Spacemouse Support for Fluent & Ensight

Tagged: ,

      I use a 3DConnexion SpaceMouse at work, and enjoy using it in applications such as SpaceClaim or CFD-Post. However, as far as I can tell, it is still not supported in Fluent, Fluent Meshing, and Ensight applications which I use most frequently on a day to day basis. Is there any plans at Ansys to extend support for 3DConnexion devices to Fluent and Ensight? I've been using both products for about 1.5 years, since ~21R1 release and despite many improvements and new features, still no support for 3DConnexion products. Any insights greatly appreciated.

      As for EnSight, we really don't have support for the 3DConnexion SpaceMouse. Its method of input and motion does not work well with EnSight's recording of commands (including camera position at any time). We have looked at implementing in the past, but this breaks our command language and recording of views (which is needed for all subsequent commands to work properly). So, unfortunately, it does not comply with EnSight's work/camera environment.
