@nav Support for the 3D mouse in browsers on Macs requires implementation by 3D Connexion. Onshape is platform independent - so when that support is provided, Onshape will work with it. As Onshape is the first and only production CAD system that runs directly in browsers, 3D Connexion needed to develop new drivers. 3D Connexion was very pro-active in working with Onshape to both develop and beta test the Windows driver over the past several months - resulting in today's release. They chose to provide support first for browsers on Windows as that is by far their largest market and are actively considering developing drivers for browsers on Mac. We will forward your request to them and feel free to contact them directly with your request as well.

i love this!!!
ok it should work with my old space pilot too - yes?
zooming is working perfect
rotating (U,D,L,R) on the knob doesnt work
because its firefox you cant change this (?)
is there an other setting i have to do?
I'm also having the same issues with Onshape and the wireless space-mouse, in both Firefox and Chrome, zoom seems to work, but up, down, left, right and rotate are not working either singularly or in combination. I've also recently updated to Windows 10.
It will work with all new versions that are compatible with the newest driver, if the mouse is too old to work with the new driver that have OS implemented, it will not work, and will probably not get fixed.
I'm not exactly sure what was going on previously , but I uninstalled, rebooted, reinstalled and finally rebooted and this time around everything's working as expected, which is great, I must also add the having the 3D mouse working with Onshape is fantastic .
Zoom in & out worked but no rotate.
Asked the question of OnShape support who referred me to 3D Connexion as it apparently wasn't an OnShape problem.
I have been chasing it up with 3D Connexion for a week & they are apparently working on the issue.
However, without any new software updates, when logged into OnShape this morning, low & behold it works?????
Now this morning without changing anything, it all works
I use firefox for everything else and chrome for Onshape, this makes it easy for me to close the browser at the end of the day or restart if I have problems.
No promises, but maybe it will work for you!
was told this morning by OnShape on the phone that 3D connexion apparently works. Even found a page on the 3D Connexion site that state it is supported.
Although I still can't get it to work. OnShape guy told me to check with 3D Connexion that I needed to download something. Maybe I misunderstood.
I called up 3D Connexion. Guy there says he doesn't understand why it doesn't work.
With my 3D Connexion properties window open, when I click Onshape, it only sees chrome.
Which browser do you use? Have you tried empty cache + refresh?
I suggest that the onshape team allows users to configure their own 3d device driver based on the html 5 gamepad implementation. Not only would this allow legacy 3dconnexion devices to work but also allow users with gamepads to use some of that functionality as 3d devices (for the use with VR environments and the likes)
and you don't actually have to install a driver on the computer for the browser to register the inputs, so it is also not platform specific.
I'm also a linux user and i would also like to see 3d mouse support for onshape on linux.
As far as i can say 3D Connexion driver supports Linux. But i do not know how the connection of the driver to onshape is made through the browser. Not even sure if 3D Connexion need to implement this or chrom. Or even onshape? How was this done on windows. Could someone shed light on this.
@simon_4, A quick look further down the line indicates that the HTML5 gamepad API is nowhere close to the mechanism that Onshape is using to integrate with 3DConnextion products, and that for support on other OSes we will indeed have to wait for updates to 3DConnexions proprietary and closed source binary drivers on their schedule
It's disappointing to see Onshape leverage so much cross-platform capability for its main offering, and then throw in with a specific company that will only support certain OSes and versions of their products for this particular integration. I hope the business decisions behind this move are worth it.
