It has 12 buttons on the thumb side that are fully programmable. You can record any number of keystrokes for any macro and program that macro into any button on the mouse.
It works with Windows 7 64 bit (and others) and so far I like it. I've programmed several osnaps, osnap toggle, ortho toggle, copybase, pasteorig, and pasteblock, and more into it. It's less than $80 and well worth it in my opinion. It's available through Amazon too.
For years I've said if I could have my old tablet with 16 button puc with a wheel, I'd love it. This does it! I'm happy.
This may have sounded like a sales pitch or add, but I'm in no way associated with Razor. It's just a discovery I thought I'd share.
I Put in the commands I use more often and so far is working Great!, just got to play with the MACRO software a bit to get it to work right.
have you checked the Multi-button mouse comming out from warmouse.com ?, looks like it will be the one closer to the 16 Button Summasketch III puck
Yes, I saw your post about the warmouse.com mouse and checked it out. It looks a bit rough now, aesthetically, but I guess it's still in the development stages. I hope it makes it. I know I'll try it out if it does. So far I like the Naga. I may pass it off to a co worker as I don't do as much production CAD as I used to. I kinda wish I still did now that I have this mouse! But he can probably make better use of it at this point. Managing and applying the Macros in Driver Version 2.01 is wonderful. Even better than the tablets were because you don't have to reload any menus. Change a macro and go back into AutoCAD and test it out! Love it.
A long time friend and co-worker tried the Naga because of growing
frustrations with driver issues with the CADPro's we are both using. And
after about a month or two, he is a converted man! We are both die-hard
tablet users from way back, but he's got me reconsidering too.
He also highly recommends the exactmat to go with it.
"growing frustrations with driver issues" that almost perfectly describes my experience with the calcomp III I used - I would have added "extreme frustration".
I have been a long time tablet user (since 1986) and was very reluctant to give it up. But when I saw the razer naga I decided this may be the thing to let me do it. I got one and love it (got another for home).
However, I still have not removed the tablet driver from my workstation (hard to let go), and still have the tablet (disconnected) in front of my monitors.
