers - help you stay immersed in your design.

This innovative 3D input device:

  • Boosts productivity by over 20%, while reducing mouse usage by 50%
  • Unlocks the power of your 3D applications with 21+ speed keys
  • Automatically maps functions on keys as applications change
  • Enables no-look access to modifier keys on device
  • Provides instant positioning of models and scenes with Fit and View keys
  • Reduces fatigue with its ergonomic design and soft, sculpted palm rest
Preconfigured. Easy to customize.

SpacePilot's software automatically recognizes the programs already loaded on your computer-such as Autodesk Inventor, SolidWorks, Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire, Solid Edge, UGS NX, and a host of other CAD and DCC applications-and installs default configurations that predefine the functions assigned to programmable buttons.

Get your wings in no time at all.

3Dconnexion's Configuration Wizard is an interactive tool that uses animation and imagery to guide you through controller cap movement and configuring your preferences. The Configuration Wizard also provides demonstration applications so you can practice or start using the device right away.

Plus, your 3DxSoftware will never be out of date, because 3Dconnexion's Update Wizard keeps you up-to-date on the latest OS and application versions and new features.

Intelligent Function Keys

Each MCAD application environment, such as sketch, part or assembly has its own set of tools and processes. SpacePilot PRO automatically recognizes the active application and environment and assigns 10 relevant application commands to its dual-function Intelligent Function Keys. Visual feedback on function key assignment is provided by the color LCD. This seamless process ensures the right tools are available at the right time and as there's no need to use the standard mouse or keyboard to select the commands, users experience a significantly streamlined workflow.
