Space navigator and 2.59 RC

I am infintely grateful to Mike and Polo and probably a bunch of other hardworking mostly anonymous people who got Space Navigator support installed in 2.59 RC. :D :D :D :D :D :D

Thanks

Looks like we are going to drool through 2.58 as well.

This has been kicking around since 2.5 beta, almost 2 years ago. I am a long time Blender user. Like it very much and am grateful for the donated labors of many individuals. But I have this image of the Blender and the 3dconnection guys pointing their fingers at the other group. Nothing has happened...

Space navigator and Blender 2.5

I fully realize that this is not a commercial product - have been using Blender for over 10 years. Rhino and many other 3D modelling packages have had continuous support for 3D joysticks like space navigator forever. Regardless of numerous assurances, it seems to me that this is not going to happen ...

I have been using Blender for over 10 years and am very grateful for all the work that has been done by volunteers.

The new interface looks great, but is useless to me until we get a space navigator driver.

Hope we don't have to wait until Blender 2.6 (or 2.7, 2.8...). :(

BlenderCookie

BlenderCookie just concluded an excellent, substantial collection of tutorials (2010 Blender Training Series). Not free, but definitely worth it. Been using Blender since it was NaN shareware. I think that the Training Series is the best out there.

SpaceNavigator fails on XP as well blender 2.53

Just wanted to add that Blender 2.49 works well with SpaceNavigator (Windows XP - 32 bit), but fails with 2.53. This is most probably on 3DConnection, but there are a number of us (on several platforms) that use this tool.

Is 3D mouse support on the 2.53 roadmap?

As previously reported, Space Navigator mouse works fine on 2.49, but no longer works on 2.53 beta.
