Is it necessary to use a mouse when making 3D models and what mouse do you use?

>> No.554047

I was going to try get you to beleave you needed a £500 mouse but frankly It's too much effort. Just by a cheep as Dell mouse, i have thumb buttons on my mouse that I never use when modelling. Also don't beleave the memes about 3D mouses

Pretty much any mouse will work, but some are better than others, depending on what you're doing. I used a shitty 10 Euro no-name "gaming" mouse with a laser sensor for the longest time, and it certainly got the job done.

When that one broke I decided to do some research and get one that was actually "good" (i.e. decent sensor, weight and shape), primarily for gaming. I ended up with a Zowie EC2-A and I was surprised how much it helped me even outside gaming. Repetitive shit like cutting edges or welding vertices definitely became way easier.

Every year, I buy the same mouse and keyboard that the top League of Legends LCS tournament winner uses so that I get the highest amount of APM and thus the highest quality models

You can also imitate the CS:GO champs as well

For sculpting sure but anything else would be made a hassle, especially with all of the keyboard shortcuts in maya.

>> No.554355

A Wacom tablet can come in handy here and there. Concept sketching, sculpting, weight painting, grease pencil to name a few. Buy one if you feel like it.


3d mouse OTOH is fairly pointless at least in Maya where clicking through menus is integral to the UI.

Nah, I use wacom

>> No.555649

>>554309
srsly... I use wacom in every grahpic app, you just map on pen buttons, middle click and right click,
I really don't get why it's a hassle?
I'll just assume you have not used stylus enough, or you are not comfortable with it

I'm used to using mouse whenever I'm not drawing.
I guess if you had hotkeys set up on a cintiq it would work but I've only ever done that for photoshop.
