3DConnexion tab in Siemens NX

Post by eobet » Fri Sep 17, 2021 4:06 am

We used to have this tab named 3DConnexion with Set Rotation Reference and Clear Rotation Reference in it, but now it's gone (site wide).

The user profiles did not change between NX1961 to NX1988, so something else has removed it.

Can anyone here assist on how to get it back?

The answer seems to be: Update to the latest driver version, and the tab will automatically reappear.

Are there any plans to update the icon graphics in NX, btw? They look very amateurish... (and also scaled to the wrong size, since some of them are blurry).

One more thing, while I'm at it:

The "fly through" mode in NX is not tailored to the SpaceNavigator at all. It seems to be made for keyboard and mouse, with 3DConnexion support very poorly tacked on. Everyone where I work who is coming from Catia complains about this. Is there anything you can do on the 3DConnexion side to help them fix it up to the standard of pretty much everyone else? Because they're lagging far, far behind...
