the new features in Solid Edge ST3, 3D mice help design professionals to
develop their 3D models by delivering a level of control that is unattainable
with a traditional mouse and keyboard.
Solid Edge ST3 with a 3D mouse includes:
Navigation and Control: 3D mice allow design professionals to
simultaneously pan, zoom and rotate as if they are holding the model in their
hand. The patented six-degrees-of-freedom (6DoF) sensor is capable of detecting
input as small as four micrometers for smooth and precise control.
Enhanced Simulation Review: ST3 allows designers to see what's happening
inside their model via improved post processing display capabilities with
clipping planes. 3D mice further augment this new visualization process by
allowing users to easily review simulation results.
Accelerated Productivity: ST3 features the new capability to merge 2D
drawings with existing 3D models for expanded productivity. 3Dconnexion 3D mice
help streamline this process, enabling users to more easily view, modify and
verify the fidelity of 2D dimensions as they are applied to the 3D model.
Improved Efficiency: Programmable buttons provide quick access to
commonly used application commands, enabling designers to better focus on their
The entire 3Dconnexion product line is compatible with Solid Edge ST3,
including the Professional Series with the SpacePilot PRO and SpaceExplorer,
and the Standard Series with the SpaceNavigator and SpaceNavigator for
A make-your-own Star Wars Sith Lightsaber hilt is heftier and better-looking than most others out there, according to its maker, Sean Charlesworth. You can 3D print it from free source files, and there's even a hardware kit available -- not free -- so you can build one just in time for Halloween.
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.
