Best mouse for AutoCad

Best mouse for AutoCad

It's budget planning time and I'm looking to see what mouse is best to use for AutoCad. Any other items to include for CAD drawing?

RE: Best mouse for AutoCad

Hi GMgerry,

In my experience, usually any wheel style mouse is fine for AutoCAD.  I'm not sure any of the 3D input devices are really warranted for AutoCAD - but I've never used one so I'm not sure how much benefit you'd get with one.


Any other items to include for CAD drawing?

Monitors always top my list - the bigger and flatter the better.

Top notch graphics cards are always helpful when driving those large monitors.

Raw horsepower and loads of memory are never a bad thing either.

Just my 2 cents.
