It's software supported list doesn't list Lightwave, the last time I checked.

right. And as I know, 3dconnexion delivers the plugs (or software hooks or whatever), but NT has to put it in. So you can't blame 3Dcon. But fortunately you're in the right place to blame NT :devil:
But others asked for it for long. Nothing happened so far.

It really is a shame.

This would be such a sweet way to work in Lightwave and apparenlty according to their forum not difficult to implement. Follows a quote from their (3dconnecions public forum)


Thanks for the question. This is a good opportunity to explain.

3Dconnexion does indeed develop custom solutions for some but not all of the applications that support our 3D controllers.
For the vast majority of applications on our list, the implementation is native. In other words, the application itself supports 3D controllers just like it supports, say, the mouse or a camera.

It just works and there is no need to install a plug-in. All that is required for those applications is our device driver, 3DxWare.

We aim to have all applications supporting our devices. There is no doubt about it. To that end, we advise our customers (current and future) to contact the Customer Service of any applications lacking support and letting them know how cool it would to add the feature.

Adding navigation support with 3D controllers is a simple programming task but is best done by -- who else -- the editor of the application.

We also appreciate if customers post here, in this Forum, any information provided by the editors regarding the support plans for 3Dconnexin devices.

It would be a gresat feature and well worh the effort. Bring it on NT
