Re: Custom game config with tutorial - I need some help

That's very nice. I generally tell people that Base.xml is the dictionary and you are creating the book. That is, Base.xml has all the words, that you pick from to create a specific cfg for your app/game. If you want to override something, you can look in there for the default, and most importantly,...

Re: Change the default button settings

It's possible, but horribly difficult to do this, ATM. It may be easier in a future release. Stay tuned.

Re: Change the default button settings

Do you use the SpaceMouse Pro with 3D applications? Or just Office & Windows apps.

It is possible to assign buttons globally, but then they would also be assigned in your 3D apps.

Re: Change the default button settings

You want to change all of them on every single application?
Or just some buttons for some applications?

Re: SketchUp 2020 and Enscape 3d

Sorry. We don't have a good solution for Enscape at this time.
I'll work with you off-line to try to come up for something for you.
PM sent.

Re: Combining translation and rotation into correct matrices. CAD package

As we introduce more, varied devices, our strategy on button events has changed over the years to get farther away from the specific hardware events. We now recommend using our generic Virtual 3D Commands. These are independent of the hardware that generates them. The driver has to be told what sort...

Re: Chrome Smooth Scrolling

You get no help from the GUI, but you can dig into your Chrome.xml file. Copy the <Settings> element from AppDefCfg_S80.xml: <ResponseCurve> is the acceleration 1.0 is linear, 2.0 is quadratic etc. You can modify the Device entries to add Input.Deadband and Output.Scale: <AxisBank Default="true"> <I...

Re: Chrome Smooth Scrolling

The problem is that n-lines per tick is an operating system setting. It isn't per device. Possibly your 2D mouse also has a way of scaling up.

You can adjust the 3D mouse quite a bit, deadzone, acceleration ramp, linear scaling, but it can't control the OS mousewheel behavior.

Re: Chrome Smooth Scrolling

Hi Peter,

You can scale the 3D mouse axis in our GUI when Chrome is in focus to make it scroll faster.
If the Speed slider on the main page doesn't make it go fast enough, there's an additional slider on the Advanced Settings page which will further scale it.

Re: Combining translation and rotation into correct matrices. CAD package

It's impossible to give you exact recommendations without having all the code. I can only give you guidelines. 1) Work with only 1 DOF at a time. Once that is working add more. 2) Work with constant values at first. Don't let the variable nature of the input confuse things. 3) Get translations worki...

Re: Driver problem

The device driver that you should see in use in the Device Manager, can be manually loaded (in the devmgr) from:
C:\Program Files\3Dconnexion\3DxWare\3DxWinCore64\Drivers\3DxHID\Win64

Once that is loaded, you should see the proper name of the device in the devmgr.

Re: Combining translation and rotation into correct matrices. CAD package

Email sent. The demo uses Media3D classes to do the math. It doesn't use matrices. I included a C# version of our C/C++ function SPW_ArbitraryAxisToMatrix. But in this case, it isn't used. The Media3D classes seem to work fine, though I'm not sure I completely understand what they are representing. ...

Re: Combining translation and rotation into correct matrices. CAD package

I have some WPF code which uses QuaternionRotation3D from System.Windows.Media.Media3D. I can email the entire sample to you if you like. public void UpdateCube(Vector3D tv, Vector3D rv) { ModelVisual3D mv = this.theViewport3D.Children[1] as ModelVisual3D; Transform3DGroup t3dg = mv.Transform as Tra...
