Best mouse for sketchup mac

is this a three button mouse? (like for programs like sketchup)

The orbit shortcut would be useful, but scrolling works fine on trackpad. It should also work on Magic Mouse, but nowhere near as comfortably as with Magic Trackpad. I have a Magic Trackpad, but was never able to get it to work well with SU, even with the extra software? Magic Prefs? I have a MBP Retina. I find the trackpad to be adequate for casual modeling, but I switch to a wireless mouse for serious work.

What is the best mouse for SketchUp?

I find it to be faster and more accurate. I think any mouse with a center scroll wheel is fine.

Choose based on feel in your hand and durability. Just whatever the default is, with no extra add-ons.

That can be physically less demanding than doing a click and drag. So, to zoom in and out I just use two fingers and move up and down the trackpad.

With v I can also set natural scrolling, so that SketchUp works like all other Mac programs. One thing you may not know is that control-command acts as a temporary orbit, much like pressing the mousewheel would be. Agreed that just about any 2 button mouse with a scroll wheel will work just fine using SketchUp on any computer, but my strongest recommendation is for using the wireless SpaceMouse from 3DConnexion. Click on the bold type for more info. I use a Wacom tablet with a MacBook Pro and a second monitor. SketchUp is not particularly friendly toward Wacom tablet use, but I mange to work with it.

Right hand on the pen for most mouse activity, with left hand on the track pad doing two finger scrolling, and to the keyboard for shortcuts, etc. Numeric, keyboard entry for drawing is best accomplished by first clicking in the right general direction, and then entering numerically after the fact; a funny little feature of SU without which Wacom use would be intolerable.

I need a recommendation for a mouse with 3 buttons to allow orbit and pan. I have no experience with the logitech mx anywhere 2s, but based on its stated capabilities to control multiple computers at the same time?

Who is online

Many people have success with simpler logitech mice as well as other inexpensive 3-button mice. I use a Logitech mouse, and I know several SketchUp users who do as well, and I recommend them regularly. How are you connecting the mouse to your Mac? It is connected with the supplied receiver.

My experiences with Bluetooth mouses have been rather disappointing.

  7. Michael, are your problems with the connectivity or the button configuration? I bought a mid-priced Razer Deathadder Elite mouse a few weeks ago, so far so good. I eventually hated its scroll wheel which had a very pronounced detent feel and tended to bounce and reverse a few ticks quite often.

    The wheel will scroll but Im unable to use the mouse to enable the pan and orbit function. To use those I must click on the tool bar. I have the Performance Mouse MX and I found the curser skips and otherwise has terrible movement irregularities on my Macbook Air mid regardless of the surface the mouse is on. I brought my MX Master home from work and it worked perfectly.

    Scroll wheel works great for SketchUp zooming in and out. How do you assign the wheel as a middle click? I just see assignable buttons for scroll left and right arrows and the button located below the wheel. I see nothing about holding the wheel down. Screen Shot at 9.
