Problems with using a Space Navigator (Space Ball) In AutoCAD

I’m currently “Space Navigator” (also known as a Space Ball) in AutoCAD. It worked great in Inventor and Solid Works at my last job, but for AutoCAD its doing some goofy stuff.



For Some reasons when I’m in curtain views it won’t let me rotate around curtain axis.  For instance:

  • Top and bottom view, no Y axis rotation.
  • Left and right view, no Z axis rotation.
  • Front and back view, no Z axis rotation.



Dose anyone have any idea on why its limiting rotation in curtain views? If so, how do you fix it?


Side Note:

Its not anything in the “Space Navigator” parameters, everything works fine in the set up and test options. Its something with AutoCAD


Thanks in advance for the help
