Logitech G510s Gaming Keyboard for AutoCAD, Civil 3D and 3DS Max


I needed a new keyboard so I purchased a Logitech G510s Gaming Keyboard. Since I use AutoCAD, Civil 3D, and 3DS Max, I felt I could benefit from the macro keys on a gaming keyboard. I'm not sure how well it's going to work with the Autodesk software but I'll gave it a shot. Once I get all the macros keys setup, I’ll post a full review.



 
I have a few macro keys setup for AutoCAD Civil 3D.
 
 
 

 
After using the Logitech G510s gaming keyboard for a week, it has been a great help so far. The software profiles are nice and clear on the display. The media buttons and volume roller works well. Creating commands for the G-keys was easy using the Multi Key option under the Command Editor. I have not had time to test the G-keys on 3D Studio Max and other software but will try to do so in the coming days. It took a few days to get use to but the G-keys are a big help with AutoCAD/Civil 3D. The only issue I’m running into is the space bar will double space every so often when I type. Other than that, the overall keyboard and G-keys are working great for AutoCAD/Civil 3D.

 
More to come.
 
Here's an update of using the keyboard for a while. I did take the keyboard back to exchange it for another one. The double space was driving me nuts. The new keyboard is working much better. I feel the G-keys are a big time saver in AutoCAD and Civil 3D.

  2. Just a little update on the keyboard. I ended up exchange it for another one. I was having a hard time typing with the space bar and other keys double tapping or spacing. Everything is working great so far.

  5. You might think of getting the most generic, economical, cheapest keyboard out there, because they are all the same. Before jumping to that conclusion, why don't you spend the next five minutes of your life reading what exactly is an ergonomic keyboard. Read about all its additional bells and whistles before deciding to go for the generic keyboard.
