Re: SpaceBall rotation stops when focus leaves main display panel in v0.18

Yes, same behaviour for me with self compiled version as per Vectronic instructions: once you click into e.g. the project window, the space navigator stops responding. OS: macOS 10.14 Word size of OS: 64-bit Word size of FreeCAD: 64-bit Version: 0.18.16110 (Git) Build type: Release Branch: (HEAD det...

Re: Freecad 0.18 on OSX 10.14.4 and Spacemouse - not recognised

Hi, yes, I have the normal 3Dconnexxion drivers, I don't believe that FreeCAD ever used the Spacenav stuff (edit: on OSX I mean, I think it used it for Linux!).

Re: Freecad 0.18 on OSX 10.14.4 and Spacemouse - not recognised

USB is the abbreviation of "Universal Serial Bus". so it support it. see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USB Yes, I am sure you are correct there! But I suspect they intended to differentiate the two things on the Spacenav web page: Spacenavd (as of version 0.6) supports all USB 3Dconnexion 6dof devi...

Re: Freecad 0.18 on OSX 10.14.4 and Spacemouse - not recognised

Then I guess we should add libspnav to conda-forge. Shouldn't be too much trouble for linux/osx. Not sure about windows. I'm not sure that libspnav is an option for OSX - at least, I think it never used to be, since the homepage says it supports only serial spacenavs on OSX - and I guess most peopl...

Re: Freecad 0.18 on OSX 10.14.4 and Spacemouse - not recognised

I am not sure if we can bundle the 3dconnexion stuff into the conda-forge packages. Doesn't this have any influence on the license? I have no idea! I don't know what the situation has been up to now, I guess the OSX version has been compiled on a machine with those drivers for the last few years at...

Re: Freecad 0.18 on OSX 10.14.4 and Spacemouse - not recognised

Hi Hajduk, I believe the reason is that the system they are compiling the Freecad binaries on now does not have the 3Dconnexion drivers installed. Following Vectronic's instructions, I compiled a version myself with space mouse support, see link below. This seemed to work quite nicely, but may be a ...

Re: conda-packages for osx

I've managed to do a repeatable build on macOS using the steps I've posted on my blog: https://vectronic.io/posts/building-freecad-with-3dconnexion-support-on-macos-using-conda/ Posting here in case it helps someone out at some point. Perfect, thank you very much for that, have been looking for thi...

Re: Space navigator support - macOS

Apologies, I had intended to post this in "Open discussion" - but seem to absently mindedly posted in the developer board!

Perhaps a moderator could move it?

Thanks!

Space navigator support - macOS

Hi All, The support for the 3d Connexxion Space Navigator on Mac seems to have disappeared from recent versions - I am not sure whether this has something to do with conda (assume this somehow replaces cmake as a compilation tool?). It's a bit of a pity, since it worked very nicely with Freecad, and...
