Once I shutdown for the night or reboot, it goes back to not functioning in SW. I have had to do this in the past when we updated to a newer version of Solidworks. I am going to take a look and see if it will help me. Is the spacemouse addin loaded in Solidworks? Please type your message and try again. Yes, there is a 3d control toolbar.

I have since then removed Solidworks to see if that would help, but didn’t. If the latter, then hit the button on the SpacePilot to enable rotation. This has been going on for a few days and is driving me nuts What I mean by it will not rotate is that the spacepilot will zoom, move, pan, but it will not actually rotate the object.

It seems I had a different issue all together. Have you tried uninstalling and reinstalling the software after you install Solidworks first?

This tool uses JavaScript and much of it will not work correctly without it enabled. Once I shutdown 22011 the night or reboot, it goes back to not functioning in SW.


You can also test this by starting the driver manually before running SolidWorks. If so, then yes, I did that.

They are running Windows 7, 64 bit. Also, when you say “will not rotate” do you actually mean no action, or do you really mean just no rotation? 3dconexion

I am going to take a look and see if it will help me. I am experiencing a similar problem The designers 3dconnexlon multiple designing softwares on a daily basis depending on the customer requirement. I installed SW onto their systems, leaving installed, and ever since then the spacepilot will not rotate objects in solidworks I have uninstalled the drivers, clean out the registry, rebooted and then reinstalled the drivers again, then it will work in SW.

If I could experiment that much with one of their machines, I would be happy to. Then Right-Click on “start driver’ and select the “run as administrator” option.

Do you mean uninstalling and resintalling the 3dconnexion software? Things I have done: I have the same question Show 0 Likes 0.

Thank You, but the command is in there already We have solidwork designers that use the spacepilot pro that came up with this problem after Solidworks was installed along side Solidworks Go to original post. There is a mode that turns off rotation and I wonder if that’s what you have set. I have not yet figured out how solirworks automate this process, so I am forced to do it each time I restart windows, but it has always worked for me.


That is what number 8 is on the list of things I tried that did not work.

Here is a link to the posting Paul, I am glad your issue was resolved. 3cdonnexion in this case that is not feasible. You can not post a blank message.

I contacted the 3dconnexion tech support and received these suggestions. Is that more clear? Make sure that the “Start 3DxWare” or “Start Driver” link was correctly put into your “startup” folder. I work in the IT department for my company.
