Digital modeling technology leader relies on 3Dconnexion 3D mice to design music creation products for musicians around the world

When it comes to developing world-class gear for the studio and stage, Calabasas, Calif.-based Line 6 has today’s musicians covered, offering a vast array of award winning music creation products from guitars and amplifiers, to effects, effects processors and recording interfaces. Renowned for its studio- and stage-standard gear, Line 6 invented digital guitar amp modeling technology in 1996, and currently is the number one developer of guitar amps used worldwide by pros and hobbyists alike.

Similar to the blood, sweat and tears that music legends put into crafting and promoting their top albums, an incredible amount of innovation and design also goes into making the tools that leading musicians rely on. Line 6’s lead industrial designer, Dale Wagler, and the rest of the engineering team spend an average of five to six hours a day working in SolidWorks, each using a 3Dconnexion 3D mouse to design and test their products.

“When you’re working in a complex application hours on end each day, working as efficiently as possible has a tremendous impact on the design process,” says Wagler, further noting that his 3Dconnexion 3D mouse just makes everything quicker. “I move around models in assemblies so much, that not having to stop what I’m doing and click and drag, and scroll the wheel, is the biggest benefit!”
