Hi Adam, I'm glad that our devices are making your computer a little more accessible. Future changes we are planning may help some more. You can save a configuration specifically for applications like notepad by saving a configuration while that application is running. Specifically, make your change...

Hi Scott, It sounds like your saved user profiles are messed up. While running Inventor, open the 3DxWare GUI (you have to do it from the Windows control panel or the desktop icon, not the systray icon) and select the default Inventor configuration. This should re-sync with 3DxInventor and fix your ...

Hi wetterberg, The 3DxWare driver doesn't (yet) support more than one of our devices attached at the same time so I can't be of much help. When we do implement this, though, I would think we would be able to get the USB bus address that each device is on and use that to distinguish between them. I w...

Hi duffy6,

This could be a saved configuration from a previous 3DxSoftware release (if you had a previous device). Open the 3DxWare panel and reselect the default Pro/E configuration while Pro/E is running.

Let us know if this helps.

We'd be thrilled to have more students using our devices. Note that we have special pricing for students and now have a $59 device specifically targeted at students. The $59 SpaceNavigator is a little bigger, heavier than the SpaceTraveler, but it works with all the same applications. It only has tw...

I don't think we've ever tried it, but it might be possible. The problem may be with the registry. There are some entries that are expected to be in HKLM. Students won't have write access to those entries. The best option is to ghost and distribute a machine with 3DxWare installed. Of course, the au...

Hi Scott, To transfer to a completely new environment you need to do two things: 1) Copy all your saved user profiles (*.scg files) from %APPDATA% in the old environment to %APPDATA% in the new environment. 2) Export all the relationships between those profiles and the application names. These are s...

From Ken: "Anything prior to version 11m3 has a bottle neck problem. It will crash if used with a USB device. The fix is to slow down the USB data rate." The bottleneck problem is a bug in I-DEAS that causes it to crash if it gets data too fast from the input device. I guess it was fixed in 11m3. If...

Hi gforrest, It is nearly impossible for your hand to move one axis without generating crosstalk along another axis. To eliminate crosstalk you have to use a filter of some sort. The driver provides a single-axis-at-a-time filter called "Dominant" in the App Configuration tab of the GUI. It eliminat...

Hi Mike,

Then there is only one more thing to try.

Edit the config file and change:

MACRO_MECHANISM = 0

to

MACRO_MECHANISM = 1

If that doesn't work, I'm out of ideas.

You could have opened the 3DxWare GUI and turned all the axes on in either the Advanced Tab or the App Configuration tab. PanOnly and ZoomOnly are not toggles (good suggestion though). You can assign "Translations" to another button. It is a toggle.

Oops, sorry. I just read that you are on an x64 system. 3DxOffice doesn't work on x64. You can try one more thing. Your saved user config files should be saved under your %APPDATA% directory. Edit one of these, say the Combustion one, with wordpad (It has to be a Unicode-capable editor). Find the li...

Hi Mike, These other apps were supported because of our generic Windows plugin called [somewhat misleadingly] 3DxOffice. It provided not only support for Office apps, but other otherwise unsupported Windows apps. The easiest way to reestablish the use of your previous config files is to reinstall 3D...
