3DConnexion SpaceMouse Compact, Pro or Enterprise


Hi All,

I'm curious what the experiences are with the 3DConnexion SpaceMouse and how Archicad and the 3DConnexion SpaceMouse are getting along at the moment.

Architectural construction designer, draftsman, modeller
ArchiCAD 25.

I have the enterprise, I love it so far but haven't had a chance to really dig in. Navigation works well but it doesn't scroll in the pallets.

i have to ask -- do you work from home & if you do, do you use Windows Remote Desktop from your home PC into your workstation at work?


i'm asking because i'm thinking of getting the 3DConnexion mouse to give me a workable 3D exploration via Remote Desktop at home. had a question about this issue where the 3D window spazzes out when i activate 'Fly':

the way i see it, the 3DConnexion mouse doesn't look like you're within the 'Fly' command to move around the model. you're more panning/zooming with the mouse WITHOUT activating 'Fly'.


(pretty much trying to bump my question at the bottom of the thread, which was left unanswered)

I work for myself so non of those questions apply to me.

However I have also never activated the fly with the space mouse so I could try that and see if I get the same issue where I only use my machines at home and I'm not virtually attached to anything

if i could trouble you for your time i'd appreciate it. 🙂

that **beep** thing isn't exactly cheap by any standard & i'm leaning toward getting the wireless version.

Spacemouse works great with all Archicad versions I worked with since R21 as I recall.

No issues whatsoever.


Can you scroll in toolbars in Archicad? Which one do you have?

hey man sorry to trouble you, but did you get around to test the 3D mouse while working from home to see if it works fine VS the spazzing out-3D Fly?

one of the computer shops here in Australia is selling the peripheral & have been working from home due to the high cases of the virus.
