Re: 3DxWare 10.7.1 for Windows 7?

Thanks. Silly question to follow up, did extracting the 3DxWinCore64.msi also not work (and would that give basic driver functionality for the device anyway)?

Re: Button Combinations

Just as a note I believe this feature is built into the SpaceMouse Enterprise version (the T, F, R keys can be held down for a second to activate the reverse views, indicated with blue letters on the buttons).

Advice for cleaning / fixing the Increase Speed button on SpacePilot Pro?

I'll start by saying that yes I've heard that this device has been officially discontinued, and that some folks would suggest I purchase a SpaceMouse Enterprise as the recommended fix. That being said, in the "can't hurt to ask department", pressing Increase Speed often registers as Decrease Speed i...

Re: 3DxWare 10.7.1 for Windows 7?

Thanks, that's great news. To be honest, I'm not sure if I tried continuing (it was a long day, etc.). I'll give that a shot! :) p.s. As an aside, these devices are magical and it's a shame they're not more widely known outside of CAD circles since they have a much wider application. Thoughts on a "...

3DxWare 10.7.1 for Windows 7?

In the "can't hurt to ask" department, the computer I happen to have ZBrush installed on runs Windows 7, and upon launching the 10.7.1 installer for the SpaceMouse Wireless, it says that it supports Windows 8.1 and later only -- while I realize that it wouldn't be officially supported, would extract...

Re: ZBrush brush size modifier

Which leads to a future hardware feature request: Please add a Knob or Dial to devices like the SpaceMouse Pro "3" and Enterprise "3" in future revisions. All of the buttons on the Enterprise are great, and many application control surfaces also include dials (Wacom ExpressKey Remote, Celsys Tabmate...

Re: Drivers for older and new devices (SpacePilot and CADMouse)

If you making a living by using 3Dconnexion device(s), I recommend you upgrade the hardware to go along with newer versions of CAx software, it's common business practice to keep competitive on the job market. And, yep, there's quite the debate about the hardware obsolescence issue. I do make a liv...

Re: Spacepilot getting confused between Fusion 360 and Inventor

This is admittedly an annoying issue, and one must remember to click on the "Browser" bar in Fusion 360 to get the SpacePilot to kick into Fusion 360 mode. Anecdotally, there seem to be a lot of users with SpacePilots still in use today, so another +1 for an Extended Support plan (paid) that involve...

Toning down the SpaceMouse output?

I've noticed some applications are 100 - 1000x too responsive to the axis inputs on the 3Dconnexion devices, and unfortunately setting something like <OverallScale>0.001</OverallScale> in the Cfg results in no response from the device (it seems like precision and/or round-off errors result in number...

There is a discussion on Autodesk's forum about this issue, they seem to be trying to understand the request:

Re: ZBrush 2021 and legacy SpacePilot (SP1 USB) support

I like your idea of an extended maintenance plan. Thanks. Another option would be for 3Dconnexion to Open Source their legacy drivers so that the community could bear the development cost of supporting discontinued devices. If the source code is out there, people might make it work. Remember, most ...

Update -- I have the SpacePilot working with ZBrush 20201.5.1. 1. Install the 10.4.10 drivers listed under Space Pilot Pro in the Driver Archive. This was the last "universal" driver that supported a wide array of devices devices such as SpaceMouse Enterprise, SpaceMouse Pro, SpaceMouse Pro Wireless...

Re: ZBrush 2021.5 and 3Dconnexion SpacePilot 01

Just purchased a SpaceMouse for my ZBrush. When will the new driver be available on the driver download page? Right now only the 10.7.0 is available for Windows. :| Very soon. Very, very soon. Version 10.7.1 of 3DxWare 10 for Windows was published earlier today (Dec 15). The software is available f...

ZBrush 2021 and legacy SpacePilot (SP1 USB) support

Since ZBrush, with it's estimated installed user base of 150,000+ users, had made all of their customers potential 3Dconnexion customers with their latest release, I've been looking into the SpacePilot and the driver situation, and think I have some ideas. Like folks who own a reliable car that's st...
