Use 3DConnexion over Remote Desktop

Post by rinaldialberto » Wed Mar 04, 2020 9:57 am

Hi there,

I just bought a new 3D connexion wireless mouse. I use it to work in Solidworks 2020.

If I use the 3Dmouse connected to my workstation in my office everything works (solidworks).
If I use the 3Dmouse connected to my windows laptop everything works (tutorial is smooth).

I would like to use the 3Dmouse connected to my windows laptop. On my laptop I run Remote Desktop to the workstation in my office where I run Solidworks.
The 3Dmouse is only zooming the solidworks part up in and out. Is there any way to make it work properly?

Waiting for your reply I thank you in advance,
Best Regards
Alberto Rinaldi

I'm having this exact problem in the same situation with an older SpaceNavigator USB, P/N 3DX-600028. I've tried changing the settings on the laptop with no improvement.

Using NX remotely. Having the same issue. Trying to work from home in these difficult times. Please advise a solution.

Hi guys,

This is a common problem, but it is being solved. For remote access to my 3D mouse, I use Flexihub software. Since the mouse is usb connected, there will be no problems with sharing the device.

It's a two part server/workstation software enabling for remote USB and found it here:

I am sure your Space Navigator in RDP session will work.
Good luck.

Thanks, Ill give it a shot. My 6 port mini-hub connected "normal" mouse and keyboard have no trouble, will they be affected?

What do you mean by affected? The regular mouse and keyboard connected to a USB hub should be redirected and stay fully functional as well

The SpaceNavigator, keyboard and standard mouse are all connected to the mini-hub. I can't risk affecting the functionality of the keyboard and standard mouse to gain functionality of the SpaceNavigator.

I haven't taken the time to test solution yet, maybe this afternoon.

Thanks again.
