I too have a 3Dconnexion space mouse and it fails to work properly in the software.

This is a real shame as it speeds up the workflow and usability of the software immensely.

Are there some settings I should be aware of to make this work? At present I have all of the control settings to control the 3D model, but only zoom works and very poorly at that.

I have the same problem in the latest version 1.2.6 as well as the WIP 1.3

Thanks in advance for looking into this.

It seems no one of Agisoft is reading this... Navigating in your 3d environment is a real pain without a 3d mouse!
Turning the object with the mouse and then switching back to selection tools etc. is extreeemly annoying, also due to the fact that your 3D model movement is surprisingly unintuitive.

Hello,

We are checking all forum threads regularly.

In the version 1.4 the support for 3D Connexion SpaceMouse and Stealth 3D Mouse Controller would be implemented.

Hi,

I have a Sthealth 3D mouse modell S1-Z. The connection is by USB port and not by COM1 port. COM1 port is the only one i can choose in Agisoft. How i can configure it?

Regards,
Luis

Hello Luis,

After you connect Stealth Mouse with the computer using USB you should go to the Device Manager, locate USB serial converter and in it's properties enable VCP (Virtual COM Port), then re-connect controller to the same USB port and again in the Device Manager you'll see COM3 port. After that you should be able to select COM3 in PhotoScan preferences window for the controller.

Hello all,

Additional information related to the 3D controller support. In the pre-release update of the version 1.4.0 (build 5420) it is possible to invert the navigation directions and adjust the sensitivity in the Navigation tab of PhotoScan Preferences window.
