The SpaceMouse Wireless, as well as the SpaceMouse Compact shown below, are the most simplified version in the product line. They use the same 6-degrees-of-freedom controller cap as the other SpaceMouse products. You can move the cap straight up/down/left/right/forward/backward to pan and zoom, or twist it to rotate. The weighted base and bottom grip help keep it in place as you work.
The 3DxWare 10 software gives you the power to customize the cap operation and sensitivity. Each SpaceMouse also has 2 programmable buttons on it that can access up to 16 different functions. You can bind a variety of things to each button, from single keys or commands, to customized macros containing multiple inputs. For full flexibility you can create and bind custom radial menus with up to 8 keys/commands/macros each. When you press a button the assigned radial menu will appear so you can click on, or gesture toward, the required function with your mouse.
The SpaceMouse Wireless uses 2.4GHz technology powered by a rechargeable Li-Ion battery. It can last up to a month before it needs charging again, based on 8 hours of use a day for 5 days a week. You can keep working while it’s charging by using the included USB cable to convert it into a wired device. The included 3Dconnexion receiver is low profile and can support up to 5 different wireless devices.
One of the benefits of a standard SpaceMouse is that their size and portability make them easy to take when you’re on the go. The SpaceMouse Wireless even comes with a lightweight durable carry case to keep it safe while traveling.
The SpaceMouse Wireless measures in at 78mm L x 78mm W x 53mm H (3.07” L x 3.07” W x 2.09” H) and weighs 450g (15.87oz). It has CE, FCC (Class B), BSMI, KCC, WEEE, WHQL product compliance and a 2 year manufacturers warranty. This device will work on both Windows and Mac operating systems.
