Unreal Engine, Unity and iClone are the latest applications with new, fully compatible support for 3Dconnexion devices.

3Dconnexion, manufacturer of the 3D mouse range SpaceMouse, is offering a series of new software integrations that complete its portfolio for artists and 3D creators. 

Unreal Engine, Unity and iClone are the latest applications with new, fully compatible support for 3Dconnexion devices. They are joining an extensive portfolio of apps—Autodesk 3ds Max, Adobe Substance Painter, Blender, Cinema 4D, Maya, ZBrush—completing a solution that supports the digital content creation workflow.

“We believe these new integrations, alongside our already existing support, will help thousands of designers and creators enjoy a more immersive and intuitive experience in their workflow,” says Antonio Pascucci, chief executive officer at 3Dconnexion. “The simultaneous use of both hands when manipulating and interacting with the digital art offers a natural way to work, which will enhance creativity.”

While they are best known for their SpaceMouse products, 3Dconnexion's product collection, such as the SpaceMouse and CadMouse family, as well as the newer Keyboard Pro with Numpad, allow users to navigate quickly, providing simple access to application commands and improving work quality.

Historically designed for engineers, primarily in the aerospace industry, these products are used in CAD software, where navigation, precision and efficiency are needed. Adding this new support for various digital content creation applications demonstrates 3Dconnexion's commitment to helping digital artists enhance their work.

“Pre-set profiles with the most popular commands for each app, automatically adapting as you switch between apps, as well as endless command customization options make this the ultimate solution for digital artists,” says Robert Stadie, product manager at 3Dconnexion
