"3DxWareMac_v10-7-0_r3277" beta driver.
I can confirm full functionality and good performance with Autodesk Fusion 360 on Macbook Pro 16", MacOS Big Sur and the wired SpaceMouse Pro.
Thank you for a quick solution!
Thanks for the confirmation, mudden_swe.

We're not quite there yet but it's getting closer.

CAD Mouse Pro middle mouse button not working

Cinema 4D r23 specifically. The Customize Commands window does not recognize the middle mouse button. See attached for some info. Kinda lost without this button.

I am using two of the new M1 Macs (mini and MacBook Air).
Tried the latest driver of today with the SpaceNavigator and Google Earth - and I have still no success. While the SpaceNavigator gets properly detected and does affect navigation in Google Earth, it's just making weird movements rendering the control useless. There seems work to be done. Can this be a bug in Google Earth or is there a way the SpaceNavigator can/should be configured to run as it did before?

Are the settings from the system settings > 3DConnexion respected?
Using C4D the pan and zoom seem inverted and even disabling them entirely via settings has no effect.

Just installed the Beta Drivers, thank you guys!
While you are already working on the update, maybe it is also a good time to implement an additional feature:

Automatically orbiting about the blue center dot like on the Windows version. I already posted this feature request some months ago, but got no response: https://forum.3dconnexion.com/viewtopic ... 23&t=39623

This feature addition would be completely amazing guys!

Have a great day,
Rudi

Beta driver does not work with secondlife on either Catalina or Big Sur. It operates with the trainer app, is visible to secondlife, bit mo movement to. motion or. button activation.
Installed beta8. Still no joy.

When you try to access the preferences it comes up with a blank window now. Great!!

It doesn't seem to be a universal problem... 3Dconnextion system settings are all visible to me. Same driver and same OS version as vlxjim.

Google Earth Pro 7.3.3 running on macOS Big Sur 11.0.1 is completely broken with a SpaceMouse Compact.

The mouse seems to "stick" and is also severely delayed and sometimes doesn't respond at all. It's totally unusable.

There seems to have been a big failure somewhere at 3Dconnexion. We have known Big Sur is coming out for months with countless betas released for developers to test their software against.

There appears to have been no development or testing carried out until the final public release is available. Why?

Nevertheless it is still a problem that didn't exist in any previous drivers including betas.

OK I uninstalled the driver using the 3Dconnexion uninstall app. I reinstalled the latest driver where the preference plane which show up displaying a space mouse wireless device. It would not display the Enterprise. I uninstall the driver and reinstalled the latest driver this time with the Enterprise plugged in it now shows up correctly in the preference plane with all controls available.

I can confirm that the lock button issue has been addressed as well as the display as far as my brief testing has gone.
