Moving 3D mouse cancels command

465 Views, 6 Replies

I have AutoCAD LT 2011 and a 3D Connexion space navigator. My problem is that whenever I move the mouse, the command that I'm currently on gets canceled. For example, if I am moving something and it's asking me for the target location and I move the 3d mouse to navigate there, I get canceled out of the move command. This essentially means I can't use my 3d mouse for commands (a big problem!).

 

Anybody else have this issue and how did they resolve it?

 

Also, I used to use AutoCAD 2008 and didn't have any problems. I emailed Logitech, but they said that AutoCAD now handles the 3d connexion drivers (version 2011 and up), so they can't help me...

We are experiencing the exact same problem, with ACAD 2012 and 3Dconnexion Space Navigator USB, latest drivers.

Nope. Not using AutoCAD has been working the best. Otherwise, I am not touching the puck at all if using AutoCAD (rare use).

No working solutions so far. You can see what some people have said on the other thread I started, but none of the solutions there worked for me. http://forums.autodesk.com/t5/AutoCAD-LT/Moving-3D-mouse-cancels-command/td-p/3057416

This solution from 3Dconnxion through their facebook page: Set the visual style to anything other than 2dwireframe.  So now I'm using plain wireframe when working in top view and no cancelled commands when panning or zooming. Awesome!!! Just make sure nav cube and nav bar are on.
