  • Primary button: select objects and UI controls
  • Secondary button: open context menus
  • Tertiary button: perform other application-specific functions

zSpace Tips

  • 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.

  • zSpace Account
    *All faculty should already have a zSpace account but if you don't, you can create your own.

OLP's zSpace Apps

zSpace Studio: rich model exploration and presentation tool allowing students to compare, dissect, analyze, measure, annotate and explore thousands of 3D models from zSpace Model Gallery or 3D models created by students.

 

Franklin's Lab:  learners can build or alter experiments to deepen their knowledge of Newtonian Mechanics. Students can build simulations, change gravity, stop and reverse time while gathering data and interact with the data to discover the real physics behind the movement of the objects. 

 

Newton's Park: provides a sandbox with components to build circuits: wires, resistors, LEDs, a lightbulb and motor. Activities in Franklin's Lab provide learning experiences to introduce the concepts of electricity as well as opportunities to troubleshoot broken circuits. Students will identify broken components of switches and motors to repair circuits. 

 

Euclid's Shapes: access to manipulatives for teachers to guide math learning.

 

Curie's Elements:  a periodic table for exploration with Bohr and atomic models of each element. The atom builder allows students to add protons, neutrons and electrons to build elements. 

 

zSpace Experience: a demo application to highlight some of the features of zSpace.  This app can be used as an intro/warm-up for students new to virtual reality.

 

GeoGebra:  engage in math concepts related to three-dimensional topics.  Teachers can also create new interactive math materials to use in class.

 

Human Anatomy Atlas:  a revolutionary 3D visualization and learning tool used to explore the systems of the human body. It contains more than 4,600 anatomical structures, including all major organs and systems of the male and female bodies. 

 

Leopoly: allows sculpting and manipulating 3-D objects.
