why can't they just use the middle mouse button + shift/alt/ctrl etc to orbit the damn camera?
>>662689Because I'm not a poorfag or a Zoomer
>>662689Have you ever actually used one?
I got one as a prize at a 3d competition. I've barely used it but it's kind of neat to play with sometimes.
>>662689Nobody actually uses this shit.
Bretty neatActually used one when I was a modeller.>why cant just mousewhy not just gently yank and twist the knob in one stroke to issue BOTH translate and rotate movement instead of wasting mouse clicks?when you move your head around IRL do you orbit first, pan, and then track to whatever you want to look at or just move there directly?and if you gather stats on every input given to the PC majority of them is viewport control so this device saves you lots of clicks.But u better git good with them marking menu tho, unless you have 3 hands.
>>662747>Wasting mouse clicksThey aren't finite you know
>>662750They will give you the nasty lil carpal tunnels and RSIs though.
>>662750Actually a mouse is only rated for so many clicks before the switch dies.
>>662754For normies.I have the same mouse since 2003 for home and work, every switch "died" several times over the years and just got easily "revived" by cleaning the slightly corroded contacts inside them. Also has the 5th cable on it.When you found the perfect mouse, you keep it forever.
>>662689I work with stylus, i don't touch mouse like at all, but I'm sure this is really good tho..
>>662747>why not just gently yank and twist the knobsure anon, that's what you just love to do
btw, get the cheaper non meme version
>>662775This is even worse. Nobody fucking uses this shit.
>>662689which is the meme behind 3d mice?
>>662745I do, a lot.t. industrial designer
>>662799just to move the viewport or anything else?
>>662750Mouse clicks take time, and time is finite.
>>662819Yes, my easily-impressed customers love it when I orbit around their products.
>>663056I'm certain this is no jest
Why do I get the feeling that this thread was made because some youtuber made a video about that ancient spaceorb controller from the same patent
>>663056>>663058Not him, but there's something mesmerizing about the way orbiting looks when using a 3D mouse.
>>663056tfw no need to animate for presentation.
It's a luxury item. That is actually helpful.
>>663061It's often this way but I made the thread because I remembered them and saw to my surprise that they still get sold and seem to go well
I was given one of these at work, and I thought it was pretty difficult to learn. I'm sure if I tried for longer, it would eventually save some time, but it didn't even work with most of my software out of the box.My boss does a lot of CAD stuff, and he loves it, so maybe more useful for that industry.
