Rotational motion is jerky when using radians in application

Post by alex » Wed Dec 13, 2006 10:48 am

I'm using a Spaceball 4000 with an application (MSC's ADAMS program). When I set the units to degrees within the application, the spaceball works fine. But if I change units to radians, the rotations are vastly speeded up. I can open the 3DxWare panel and change the Advanced Settings to slow down the rotational speed, but the rotations are no longer smooth; it appears to jump by several degrees of rotation for each input, regardless of how I play with sensitivity, etc.

Any suggestions for how to smooth out the rotational motion?

Thanks,

P.S. - Running 3DxWare 5.3.3, Firmware = 0.24, device = Spaceball 4000.

Hi alex,

Support for 3Dconnexion devices in ADAMS is done natively in the application. In these cases, we advise our customers to report directly to the editor of the application (MCS' Technical Support is available here).
If you receive information from them on this issue, we would appreciate if you could post it here.
