Thanks! This is really nice. Got it working great on Mac OS 10.15, once I set up a profile for Cura in the SpaceMouse preferences (which seems to control the overall sensitivity). Had to tweak some of the scalings directions in the plugin  to get it to work in ways that felt intuitive to me - which I guess comes down to whether you feel like you're moving the viewer or the object. But it's a very nice improvement!

Dear BURTOOGLE,

 

I have just installed your plugin, I have adjusted it slightly, and it is working beautifully.

I absolutely love it!!!

 

Thank you very much!!!

 

Can I donate to you?

 

You really changed the Cura experience.

 

Thanks again.

 

Diego

    Hi,

     

    I have just added the plugin and there is a response. But, the rotations and movements are reversed and I cannot find a way to open the settings menu for the 3D mouse in Cura. (using Cura version 4.6.2)

     

    Can you please tell me how to open the settings menu?

     

    Best regards,

     

    Leo

    Please read the posts above (starting back at the very first post).  You have to edit a text "config" file.  It's explained in detail - where the file is and how to get Cura to reread the config file.

    I had been using RawMouse with Cura and it had been working great!  Recently I upgraded to Mac OS Big Sur and Cura 4.8.0.  I am no longer having any use of my 3Dconnexion Spacemouse.  Is there a newer Rawmouse needed or any change in configuration?  Please help as the use of the Spacemouse has been a huge help in Cura!

    There is a beta driver from 3DConnexion for Big Sur, maybe that helps. 

    I upgraded to Big Sur last weekend, installed the beta driver but haven't tried if raw mouse is still working - I can check it later.

    I had already installed the beta from 3Dconnexion for Big Sur.  The Spacemouse works fine with Fusion 360 (as well as it's demo program) but nothing happens with Cura.

    The crucial point is that RawMouse does not use the 3DConnexion driver at all.

     

    In contrary (from https://github.com/smartavionics/RawMouse/blob/master/README.md😞

    Quote

    "On systems that have an existing driver installed, you may need to disable that driver so that RawMouse can gain access to the device."

     

    Dunno, if libspnav library is mandatory or optional on MacOS?

    Damn, you are right, it is not working anymore in Cura.

    I just tested it in Fusion after the upgrade and haven't looked further.

    It seems that the RawMouse plugin has no permissions to open the USB device:

    ERROR - [RawMouse] RawMouse.RawMouse._run_hid [243]: Exception while reading HID events: open failed

    Tried some things, like gave Cura more permission in the security settings of MacOS, but not successful. 
    Mark wrote on Github, that we should try to deinstall the 3DConnexion driver to see if it helps, but haven't tried it yet.

     

    There is also an issue on Github already, so maybe @BPerry2020 can also share the infos there:
