SpaceBall 3003 FLX

3 D    M O T I O N    C O N T R O L L E R



Intuitively Navigate and Explore 3D Models
To take a close look at something in the real world, you pick it up and examine it from every angle. It’s so natural you don’t even think about it. Now working in 3D is just this intuitive. With our 3D motion controller, you can intuitively zoom, pan and rotate models, exploring and navigating your designs as naturally as if they were objects in the real world.

Control up to six degrees of freedom with pinpoint precision and simultaneously pan, zoom and rotate 3D objects in every direction.

This Innovative 3D Controller Frees You To:
• Move Objects without Interrupting Your Flow
• Early Detection of Design Errors
• Reduce Design Costs
• Be More Creative
• Streamline the Design Process
• Easily Accomplish Difficult Manoeuvres
