Re: Combining translation and rotation into correct matrices. CAD package

It's impossible to give you exact recommendations without having all the code. I can only give you guidelines. 1) Work with only 1 DOF at a time. Once that is working add more. 2) Work with constant values at first. Don't let the variable nature of the input confuse things. 3) Get translations worki...

Re: Driver problem

The device driver that you should see in use in the Device Manager, can be manually loaded (in the devmgr) from:
C:\Program Files\3Dconnexion\3DxWare\3DxWinCore64\Drivers\3DxHID\Win64

Once that is loaded, you should see the proper name of the device in the devmgr.

Re: Combining translation and rotation into correct matrices. CAD package

Email sent. The demo uses Media3D classes to do the math. It doesn't use matrices. I included a C# version of our C/C++ function SPW_ArbitraryAxisToMatrix. But in this case, it isn't used. The Media3D classes seem to work fine, though I'm not sure I completely understand what they are representing. ...

Re: Combining translation and rotation into correct matrices. CAD package

I have some WPF code which uses QuaternionRotation3D from System.Windows.Media.Media3D. I can email the entire sample to you if you like. public void UpdateCube(Vector3D tv, Vector3D rv) { ModelVisual3D mv = this.theViewport3D.Children[1] as ModelVisual3D; Transform3DGroup t3dg = mv.Transform as Tra...

Are you getting interest on the F360 forums?
Can you count the GitHub downloads?

Re: Combining translation and rotation into correct matrices. CAD package

I'd call it more like: forever { ; given new force & torque components from the 3D mouse [M'] = [Rx'][Ry'][Rz'][X'][Y'][Z'] ; if M is a 4x4 you should be able to do translations and rotations together. [M] = [M][M'] ; make sure you are accumulating in a matrix, not in the individual device component...

Re: Fusion 360 2D drawings mode

That's terrific. Post it and let's get some feedback. It would be nice if the F-360 forum users would also comment in this topic so I can see their feedback. We can use the driver's extension mechanism to fix some of these issues. The cfg file for AcCoreConsole.exe will likely get used by other Auto...

Re: keyboard, mouse and joystick emulation ?

Anibus9, It may help to increase the deadband on the axes to limit the crosstalk. There is an AxisFilter that passes either the entire translation vector OR the entire rotation vector through, depending on which is larger: <AxisFilter>LargestOfTranslationOrRotation</AxisFilter> It should allow you t...

Re: keyboard, mouse and joystick emulation ?

Anubis9: I think this works. Having two keyboard modifiers does not work (WIN-432). The XML has to be modified manually. The GUI can't help. You need an Axis definition similar to this: <Axis> <Enabled>true</Enabled> <Input> <ActionID>HIDMultiAxis_X</ActionID> <Min>-512</Min> <Max>511</Max> <Deadban...

Re: Fusion 360 2D drawings mode

jgroeli, That's progress. You definitely are earning an advanced certificate in cfg editing. The Zoom function is often not very smooth. It depends on the app. Sometimes apps support many zoom (scale) levels. Sometimes only a few. Web apps in particular are often limited. The <Grab>Hard</Grab> is re...

Re: Inventor environments wont change in 3dx properties

You are back on the work machine, or still at home? Re: the home machine: the SPP consumes a fair amount of power. I haven't heard about it in years, but it is possible the home machine either doesn't supply enough power (try a powered hub), or it detects that it is using more power than it is expec...

Re: Use 3DConnexion mouse as 2D

Don't use that file. It would try to override this one. It's also from an old version and incompatible. Delete all your user cfg files if there is any question. When Chrome is in focus, your GUI should say "Chrome WPPZ". I've put a new version that fixes some of those anomalies here . It keeps the c...

Re: Anyone having trouble with 3DConnexion?

Where are you? US / Europe? We'll get you straightened out. Don't reinstall your O/S. It's not magic. These are just files. 1) What O/S are you running? 2) If you go back and forth between 3DxWare versions, you stand the chance of having incompatibilities with your saved config files. They only upgr...
