    Best Practice input devices? Mouse - 3D Mouse - Other?

    Gary Garrison

      If a person wanted to build a current Workstation for Solidworks what is the best/ideal input devices?  I know this will vary based on your tasks, but for general 3d modelling?

      From what I see on the forum there isn't a tremendous amount of discussion on this.  The general consensus I see is as follows:

       

      3d Mouse

      3D Space Mouse (Pro or Enterprise)

      Anyone have personal experience with the Enterprise VS the Pro?

       

      Regular Mouse

      Logitech MX Series

       

      These seem to be the "all stars" that I have seen the most personal recommendations for on this forum.  So here are my questions:

       

      Am I missing something new?

      Am I missing something easier?

      Do the touch monitors play well with SW yet?  Is that even supported?
