Mastercam X Includes Support for 3D Motion Controller Technology-Increased Productivity Made Possible with Mastercam and 3Dconnexion
Mastercam announces support for 3Dconnexion's line of motion controllers with the new release of Mastercam X. Default configurations for Mastercam X are part of the motion controller driver, giving users increased productivity.
CNC Software's President Mark Summers states, "3Dconnexion's drivers have Mastercam settings built in and are pre-set with common Mastercam X functions and shortcut keys already programmed for you. Mastercam X has also been fine-tuned to support all of 3Dconnexion's motion controllers to allow a smooth transition for our customers."
A motion controller can add value to every step of your work. Motion controllers from 3Dconnexion are proven to reduce design times and help your company become more efficient with Mastercam X software (or other design, manufacturing, and analysis software).
A long-time Mastercam user, Larry "Tony G" Garibaldi from CNC Me says, "Using the motion controller allows me to easily roll my models around in space while I'm working, without ever having to take my hand off of the mouse or hit the keyboard."
3Dconnexion is leading the market with an array of award-winning motion controllers that can be used with Mastercam's latest software package. The motion controller is not meant to replace the mouse, but function together with it, creating a powerful, intuitive, and natural work style. Simply applying light pressure to the controller translates the user's sense of touch into dynamic 2D and 3D movements. Users can pan, zoom, and rotate with the controller in one hand, while they simultaneously create and edit with a standard mouse in the other.
"Mastercam X is a very powerful solution and with the excellent support for our range of 3D motion controllers, in particular the new SpacePilot, it brings a new level of interaction to the Mastercam X users allowing for a smooth and fluent workflow," says Jan Larsson, Director Partner Marketing 3Dconnexion.
