      Hi, can someone recommend a 3d mouse? 3d connexion "enterprise" looks good
      but not cheap. Is really worth spending all that money?? Thank you.

      How many keyboard shortcuts are you using during your regular work ? A lot ? Then it may be worth it... if you mainly using the mouse then the basic model would be more suitable IMO. I use quite a few CAD programs and the space navigator it more than enough for my needs.

      You kjniw there are also axis slider oother then the main speed slider. You can drop those down if the main speed is all the way slow.

      It may take a little time with really light pressure and minor movements.
      I have mine set at 26% and feel comfortable at that setting.

      Just make sure you you hit the Close button after changing the setting, then X out of the main window
      otherwise it tends to revert back to 50 - 100% ( I forget which one). So be sure to check
      that out once in awhile that it hasn't changed on you. It's happened to me before.

      Also, make sure your mouse is always properly aligned keep the wire ie perpendicular to your desk edge. If it wanders from 12 oclock high, your brain will be scambling to make sense of what's happening
