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.


  1. That gaming keyboard looks amazing. I love the keyboard with colors.

  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.

  3. A very good and informative article indeed. It helps me a lot to enhance my knowledge on gaming keyboard and the keyboard you have shared in picture is looking amazing.
