Ability to use SpaceMouse Pro inside Internet Explorer

Post by sgrant » Thu Sep 21, 2017 1:42 pm

I've rendered a 360 degree panoramic view in Autodesk Revit and have saved the view out in an html link. When I click on the file to open it, it takes me to Internet Explorer where I can view the 360 rendering with my mouse. I'd like to be able to use the SpaceMouse Pro to navigate the view instead of my mouse. Below is the link to the view.

I also need browser support, mainly Chrome but others also.

I have a hardware device that supports six axes of freedom and the connexion products would be a perfect adjunct. The control software is limited to a browser app and there is no desktop OS support.

I'm prepared to write drivers for all OS' to browsers if it is possible. I am just now investigating what is required for javascript. I assume I will need the user to install an extension.

Any help would be appreciated. The support for browsers would surely expand the market for connexion devices.

I just discovered that the browser-based cad program OnShape supports the Space Mouse so I know it is possible. I see they did this in cooperation with Connexion. Is a driver available for developers?

Hi all,

our driver provides an addin for the browser (not IE) that enables 3D mouse support for a browser based application. But the application (like Onshape) has to make use of it.

Our SDK can be found here.

Hi UtaSH,

I downloaded the SDK for Mac, and I found a bunch of example projects.

I am mainly interested in using the SpaceMouse Pro in my webapplication (javascript).

You mentioned the driver adds a browser addin. Could you please point me to that addin, or is there no need to explicitly install it?

Also, how can I find the webapp make use of it? Is there a documentation of the browser addin?

Thanks for helping!!

Hi jetic,

please contact our developers with your questions. You can either post them in the developer forum or contact them by email. The contact details can be found on the download site of the SDK.
