I had a logitech trackball i got for christmas in 2000. Back when many/most/all? mice were still using balls on the base instead of direct lasers.
I don’t remember why but the trackball ended up sold at a garage sale and I went back to the standard mouse. But I wasn’t doing any CAD at all. So I’m really interested in trying one again.
What’s been your experience? Can a good mouse make a difference in sketching? My current mouse is a very entry level microsoft 4000 wireless. But it serves quite well. It would be cool to try a better, maybe higher accuracy mouse.
Laser vs LED? What is the difference? Is my microsoft mouse laser or LED? LED is claimed to be more accurate for cad. Any inexpensive 50 to 75 dollar recommendations?
I think I’d like the middle track ball rather than the thumb. The muscle memory from using a standard mouse would probably make the transition much more intuitive. And yes, i do realize the laser vs LED question only applies to standard moveable mice. The stationary trackball just uses a laser tracking the ball…i think.
