HID axes

Post by arpruss » Mon Oct 15, 2018 1:29 pm

Are the HID axes and directions the same for all the USB HID based Spacemice? I.e., Tx Ty Tz and Rx Ry Rz?

All the ones you will find in the real world are the same.
This is not to say that they will remain that way.
The USB descriptor will change to reflect changes.

Good. My reason for the question was to make sure that if I get the axes right for one device in my SpaceMouse for TinkerCAD Chrome extension, I will have reason to think this will work for other devices.

How about axis directions? Are those the same? Here the HID descriptor won't help.
