Space Navigator PE Driver Development Thread
PROGRESS: We've now decoded the data that comes back from the HID device, and pending some development to make it do something useful. This is no longer a Girder defition file, it'll be a multiplatform stand-alone app
Following some developments in this thread, a Girder definition is now under development for the 3DConnexion SpaceNavigator PE. This is a device that has 6 axis of motion, and two buttons.
So far, thanks to cherrybomb, it has been found that the latest version of Girder does not work with the HID plugin, as the previous verison did (4.0.1). Having downloaded this and configured the HID plugin, the values being read shown:
00 00 00 00 00 00
pressing buttons 1 or 2, give definitive values (first two digits change only), but things move way too fast to be able to determine how the different axis affect the numbers. I just about see that moving along some axis, sets some pair to FF, and others start playing.
Also, to add to the spice, i think the pan motion, is in fact a combination of two motions. Since this device is like a hat on a stick, then the stick moving forward AND the hat being tilt backwards equates to a panning action.
Anyway, I think a seperate development thread is in order for this, rather than a price drop one! So here it is... I'll post any updates here
Let's start with the simple bit shall we:
Button Left: 01 00 00 00 00 00
Button Right: 02 00 00 00 00 00
Both BUttons: 03 00 00 00 00 00
