Christian should be able to scare up the src code for xcube (it may not be meant for outside consumption though). The Windows 3DxWare SDK contains src for several demos that have been scrubbed a bit better. Ah, good hint. I had a look at the Windows SDK in the past, but somehow I failed to try to l...

But please, could someone from 3dconnexion check whether it would be possible to release the source code of "xcube"? It's a very simple example after all, what reason could there be not to release its code?

Hi Christian, thanks for your reply. yes indeed those are independent values for translation (x/y/z) and rotation(x/y/z) not a composite rotation/translation value. OK, but what is the proper order when applying the three rotations? This will probably only matter when you twist the knob in multiple ...

I should add that I am still looking for documentation on "the proper way" to do it. Also, I wonder what to do with the MagellanPeriod value? IIUC, one could simply multiply the sensor values with the period? Or, probably one would need to multiply the previous sensor values with the period value, i...

I have had a look at the "helix" demo program by Simon, and its space pilot control seemed rather intuitive. Looking at the code I found that it indeed interprets the rx/ry/rz values as three separate rotations; the code looks roughly like this: 1 Rotate `camera_pos` around `camera_up` by `ry` 2 lef...

Oh, thanks, it's not the math however which is my problem; in fact I have successfully written some 3D visualization software and you can find a C++ quaternion class of mine here: http://kogs-www.informatik.uni-hamburg.de/~meine/bvp/quaternion.hxx The problem is that I do not know how to interpret t...

Source code of xcube?

Hi, I have no problems with receiving the 6DOF input events in my app, but I am not sure I'm doing the rotation correctly. The xcube example works fine and looks very simple, any chance that we get to see the source for this? I know about the difference between 3 single-axis rotations and a single 3...

Any news on this?

I am sure there are a lot of Linux/Unix users who'd like to use the LC display, too!

If the driver found the device then the usbfs is mounted on your machine. You can check this with the command "mount". Absolutely not. I am 100% sure that usbfs is not mounted (and I know a dozen ways to check that), and as you can see from the link I posted, it is absolutely impossible with the 2....

Hi again, by linking libXm.so.4 to libXm.so.3 ( urgh! ) I got the driver running, and using -d usb it found my Space Pilot, even though there is no usbfs in sight! So maybe all the docs (installation instructions etc.) are just out of date? Anyhow, I got xcube running and it does not look bad so far...

SuSE 10.2 support / libusb instead of usbfs?

Hi! I have just received my brand-new Space Pilot, but if I understand correctly, I cannot use it because all computers in our cluster are equipped with SuSE 10.2 and compiling my own kernel is not really an option (all computers are supposed to have identical software setups).
