I am a Houdini TD and my python coding days have only recently begun. Seeing as how any 3d program worth its salt has python integration these days I was hoping to work with an existing python library to connect my space navigator to Houdini. At home i am using a MacBook pro and at work the studio is on 64bit Linux. So is there a way to hook into a python 3dconnexion library. It would really make this glowing paperweight get busy.

I'm using pyglet (trunk) with its capability to handle HID over operating system HID interfaces (such as evdev, *wink* *wink* 3dconnexion), which works for me. I also wrote a device configuration framework to handle many devices.

Hi, I'd be quite interested by an easy way to use the 3d mouse in a python program too. Pyalot, could you be a bit more specific (may be a small code sample?) ? Cheers,

Some examples and details would be highly appreciated. I'm working as a TD and developing tools for 3D software (mainly MotionBuilder) on win 32/64.

Thanks in advance
