    3d connexion setting question

    So i downloaded and installed 2012 I borrowed from a friend a 3dconnexion Space Navigator to see what is the filling to navigate through your models.

    I have a question. The navigation is very tricky because I can`t change the settings from Object Mode to Camera mode or other options . Now all the model is rotating around the pivot point that is the center of the model or the center of a selected object). The same behavior like oribiting by cube. It`s very annoying. The menu for changing this is showed in the attached picture but it isn`t show up in Revit. So it`s not so fun in object mode (i think this is the setting now). I installed the 3dconnexion driver before revit 2012. Is this a problem?
    Can somebody give me some advices?

    In the mouse help for Autocad, they say that the driver install some buttons in UI for changing the navigation mode. This makes me thinking that maybe i have to reinstall the driver so the it can add some buttons to Revit UI (now driver was installed before Revit)...

    Edit: Nothing happens here when I pressed the left button(as they say in help). In other aplications it`s working.

        In the Nav Bar on the right of the screen below the view cube, when the device is plugged in, you should see an icon that looks like the navigator. Clicking that will get you the menu as well.

          Thanks for reminding me that Revit 2012 can use a spacemouse

          It's brilliant!

          I have waited years since buying my SpaceExplorer to use it in Revit, and this looks well worth the wait.

          The control is so delicate and much smoother than using Shift+click in 3D isometric views.

          The only problem is getting used to the 'helicopter pilot' nature of the big control button - I might have to reset the push/pull directions.

          Whoever has implemented this appears to have done a really good job on it. :beer:

            Even in 2D pan and zoom the space explorer is very nice to use.

            In 3D it is so good that I've switched over to using Revit 2012 for work already.

            3dconnexions have a Revit page now I see as well:

                I have to say that these devices are very well made - I inverted all the default motion directions as I found it easier for me and there are a lot of things you can customise in the software.

                You'll need the latest driver for it to work with Revit I suspect...

                    Hey, I've just realised... there are Revit commands listed in the options for setting what the buttons do on the space mouse!

                    Not use to having gadgets recognise Revit... we must have hit mainstream acceptance !
