3D Connexion Spaceball or Spacepilot.
in an old shop i worked at, the mastercam office had 2 mice....a regular mouse on the right side of the keyboard, and a large trackball on the left (i think for view manipulation).
does anyone know how to set this up. would be nice to have during chaining.
You can find them on ebay for $150 or less. 3dconnexion is now selling the old model space pilots for $189...
Even the Space Navigator would be great...
Can't go wrong with anything from 3dconnexions and within a week you won't be able to live without it.
Looked like this one on the right or the one on the left in the picture.
