Space Navigator coating peeling

I've had a SpaceNavigator for a few months now and have recently noticed that the rubber textured coating is peeling off. I only use it about twice a week with my laptop, and it sits on a counter the rest of the time. It's not stored in direct sunlight. I have two SpacePilots that have never shown a...

I figured it out. Turns out VB6 doesn't like it when you name your objects with an existing property name. So I had to change the declarations from: Private WithEvents Device As TDxInput.Device Private WithEvents Sensor As TDxInput.Sensor Private WithEvents Keyboard As TDxInput.Keyboard to: Private ...

Also, I know the Connect method is working (I think) because Device.IsConnected reports True.

VB6 and SpacePilot

I want to modify a VB6 application to accept input from 3DConnexion devices. However, since there are no examples showing how to interface with the TDx dll using VB6, I created a test project first. So far, the project compiles fine, but is not responding to the SensorInput event. Here are the relev...

The specific command that I see this on is the SolidWorks function "Vertical Ordinate Dimension". Depending on the specific sequence of letters, this doesn't happen with just any long label. It has to be a label that, after truncating to fit the display, has the last letter placed on the far right e...

Display bug

I've located a display bug with the SpacePilot. If any of the 6 custom buttons are assigned a function with a long name that uses the very right edge of the function display box, the display fails to clear the last column of pixels. For example, when I assign "Vertical Ordinate Dimension" the displa...

Thanks for the registry key, Jim. I knew there had to be a missing link I wasn't aware of.

Thanks, but I'm pretty sure I did exactly that the first time I tried to copy over my work settings to my laptop. I guess I'll try it again.

Backup and Restore 3DConnexion Profiles

What is the best method for backing up profiles and later restoring them to either the same machine or a different PC? I've tried copying and pasting the "%userprofile%\Application Data\3Dconnexion\3DxWare\profiles" directory, but it doesn't seem to take on a new machine. It ignores the newly pasted...

Yes, I'm using the latest driver (according to the update wizard). And yes, I'm plugged directly into my pc's usb port.

SpacePilot display goes blank

Occasionally (1 or 2 times a week), my SpacePilot's LCD display goes completely blank. It seems to work just fine, except there is nothing on the display. No custom application menu, no 3DConnexion logo. At this point the only thing that brings the display back is disconnecting and then reconnecting...

SpacePilot

RBC9, looks like you have a great program here. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to test it out because I have a SpacePilot. Has there been any more work done towards making your driver compatible? I've tried the Fadetoblack version, but that doesn't work. Thanks.

Check out your config.pro and make sure you don't have the following option:

spin_rate_zoom_sensitive yes

This setting lowers the spin setting the more you zoom in. I usually find it useful, but if you zoom in to very small features it will slow down the spin rate considerably.

In the 3Dconnexion Control Panel (the generic one, not any program specific dialog boxes) go to the Advanced Settings tab. There you'll find sliders to control the sensitivity and direction of each axis.

Detailed function list for Pro Engineer plug-in

Is there any documentation listing all the functions available in the Pro Engineer plug-in? There look to be several hundred functions, and they all have very short names with no descriptions. Sometimes I see 4 or 5 functions listed next to each other, all with the same name. It's also difficult to ...
