No more plug-ins! Autodesk announces native 3D mouse support for Revit

April 05, 2011

Autodesk has added native 3D mouse support for the Autodesk Revit Architecture 2012, Autodesk Revit Structure 2012, and Autodesk MEP 2012 software applications. Previously users had to download and install plug-ins for their particular 3D mouse.  Carmel, Calif.-based 3D Mouse manufacturer 3DConnexion has also added native support for Autodesk Navisworks 2012 software applications.

“We are delighted to introduce 3Dconnexion 3D mouse support in the latest Revit software release, as it has been one of the top requests from customers,” said Nicolas Mangon, building business line director, Autodesk. “We’ve been working closely with 3Dconnexion to ensure the quality of support is what both Revit and 3D mouse users expect, enabling architects to work more freely and efficiently.”

3D mouse support is just one of many long-clamored-for changes made possible by the redesigned Revit application program interface, which was redesigned for Revit 2011 and enhanced in the Revit 2012 products.

Revit 2012 now supports two-handed 3D Mouse navigation.
