Church organ pedals for CAD
Right now, in an intense phase of production I wonder, since many years BTW, why we don’t use foot pedals like with the old church organ? Imagine you step Left to get ”Element select” and R to get “Undo (Ctrl+Z)”. These, or maybe others, are some of the most used commands, for me at least. Actually, you can expand with several pedals like in the church; impressive to see when they do a JS Bach fugue. In CAD though, over and over again you have to go up and to the tool bar… The productivity upgrade with church organ pedals should be awesome.
Has anyone already invented this gadget? If so, please….
Here you go.
Rubber monkey has the extra programmable keyboard but too expensive .. for just a 3 button programable usb custom keyboard very inexpensive and can be used with your non mouse hand forget the feet... as an addon to your normal keypad.. but I dont know if it will work with microstation
but for $17 AUS might be worth it... the rubber monkeys one used to come with software to make it work in ustn and to print stickers to cover the keys with so you can use icons it had 50+ buttons.. I can't find the old post.... below is the cheap amazon programable 3 button usb version
