Nathan Letwory writes:

A short demo to show that 2-handed powermode with 3DConnexion devices works in Blender 2.5 (since 24.07.2011, thanks to Mike Erwin).


  • Benni-chan

    wow, that looks great. can't wait to test it out myself

  • Reavenk

    @0:48 Agh! You just blew my mind!

  • TxRx

    I've missed this from 2.49 and I can't wait to make use of my space navigator (puck) again!

  • jakchit

    Awesome. Now I want one of those controllers!!

  • DoeJoe

    OK great. So how do we get our hands on this build. I've only been waiting 2 years.



  • ghuck

    Oh how I missed my navagator from working in blender since 2.49. It's finnally comming back.

  • Aaron

    Pretty darn tootin'! I want one! =D

  • TxRx

    I really hope it'd make it into the proposed bi-monthly build updates in the offcial BF builds. Any build of this on Graphicall?

  • Canhen

    It seems that i need to get a space navigator:)

  • Nemesis

    Please build this into the next revision of the standard Blender build for download.

    Now my wife won't be happy though .. was working on getting her to agree to an Intuous .. now I need to talk her into both the Wacom AND the Space Navigator!

  • 4museman

    This is one of the things I miss for a long time. My SpaceNavigator is resting in a shelf.

    Very nice!!!

  • yudhir

    Does Wacom tablets work on blender..i wanted to know.

  • TxRx

    They do on Windows (32bit and x64) haven't tested it in Linux tho.

  • Mark

    Hmmnn... Downloaded the latest Mac and PC releases (2.58a) and neither appears to have support enabled. Is there a preference I should be setting to enable functionality?

  • Mark

    Ooops... Just realized that this is not in the standard PC/MAc release. Sorry.

  • beta-tester

    did you download that version from

    e.g. for win x64:

    for me that version works...

  • Mark


  • Niko40

    I always wanted spacepilot navigator. Lessii... .... ... 400$ Well that's... Enough. I think I'll just settle for the puck thing. 100$ doesn't sound that bad anymore.

  • Nemesis

    @ yudhir

    All graphic tablets work in Blender. I have a Wacom 4 XL and everything works perfectly, including mice and various pens.

    I have a Spacepilot pro and am looking forward to seeing this advance incorporated into the next upgrade of Blender. 2.49 with a spacepilot is brilliant and the workflow is so fast.

  • zimboe

    great to see this.
    is there a build for download somewhere?
    when will this find its way into a release?

  • zimboe

    reloading before posting helps... ;)

  • fabio

    I know that no space for it anymore and I have my video guys leave here and go over it to your friends and please feel free to comment thanks

  • Pedro

    This is a great start, but in blender 2.60 I can't find where to set up the up/down, pan movements. Also assigning user defined functions to the buttons doesn't seem to work yet. Hopefully it will in the next version.

  • Pedro

    ups - I forgot to mention in the above post that I mean for the spacepilot and space explorer
