Accessing USB Data into Fusion 360

Hello, I am trying to develop a script (plugin) for Fusion 360 that can read data from an USB input device. In particular, I have an additional stream of data coming from a gaming mouse (in addition to XY data). Are there APIs that can be used to access a HID device like a mouse in Fusion 360 ?

Hello,

 

Unfortunately we don't have APIs to support the kind of requirements. Could you please explain a little bit what you want to do with the HID device in Fusion?

 

Thanks,

Marshal

I would recommend doing some searching online for existing Python libraries.  I would be surprised if there isn't something for this.

Thanks Marshal. What I am trying to do is use a button from a gaming mouse for performing some additional functionalities.

@ekinsb Thanks for your reply. After I get that data from the HID device through a python script, how do I integrate it with Fusion 360 ?
