zSpace: Interactive 3D Anatomy Visualization and More


The zSpace workstation provides interactive 3D visualizations of human anatomy and more. Use the standalone monitor with a pair of glasses and stylus. Available in the Innovation Space on a first-come-first-served basis.

Getting Started with zSpace


Using the zSpace Stylus

  • Hold the stylus in your dominant hand just like a pen, pointing the front (the end with the buttons) towards the 3D screen.  The stylus allows you to manipulate 3D programs in a way that should feel more natural than a mouse.
  • The stylus has three different buttons:

1. Primary button (large front button): used to select objects and user interface controls

2. Secondary button (right back button): used to open context menus (varies between programs)

3. Tertiary button (left back button): used to perform other application-specific functions (also varies between programs)

  • The stylus includes two forms of feedback: vibration and an LED light.

Tips and Tricks

  • Rest your elbow on the table to prevent your arm from tiring quickly.
  • If the screen loses track of your stylus, try pointing the stylus down so the screen can “see” the tracking point on the rear of the pen.
