Does anyone know if there are drivers available (or in development) for SolidWorks, for this device.
I think a lot of users would like to be using this input device.
Video here :-https://www.leapmotion.com/
I have one of the Leap devices, but I haven't seen anything yet to control SW. I did manage to get some model movement with just the base Windows driver, but it was nearly uncontrollable.
BTW, it is not as easy as they make it seem to control things on sreen. Accurately holding an on screen position while moving your hand/arm toward the screen by a couple inches is not an easy task. Don't expect this device to replace the mouse, but it may someday replace a Space Pilot (or similar).
Emworks is a solidworks partner and they have been developping a prototype in conjunction with Leapmotion to implement interaction with Soldiworks .

I found a youtube video of a group making an opensource driver to use the Leap Motion controller with Solidworks, they say they had it working for 2012, but that it should work with newer versions.
It looks like they have a working system for it.
(I would really just change some of the gestures for it)
There doesn't seem to be much progress on that open source project, or at least it seems to have been quiet for about 9 months.
The Alpha from emworks.com works, but is very jumpy and hard to control. It is also kind of awkward to have to select different modes in the menu.
I can't seem to find the download on http://www.emworks.com/. Does anyone know where I could downlaod the alpha? Any help would be appreicated. Thanks in advance.
You have to contact the guy listed above to get the file sent to you.
