Zallan was first introduced to 3Dconnexion 3D mice in 2006, and instantly saw the value of the productivity and design benefits. When 3D mouse support was introduced with Revit 2012, he was very eager to get a SpacePilot Pro and integrate it into his daily workflow in order to improve his ability to position, view and manipulate 3D content. As an Autodesk certified Instructor, Zallan is a frequent lecturer at universities, museums, Autodesk University, Revit Technology Conference, the AIA, as well as being a contributor to several AECO publications.
