What is the current 3DXWare Version and Firmware verison ?

Post by jclements » Thu Dec 21, 2006 11:41 pm

The web download lists 3.0.9 for Win XP.

My 3DConnexion help menu indicates a higher Firmware version of 3.11.

Can someone please validate the correct info for SpaceTraveler, Win XP?


Thanks, John

Hi jclements

This is an opportunity to clarify the different terms.

The firmware is built in into the hardware of a device (in a ROM , or a similar chip).

The 3DxSoftware contains not only a generic driver (3DxWare), but also different plug-ins for specific applications. The current 3DxSoftware version is v3-0-9, the previous one was the v3-0-7 and so on.

3DxWare is the real generic driver. The recent version is v6-0-16.

The different plug-ins have also different version numbers. For example the current plug-in for NX 4, called 3DxNX has the version 2.1.6.

For the SpaceTraveler you should have the driver 3DxSoftware v3-0.9 and the 3DxWare v6-0-16, when you wish to have the most recent Software.
