Maybe you want to draw whilst driving ?

I'm currently running qty (2) 21" screens, have mouse under right hand, spacepilot under left, full keyboard in middle.

Was thinking about about adding foot pedals.....

Nope. However, I am away for two weeks (or more) at a time, and being able to draw/design ideas while out and about would be nice.

We had similar setups to yours 25 years ago, both for ACAD and ProE. Along with large format plotters/printers, so I’m quite knowledgeable on what sort of setups are common.

I’m just looking for something to dabble with while I’m away for some of the up coming projects.

While I believe you, double or triple large screens makes me think that wasn't available 30 years ago. But then again, I wasn't there.

What if we use more than 1? I use Fusion 360, but I also have Bend-Tech 7x with most all of the modules.
