Some of our users seem to be able to use their 3DConnexion mice with Lumion (You'll need the latest driver software from 3D Connexion).

Have you already read these threads?

Please let us know if it still doesn't work, so that I can file a bug report.

I just bought 3d Connexion's newest product, the Spacemouse Pro. I've installed all the latest drivers and it works great in all my 3d programs except Lumion. If I even just just touch the Spacemouse while in Lumion, it points the camera straight up and continuously spins about. Once it starts spinning the only thing to do is close the program. So, I don't use it in Lumion. It would be nice, but the game-like controls in Lumion are so easy and nice I don't mind not being able to use the 3dConnexion mouse in it.

BTW, the Spacemouse Pro is awfully cool; it's wonderful in Max and Sketchup!

Thanks for reporting this, Darbo - I've added this to the bug tracker list, so that they can investigate the problem.

Is anyone else able to use their 3D Connexion products in Lumion 2?

You can't use the standard 3DxWare 9 that comes with the spacemouse.  You must download the 3DxWare 10 Beta which allows you to configure the spacemouse as a 2D mouse.

Just tested in Lumion 2 B2.  Works perfectly.

So, you've tested this driver with the new Spacemouse Pro? According to the 3d Connexion forum that driver isn't available/compatible with the Spacemouse Pro (http://www.3dconnexion.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=4781).

My mistake.  I have the Space Navigator.  You can keep up with the beta releases here: http://www.3dconnexion.com/supported-software/3dxlabs.html

You could always try it.
