3Dconnexion SpaceNavigator Supports New Photoshop CS3

3Dconnexion SpaceNavigator

Logitech company 3Dconnexion has retooled its SpaceNavigator pointing device to support the new Standard and Extended editions of Adobe Photoshop CS3.

The SpaceNavigator device enables users working with 3D objects in Adobe Photoshop CS3 Extended to simultaneously pan, zoom and rotate camera views and 3D objects.

Paired with Photoshop CS3 Extended, the SpaceNavigator device allows digital content creators, architects, product designers, and those creating 3D tools for training and simulation to significantly enhance their 3D design experience and workflow, according to 3Dconnexion.

The SpaceNavigator device is used in addition to the mouse and is held in the other hand. Users apply very slight movements to the device’s controller cap to simultaneously pan, zoom and rotate 3D objects. The SpaceNavigator device complements the preview of 3D models in Adobe Photoshop CS3 Extended and is a useful tool for 3D artists creating detailed texture maps.
