The Spaceball 3D Controller

by 3Dconnexion
Spaceball 4000
New and improved ``flexible" 3D Controller and software bring a whole new level of 3D interactive motion control to your application.

The new Spaceball FLX enables you to pan, zoom and rotate 3D models with simultaneous 6D (six degrees-of-freedom) control as you build, modify and inspect designs -- within your application!

With the Spaceball FLX PowerSensor technology, you can easily move or rotate your 3D by gently pushing, pulling or twisting the PowerSensor ball.  The model then moves in the direction of the force or twist applied. The Spaceball 3D Motion controller also provides smooth and dynamic model manipulation in that the greater the pressure applied to the ball, the faster the model moves or rotates. Its ergonomically designed base lets you rest your hands in a very natural, relaxed position, reducing hand and arm stress and fatigue.


  • Easy installation. For most hardware platforms, the new Spaceball does
    not require an external power supply. Simply plug the Spaceball Serial
    Interface Cable directly into the serial port of your system.
  • True 3D interface.  The Spaceball is not meant to replace the mouse.
    Continue to use the mouse for picking, pointing and menu selection in the
    hand you normally use while using the Spaceball 3003 in your other hand for
    3D control. Using both devices simultaneously in this manner can
    significantly increase your productivity.

The new SpaceWare software included in both models lets you:

  • Create custom button functions and assign them to application keyboard
    and LPFK functions. Basic functions include:
            Translation On/Off
            Rotation On/Off
            Dominant Axis On/Off
            Model Space Filter On/Off
            Decrease Sensitivity
            Increase Sensitivity
            Rezero Spaceball
            Reset View
  • Adjust individual axis sensitivity settings for translations and rotations
  • Define multiple 8-button function palettes for specific tasks
  • Configure multiple user settings


  • SpaceWare Application Drivers included (supplied on CD-ROM)
  • Serial Cable and Power Adapter included
  • Connects to RS-232 Serial Port
  • Supports SGI (w/IRIX 3.3.2 or later) SUN, DEC, IBM, HP, Netpower and Windows NT
  • 3 year warranty
