Space Navigator
show user profile  Cylon
I've just been on the dell website, I'm looking at getting an M90, and in the customise section you can add one of these Space Navigators.

I was wondering if anyone has used one of these , and if so, what are they like ?

We have one here and its sometimes usefull when i want to move in my viewport very precise but i think its mainly a not so expensive gadget. It also doesnt behave as perspective view but makes a camera which you control. I tried the cheapest version, 60$ or so?

Thanks for that, it does look a bit gimmiky, but for the price of the cheaper version it might be worth giving it a try.

I think max uses to many buttons on the keyboard to make using some other input device usefull. But then again, for those prices they do look tempting.
if u buy one keer us updated :)

I REALLY like my space traveler. My one main complaint is that I don't like how that when using it in an orthogonal viewport it changes the viewport to a user view, which means spline creation becomes impossible until the viewport is reset. I love it for perspective view.

Soontekk, I've had an n52 for a while (though not as cool and shiny as that one) and I've tried using it in MAX once. If you program it for just the right shortcuts, it may save some time (perhaps that D-pad assigned to the viewports, and the lone button above it to minimize/maximize the viewport), but it'll probably take some getting used to. Then again, I don't use keyboard shortcuts at all, so it was very awkward for me.
Specialty: Non-organic modelling and effects.
Setup: 3D Studio 2010 with finalRender.
Rig: No, no I can't.

i have a space pilot, and I never use it.
It's like Idiotforaliving said, you need your left hand for shortcuts all the time

Idiotforaliving, I have two space navigators. One at work, and one at home.
They are so cheap, and really usefull when modelling. Works great in google earth too.

I've got one... haven't really used enough to say its good or bad. takes some getting use to at first...
but I think it could be handy once your use to it. I have the Space Navigator SE.
