3D Connection Space Mouse

Recommended Posts

hi all,

can the 3D Connection Space Mouse work with CA X7?

This is a valid question - I'm surprised that no one at Chief Architect has answered or commented.  Using the space mouse in sketchup is one of the most valuable tools that I use, not being able to use it in chief is a huge downside to the program (especially during a client 3d presentation)

 

Comments from the people at 3dConnexion say that it is a fairly simple programming change to the software

 

Looking forward to some discussion here

I asked CA a while back. They said no.

 

"looking into it" sounds promising.

It'll definitely get my vote.  I use a spacenavigator with Sketchup, it makes a huge difference to navigating around a 3D model.  I can't believe that it'll be too difficult to integrate it.  3Dconnection have an SDK readily available and if CA want to play in the same field as Autosketch and Auto-CAD, among many others, then I'm sure 3Dconnexion would be delighted to have them on board.

Since there hasn't been a major release since this post started...I'm guessing nothing has changed.
