I have a LONG history with Blender - I wrote some of the earliest Blender tutorials, worked for Not a Number and helped run the crowdfunding campaign that open sourced Blender (the first one on the internet!). I founded BlenderNation in 2006 and have been editing it every single day since then ;-) I also run the Blender Artists forum and I'm Head of Community at Sketchfab.


  1. Awesome.

    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!

  2. 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?

  3. 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.

    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.

  5. 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.
