AAARRRGGHHHH! Again and again YOUR CUSTOMERS ask for a generic driver and again and again you point them to other software houses to do YOUR JOB. Can't you see that we don't just want to use the controller in specific applications? So you produce an API, great for high end apps like CAD etc. I am n...

I can imagine most 3D applications would eventually come around and create support for their products, but for music apps this isn't even on the radar. You want to know how fast a SpaceMouse would get picked up by bustling DJ & electronic music scene? Answer, really fast, if it was as easy as mappi...

People have been clamoring for a generic HID driver for the 3dconnexion devices for quite some time and unfortunately all we get is similar to the above. It might be time to try appealing to the parent company, Logitech? Actually, all our (recent) devices are HID devices, so whoever relies on HID A...

Can anyone confirm whether or not the current version of Blender v.2.45 will work with my SpacePilot? I have tried to follow the instructions for getting it to run, but the file structure for the Blender plugin folder is a bit different than what is shown in the 3DConnexion instructions, which make...

thanks for the nice words, Captain Buff. We do try our best to bring the Mac support up to speed. About "losing sight of your object": it's probably because your speed settings are too high. Your SN is fully configurable at a per-app level using our pref pane (System Preferences -> 3Dconnexion). Sel...

Hi Captain, let me first clarify the terminology: - Ndof/NDOF means "N Degrees of Freedom", which explains what our device can do. In the current state of things, we control 5 degrees of freedom in Blender with the SN (move L/R, F/B, U/D, spin and tilt (no roll)). The SN is able to control 6 DOF. - ...

Re: PE Edition

Yes it is the PE edition - I did manage to remove the software and drivers by creating another admin user and performing the uninstall that way. Startup times have dramatically reduced to about 2-3 mins (which is still slow !) A 2 minute boot time doesn't seem all that strange on older machines dep...

Stop dreaming. This product is born dead by lack of support of any commercial application. Alright, this is simply not true.

Yes, I tried that and Sketchup now works - sort off. It works very smoothly for about 30 seconds then gets 'jumpy' or jerky for the rest of the session. at the rate of about two thirds of a second. This is in any movement. smooth then stop smooth stop and so on. This jumpy behavior will last indefi...

Is the Blender plugin still being actively developed ? I noticed that the 'ndof' branch hasn't had any updates for 3 months. Will this ever be improved and/or included into the main branch ? I can't speak for the rest of the community, but yes, 3Dconnexion certainly intends to continue improving bl...

Did you already report this specific problem to Google? I intended to, but never got to it, so no. So far I haven't even found a place to report it , but admittedly I haven't looked very hard. If it is no trouble for you, please report it, otherwise I'll try again. actually, since I can't reproduce...
