Hello RayZero,

I apologize for the trouble you encounter. You should download the latest driver for your 3D mouse from our driver download site. The latest version for Mac OS X is 3DxWareMac 10.2.1. I strongly recommend that you uninstall the old version. There is an uninstaller in the driver package.

I have not been able to get the 10.2.1 driver does not work with MAC OSX 10.7.5 and Sketchup 2014.

Maybe there's something glitchy and buggy about the combination of 3DxWareMac 10.2.1 and Sketchup 2014 and OSX 10.7.5 ??? (and, no, I can not update the OS on my Mac, 10.7.5 is the best that this old computer will run…)

The Space Navigator does work for GoogleEarth, so maybe it's just something about Sketchup 2014 ???

Can anybody out there help me?

The generic reply from 3DConnexion was not helpful.

It looks like I bought a fancy paperweight with a glowing blue light…!

Hello RayZero,

yes, sorry. I oversaw that you are using an older version of Mac OS X. When we added support for Sketchup 2014 we had already dropped support for Mac OS 10.7. There is no driver available that supports both versions that you are using. :(

Which versions of OS X are supported with SketchUp 2014?
