Any way to increase speed? Set to max (20) and still slow!


Thanks

Hi Keith, Should have mentioned I tried that with no improvement!

 

2014 version is much faster and fluid!

ALT does give you a major speed bump for 3dconnexion 3d mouse.  If it is not for you Dean, check your settings within the SpaceNavigator (its the mouse interface program that's running all the time in your windows background).  Also make sure you have the recent driver for 3DxWare installed; either 10.7.2 or 10.8.3 work great.

Isn’t there a lightening bolt in the middle of the toolbar?

3D zoom speed has always been slow, even on its fastest setting ... IMHO the fastest speed should be the slowest on that scale, and go up from there.

 

Has ANYONE NOT set the zoom to it's fastest setting. I don't even know why there is the option to have it any slower except for walkthroughs, but they should be controllable separately.

My settings. 3D movement with either the mouse or the 3D mouse is very fast.

Thanks guys.

 

I agree its super slow. Unfortunately I use a laser mouse and have tried the 3Dconnect units but revert back to my laser.

 

As mentioed 2014 is much faster! Cheers


Thanks

You have to re-set your 3d toolbar, then the lighting bolt will show up.

Still slow though when engaged! THX

Thanks David and Dean, I just reset the toobar and the icon is now there.  The speed DOES increase with the icon clicked.  For faster speed Dean, use the ALT key, may have to adjust the 3Dconnection settings as Bill suggested.

 

The lightning bolt highlighted is perfect for me now.
