Reorient and navigate a model's view using a 3Dconnexion 3D mouse.
The device has a pressure-sensitive controller cap designed to flex in all directions. Push, pull, twist, or tilt the cap to pan, zoom, and rotate the current view.

3DConnexion 3D Mouse Models

When a view change occurs with the 3Dconnexion 3D mouse, the ViewCube tool is reoriented to reflect the current view. You can change the behavior of the 3Dconnexion 3D mouse from the navigation bar.
3Dconnexion options on the navigation bar

Option Description Example
Object Mode Navigates and reorients the view in the direction of the controller cap. Move the controller cap right to pan the view to the right.
Walk Mode Simulates walking through a model. The view of the model is moved in the opposite direction of the controller cap. The orientation and height of the current view is maintained.

Keep Scene Upright Specifies whether the viewpoint of the model can be turned upside-down while navigating.  
2D Zoom Direction Zooms a 2D view in response to pulling up or down on the controller cap. Move the controller cap up or down to zoom the view.
