3DConnexion Drivers for MAC OS Catalina?

Post by marcel_911 » Sun Jul 28, 2019 1:30 pm

Any news on these?

I just tried my SpaceNavigator for the first time in about 18 months. It is not recognised on Catalina.

The Mac can see it, as it moves the mouse pointer, but in the 3DConnexions settings, my device is ghosted.

I took it to work to try on Mojave and it works fine, so I know the hardware is working.

I'm just getting back into Fusion 360 and it's a pain without my SpaceNavigator.

Hi marcel_911,

macOS Catalina isn't yet released. We don't support beta software.

OK, Thanks.

A little more info would be helpful.

Will the drivers be released on the day Catalina is released? Beta versions and RC versions are available for developers to work on before release.

Unfortunately we cannot make any prediction on release dates, but our developers are looking into this.

The truth is that you don’t fully support official macOS releases neither.
It's 1 year that we are reporting the universal receiver bug and there's no fix yet.

Ok, so Catalina is now out and no longer beta. The driver doesn't recognise that the mouse is plugged in and it acts only to drive the cursor around. Is there any update about progress on a driver that works with Catalina? Thank you

Is there any update, as the final release of Catalina is here and the driver doesn't recognise the hardware as described above?

On upgrading to the official Catalina yesterday, my 3D connexion spacemouse no longer works in the latest sketchup version. SKP was cruising along nicely in Mohave. Are there any timelines for drivers for Catalina?

Hi all,

we are currently testing our next release of 3DxWareMac. Depending on the results of the testing phase we will publish this version, which will include official support for maxOS 10.15 (Catalina).

Hi UtaSH,

how is it going? I would like to use my spacenavigator with Catalina as soon as possible. Catalina is available since 10/07/2019, that's 2 weeks now. Can you give us a little preview on the timesheet?

Thank you and regards, Erik.

I just installed Catalina and my Space Navigator works just fine. :D
I guess Apple corrected something.
