just wondering, have you spotted the problems with behaving the 3d navigator in SE 8 ?
I have a problem with zooming in in 3d environment, but in 2d everything works fine.
I am using the newest driver from 3Dconnection.
No problems here with my space pilot pro.
Since I upgraded to the newer style, it's been hit and miss. Sometimes zoom will stop working in either a modeling environment and also in drawings. Quite aggravating considering I never had these issues with my space pilot. But with the space pilot pro, with the color screen, it has issues. Sometimes the driver will stop working altogether. No idea why.
If your driver stops working entirly, mayby re-install the 3dconnection software?
Years ago we had problems with the drivers not starting with starting up the computer. At some we found out that our profiles were just corrupt on the network.
Done this, no difference. I feel like I liked my Space Pilot much better than the Space Pilot Pro. Had far less problems.
