Support for 3D Connexion devices for Mudbox is a question that has always popped up here and there at various events and, Autodesk Mudbox 2013 finally has it!  This video is a quick overview of the Space Pilot Pro in-use with Mudbox.  Using a 3D mouse with Mudbox allows you to position your model with one hand while sculpting and painting with the other hand.   In this case, I'm using the Space Pilot Pro in conjunction with a Wacom Intuos tablet.

To access the preferences for 3D Connexion devices within Mudbox, click the small arrow icon underneath the Viewcube and select '3D Connexion Properties' (see screengrabs below).

For help related to the set-up with Mudbox, click here.

NOTE: be sure to install the latest drivers for your device before using with Mudbox.

I've been using a 3D connexion device for several years now in conjunction with various other programs such as Softimage, and I'm incredibly happy that Mudbox incorporates it now. Once you've worked with it in this manner, you won't want to go back to the traditional methods of navigation. Thank you, MudBox team, for taking the time to add this device.

I'm a little skeptical about the 3D Connection as in will it aggravate or help :) I'd like to try one at a Retail store, unfortunately no store has them to try, that I'm aware of. Nice Desk Craig :)
