3D Connexion Not Working

Recommended Posts

Trying to set up my 3D Connexion wireless space mouse on my MBP using VW2020. The pan tools are fine, right, left, up down, zoom in/out are working ok. Its the spin & tilt when in a 3d perspective view that just don't work at all ?? Any ideas 🤔

I have the same device set up to work fantastic in Rhino 3d

Screenshot attached, its the Green icons which are just not working, tia

I have similar issue with the Spacemouse, after much trial and error I realise that the Spacemouse for vectorworks is poorly mapped and often mirrored.

 

I think spin isnt a function supported in Vectorworks.

here is what I got to working so far.

 

hope this helps

@PeterYip thanks for chipping in, think my settings are pretty much the same, i just can't get the tilt or spin to work, kind of defeats the object of having a space mouse, works beautiful in Rhino, its a dream to use, but in Vectorworks it sucks yet they have it as supported software 🙄🤔

You are certainly able to spin the model, that function is actually mapped as roll in 3D connexion rather than ‘spin’
 

Sadly you are not able to tilt them sideways, I don’t think you can actually do that anyway.

@milezee try change the mapping (the right hand side column) to 3D Mouse Roll Left / Right

 

the tilt function should work. 
 

if all fail, maybe try raise a support ticket with 3Dconnexion.

@PeterYip I think i may have just solved the tilt & spin issue, in the configure window I just had the default Vectorworks set, I added VW 2020 from applications, and it now seems to work, still not as slick as in Rhino, but it works, cheers for the assistance 👍
