I think it is not more difficult to set up than any 3rd party mouse.

You have 3 buttons + scroll wheel + 2 side buttons like a basic MS Intelli Explorer.

(I don't use that top button that is so hard to reach)

And you can set button assignments per App, like MS intelli mouse (could in the past on Mac).

 

That is used mainly for the 2 side buttons only.

 

It is just that the extra middle mouse button works a bit easier and more reliably than trying

to press a scroll wheel for MMB.

It's a great size, 7 customizable buttons,  very smooth wheel button, with the optional mouse pad it's like skating on ice; very fluid.  Wireless.

I have the wired CadMouse and really like it

 

 

Same here.

Everthing without a wire is no proper mouse :)

Maybe a Mole.

good for large hands

 

Oh,

seems I have giant Hands.

I think it is still a tad too small.

Bluetooth wireless or USB dongle wireless?

It's equipped for both of those methods and comes with a USB cable for charging.

@MarkvlWhat Operating system are you using this mouse with?

How has your experience with the mouse been during the last couple of months?

@NeilBYou'll see my system in my signature below.  Love it.  It's precise, works well over two screens.  I've had no trouble with it.

I haven't played with the custom buttons yet.

 

Looking to get one?

Oops, sorry about that... Having sigs switched off for a while now I forgot about them! I'd better switch those back on.

 

I am thinking about getting one, yes, and I have had a client considering it too. I got to demo one at the Design Summit in Baltimore and it felt quite good.

That is where we had a first glance at them (Baltimore Summit) and decided we needed these.  So much better than the standard mice our workstations came with.

Make sure you get the pad too.

For anyone who has got one of these mice, and especially you @Markvl, how have you found the thumb Quick Zoom buttons work in Vectorworks? Do they work out of the box with Vectorworks or did you have to re-map those buttons to Vectorworks-specific zooming functions (i.e. fit to object)?

On my larger USB cable version I have set Thumb Buttons to

"X" = Select/Drag Tool

and

"Command+6" = Fit View

by adding keystrokes and it works. Could be that I added a

key combination to Fit View in VW, in case there wasn't.

I use the 2 side buttons for layer-up and layer-down

The wheel button as command-O to bring up the layer/class/etc.. properites window

the Top button I have set to various Layer / Class views (Active Only, Gray Others, etc ..)

 

my middle mouse is still set to pan -- think I'll change to something else :)
