Why i don't need my 3dconnexion anymore?
1. Rotating the view with the 3dconnexion is slower than rotating with the mouse.
2. The center point is not changeable while using another tool. Only with placed new points is it possible.
3. The Hotkey Alt+rigt mouse button is a very good thing, give the Dynamic Rotate tool in hand while another tool in hand. And with alt+right mouse and ctrl and left mouse at snap point is it possible to change the rotating center point. This works so good that the 3dconnexion is completely useless.

And another very nice hotkey is shift+right mouse for moving with hand.

I have now the 3dconnexion and driver software removed and the computer is now faster. Jumping between windows go faster. And i guess the bug that sometimes no hotkeys in shark works have to do with the 3dconnexion. Now this fail investition is for sale. i sell it on ebay. This 3d mouses are for nothing good. Just taking time, rotating need more time and it rotate not so precise like with the mouse.

Hi MPSchmied,

I agree with you 100%.
My 3DConnexion device is sleeping in a drawer...

Hi,
i think, so punch software is not optimized for sofisticated equipment, so i use simply 3 buton mouse but with 'tight jump' wheel A4Tech Opto Ecco 6120 Evolution, 5$... Enjoy.
