3Dconnexion Mouse jumping

Mario Sacco
I just bought the 3Dconnexion Mouse wireless.
In Archicad it jumps when I move in any direction.
It works fine in Rhino, Sketchup and also in the 3Dconnexion 3d model test.
It doesn't depend on the detail of the model.
See the link of the video attached.

As you can see in the video the ucs reference compares during the visualization because the moving is interrupted and the result is a no smooth experience. The model is a cube in wireframe.

I'm not able to open the Radial Menu (RM Menu) using the 3Dconnexion buttons.
Tested in AC 24, 23, 20 with the same issue.

I tried to work on many setting without any improvement:
- Application - open low resolution
- Reduce all the option in Open GDL
- Reduce all the option in Work Environment
- Reduce the window
- Reduce monitor resolution.
- Change Overall speed in 3Dconnexion ARCHICAD setting
- Connect directly the mouse with the cable without the wireless
- Type in Monitor the code "sudo killall -STOP -c usbd" to avoid problem in USB alimentation
- Turn off internet connection
- Turn off other software
- Turn off spyware software
- Remove other USB Device

Someone else had the same problem?

Hi Mario,


Thank you for the new information!


To start with our investigation, may I ask for the following information?

- The model of the mouse

- The firmware version

- Operating System version

- Archicad version and build number

Thank you very much! One more thing: may I have the exact model of the 3DConnexion mouse? Is it a Spacemouse Pro or a Spacemouse Compact, etc...?

Please also address the issues of certain buttons on the 3D connexion not mapping shortcuts properly inside of Archicad. I took this issue up with 3D Connexion and they confirmed it's a local Archicad problem. Took it up the Graphisoft flag pole with no results in the updates for 2 years.


I have the spacemouse, spacemouse pro, and spacemouse enterprise.

In BIMX it doesn't work; I can't move anything.

But I can see the radial botton clicking on the button of the space mouse.-

Hi Minh,


I'm following up to see if there have any developments on Graphisoft's bug fix for the 3D connexion space mouse on Mac. I was hoping AC26 might resolve these issues, but alas the glitchy behavior is still there.

They will never fix it unless one of us becomes friends with someone that works at this company. I have send tech support requests for this every version for the last 3 years, and most recently during the 26 preview version feedback. Nothing has changed, always ignored.
