3Dconnexion 3D mice provide advanced
levels of control and productivity to the Vectorworks community, complementing
the improved 3D environment integrated in the new platform. 3D mice further
enable professionals to draft any shape, on any plane, and in any view in an
intuitive manner that augments the simplified and unified design experience
offered in Vectorworks 2011.
When working in the true 3D modeling environment in Vectorworks 2011,
3Dconnexion 3D mice provide a level of design interaction that is unattainable
with a traditional mouse and keyboard. With a 3D mouse, professionals can
simultaneously pan, zoom and rotate as if they are holding imagery or models in
their hand with precise control and natural movements.
programmable buttons featured on 3Dconnexion 3D mice provide quick access to
commonly used Vectorworks commands, enabling designers to focus more on their
models. The resulting increased design performance helps professionals and
teams tackle time-to-market pressures and varying design needs with greater
The entire 3Dconnexion product line
is compatible with Vectorworks 2011, including the Professional Series with the
SpacePilot PRO (MSRP $399) and SpaceExplorerTM (MSRP $299), and the Standard
Series with the SpaceNavigator (MSRP $99) and SpaceNavigator for Notebooks
Researchers working with additive manufacturing have said multimaterial techniques will allow industry “to fabricate materials with combinations of density, strength, and thermal expansion that do not exist [yet].”
The term "multiphysics" is used to describe the simulation of multiple types of physics and their influence on one another -- for example, the investigation of the behavior of a chemical in liquid form will involve both chemistry and fluid dynamics.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
