Hi.
  I just got the spacemouse 3D wireless.  It works with Sketchup and the 3DConnextion Trainer on my macs, but not with Metashape.

Actuating the SpaceMouse in a model view has no effect on the model view (normal mouse dragging does move the view as expected.)

In Metashape I have enabled HID compliant controller and selected Spacemouse Wireless in the Controller dropdown.
In System Preferences, Privacy tab of Security panel, I have given Metashape "input Monitoring" permission... although I don't believe it should need it for an HID compliant device.

Is there anything else I need to do to use the spacemouse with metashape? 

Thanks,
Keith

Metashape Professional Version 2.0.3 build 16960

MacOS Monterey 12.6.2, iMacPro intel 2017

Same behavior on M2 laptop running Ventura.

Hi, Keith!

I see a similar problem on macOS Monterey 12.3.1. Sometimes unplugging and plugging back usb adaptor makes spacemouse working.

Make sure there is no other 3d application is open that may be using spacemouse.

Also uninstalling 3dxware driver from Applications/3DConnexion folder seems to make spacemouse work more stable within Metashape. Although it may stop working in other apps.

Please, let me know, if any of this helps.

Regards, Egor

Egor -- Thanks!
  The combination of no other 3D apps running (which I had not tried before), and unplug/replug USB solved the problem. 
Thanks for the help!
