SpaceMouse Plus USB not working on iMac

Post by MarshW » Wed Aug 16, 2017 5:42 pm

I have a SpaceMouse Plus USB with the latest 3dconnexion drivers loaded. I'm on MacOSX El Capitan using Fusion 360. The only thing the SpaceMouse does is move my Mac Mouse cursor around and zoom in and out on my model. The way it zooms is CW twist zooms out, CCW twist zooms in. Lifting the controller cap, sliding it in any direction or pressing down on it does nothing to the model, but those actions move my mouse cursor.
Any assistance getting this thing to work would be greatly appreciated.

I have already uninstalled and re-installed the driver software. The unit is working in exactly the same manner as when I had no driver installed at all.

3dConnexion stopped officially supporting the USB SpacemousPlus back in 2009
I am surprised that you can get it to do much at all. At least that means there is hope.

Does the 3dconnexion driver preferences even recognize it as a SpacemousePlus?

It does, but where it shows the firmware version, it shows nothing.
