This is another one of those “did it because I can” projects. It’s a USB dial that uses a Teensy 2.0 Arduino unit at it’s core and allows me to emulate my mouse. I use TinkerCAD avidly to design my 3D printed models. Even though I have a mouse I wanted the dial to quickly rotate and zoom in/out on my designs. With both the dial and mouse co-existing, it allows for faster manipulation of the workspace. The Dial handles workspace manipulation while the mouse handles the parts. It makes for an interesting dynamic with both units operating at the same time.”
