SpaceBall 5000
®
The Next Generation
3D Motion Controller
Two-Handed Power
Over 200,000 designers worldwide have already
experienced the benefits of 3Dconnexion motion
controllers. The SpaceBall 5000 delivers the comfort
and efficiency of a proven two-handed work style with
even greater performance than before.
Use the motion controller to position, view and
navigate 3D models and data sets, while directing the
standard mouse to simultaneously select, create, edit
and annotate.
Saves Time and Reduces Discomfort
A two-handed work style is easier and more efficient.
Users of 3Dconnexion motion controllers report up
to a 30% increase in productivity and up to 50% less
repetitive mouse movement. Programmable buttons
add even more convenience and functionality.
SpaceBall 5000 lets you take advantage of both hands
on your computer. Demand the best tools for the job
and grab onto the power of your software with both
hands.
