CadMouse Pro

The CadMouse family is the industry-acclaimed purpose-built line specifically suited for design and engineering professionals. Featuring advanced ergonomics and precise calibration, it offers exceptional comfort and silent operation. It is continually improved with research-based ergonomic and technological refinements, providing ideal sensitivity, reactivity, and precise control for an enhanced CAD experience.


CadMouse Pro is the industry-acclaimed purpose-built mouse specifically suited for design and
engineering professionals. Designed for a supremely comfortable use over long working sessions, the
full-size wired mouse also demonstrates 3Dconnexion’s exceptional precision technology and silent
operation. CadMouse Pro is the ultimate mainstay of any modern CAD toolkit. Renowned for having
originated the formula for optimal performance and comfort, the CadMouse family is continually
enhanced with research-based ergonomic refinements.

Superior Ergonomics

With its dedication to ensuring comfortable and healthy usability, CadMouse Pro enjoys the innovative
ergonomics that define the CadMouse line.

CadMouse Pro is the accomplishment of a button design breakthrough for ultimate precision. The design,
comprised of distinct, specially contoured and positioned buttons with a hinge construction, increases
both the precision and responsiveness of the click, adding a more controlled mouse feedback.
With 3Dconnexion’s commitment to ensuring comfortable and healthy usability, the wired mouse enjoys
the very best ergonomic design, combining sleek aesthetics, efficiency, and silent operation. It features a
sinuous shape for a more natural hand posture and an incurvated thumb rest allowing a completely
natural feel while gripping the body of the mouse.

A dedicated middle button is created explicitly to minimize the strain of repetitive clicks and movements.
In a standard two-button mouse, a typical wheel click requires on average between 200gf and 300gf,
which causes strain from repetitive movements. 3Dconnexion’s technological breakthrough has allowed
the CadMouse line to reduce the required pressure up to four times less, thanks to reduced actuation
force. This provides a more delicate, precise click requiring less force than scroll wheel clicks on
traditional mice. Together, these features create an experience that greatly reduces the muscle and
tendon discomfort frequently encountered during long working sessions.

Highest Precision

3Dconnexion’s technological advancements give the CadMouse line the promise of ever reliable and
consistent pointer control, regardless of mouse movement. Thanks to the synergy between the mouse
feet material, comprised of polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE), with the CadMouse Pad, a perfected
equilibrium between static and dynamic friction is created, giving users the finest precision. Without this
level of perfectionism, mouse sensitivity is undermined because of movement resistance resulting in an
imprecise pointer control.

It also guarantees zero smoothing, acceleration or filtering for quality results on every project thanks to a
high-resolution optical sensor and polling rate up to 1,000Hz which create the most precise mouse for
the CAD professional’s daily working needs.

Durability to Last

CadMouse Pro is designed to handle over 50 million clicks to its buttons, as the entire line is continually
perfecting its technology with science-backed research and findings. The average CAD expert clicks
many thousands of times during a standard eight-hour workday. The line is engineered with the best
resistant materials and components for greater durability, giving users mechanical longevity they should
expect from a premium product. 3Dconnexion supports CadMouse Pro with a 3-year warranty. This,
combined with its built-to-last design, means professionals will experience supreme quality use of
CadMouse with additional peace of mind.

Refined Control and Adaptable Navigation

The CadMouse family is renowned for its exclusive Smart Mouse Wheel 2 along with its Smart Scroll
capability. It offers several advanced scrolling modes based on activity, which alter scroll behavior to
adapt to the software and when necessary, to apply more precise control.

The Tick-to-Tick function, specific to CAD applications, allows users to zoom in and out of models and
drawings with exceptional seamlessness.

For other environments, specifically in browsing or document viewing, the Smooth Scroll function offers a
reliable scroll after each first flick, which gives, for example, consistency in the number of pages a user
usually skips. With an additional flick the QuickScroll function takes effect and allows to fly over very
large documents or lengthy webpages. Finally, approaching the end of the scroll event, an additional Tick
activates Read Scroll to enter a slower pace modality.

The QuickZoom feature allows to zoom in and out of models and drawings with a level of exceptional
finesse while automatically centering the drawing to where the cursor is. By pressing the thumb’s
buttons one zooms in and out of the cursor’s position; and fine tunes the zoom level by continuing to keep
the corresponding button pressed.

Easy Access to Application Commands

Also exclusive to the CadMouse line is the Top Button, which opens an application or environmentspecific Radial Menu that is gesture-controlled and customizable, giving users quick access to their favorite commands with a swift mouse gesture.
