Creeping rotation

I have had my Space Pilot for a few weeks, having used 3DConnexion controllers back to the serial Spaceball 4000 series and I've never seen this before. After a while, my model (in SolidWorks) starts slowly rotating anticlockwise around the Y axis when I'm not touching the controller. The speed is d...

I found another way around it. In the button mapping panel there is a group called 3D control Views. There are two Isometric choices in there, and they do work. However, there is no Top, Left, Right or Front - these are in the Others category and when I tried to put the L button back to Left view us...

But the 3D Connexion panel has an Isometric command in it.
Is that command supposed to produce an isometric view in the main window?

I'm confused as to why a standard function needs to be created as a custom macro

I don't understand what you mean when you say 'create custom function macro to the same keyboard key you assigned in Solidworks' I'm trying to set the L button on the Space Pilot to give the Isometric View and not the Left View. I don't know what the keyboard key in Solidworks is for that, I use the...

Hi Fred, I'm using the SW control panel. I'm trying to change the L button in the T, L, R, F group to be Isometric, not Left. I go to Others / Isometric and drag that to the L button in the mapping control panel. I close the panel, so it auto saves. I press T, I get a Top View I press R, I get a Rig...

Button configuration questions

I've been using 3D connexion controllers a long time but for the last few years I used the Navigator and only had one button setup. Now I have a Pilot and there's a lot more buttons..! But I'm having some issues in SolidWorks: I tried to change one of the view buttons (Left) to Isometric. It doesn't...

It seems that once Firefox was closed, it went back to Any Application. This is still very odd because I hadn't done anything with Virtual Earth until the Space Pilot reminded me of the name and even when I did, it refuses to open in Firefox and brings up Internet Explorer anyway, so it shouldn't ev...

Before you replied, I tried removing the 3D Connexion software (via control panel) and then re-downloading and re-installing. The screen still says Virtual Earth, so I guess I'll try your approach.
I removed Virtual Earth while I was in control panel too...

Screen now shows 'Virtual Earth'

I just got a Space Pilot and when I was not in SolidWorks, the screen used to say 'Any Application' across the top. Today it says 'Virtual Earth'. I hadn't used virtual earth for years and certainly not on this computer or with this Space Pilot. I even went to Bing to download it since it must have ...

Unlikely

This has been an issue for the 10 years I've used SolidWorks and 3D connexion controllers, so I doubt anyone is going to fix it.
I think the problem is the way SolidWorks calculates the center of rotation in perspective mode, but I'm not a programmer, so I could be wrong.
