Anyone utilizing 3D modeling programs knows that 3D mice are fantastic additions to their workflow. From SketchUp, to ZBrush, to so many more, this tool adds efficiency, comfort, and fluidity for 3D modeling professionals and hobbyists alike.
They allow modelers to fluidly manipulate the “camera” along 6 axes (pulling, pushing, twisting, and even tilting pucks connected to the top of a 3D mouse.)
A 3D mouse remains stationary when in use, and doesn’t function by moving around a mouse pad like a typical desktop mouse.
While the basic functions of 3D mouse are homogenous, there’s a vast selection of added features to choose from.
3Dconnection is a great example, as it’s quite popular amongst users because it creates 3D interface devices for CAD. It also has exceptional visualization software that puts the user experience at the forefront, providing reliability, functionality, and control.
If you are a happy owner of such a device or planning to purchase one, sooner or later you will come across a situation when you need to access a 3D mouse over remote desktop. The catch here is that remote protocols do not support USB devices. What do you do then? How do you access 3D mouse in RDP or is there a way to share 3D mouse in this environment? There is.
The user-friendly interface of this 3D mouse redirector is a pleasant bonus that makes working with USB Network Gate an enjoyable experience, especially when sharing other devices like gaming controllers. Here you can find a handy article on how to connect gaming controller over RDP.
And one more thing if you work in the multi-user environment and would like to isolate your 3D mouse from other remote desktop sessions? For that, USB Network Gate offers the advanced feature of USB device isolation that will allow you to make the shared 3D mouse only available to you.
