Have you tried re calibrating it? ( the space explorer)
What video card driver do you have installed? Did you update it when you upgraded to SW2013?
This is the calibrate button Greg is referring to in the 3DxWare software.
Thanks. I tried the calibration button, but that does not make any difference.
I also upgrade the Nvidea driver from version 197.90 to the one recommended by Anna's link: 296.70. Also no difference: the stuttering still goes on in assemblies in SW 2011 and SW 2013SP3.
In SW 2008 however the mouse still works fine and smooth no matter movements with the pointer I make.
It's a mystery...
Idea: Can it be effected by tools-options differences between the SW versions?
The number of components in the model plays a huge role in this problem. For instance today in SW 2011 with a small assembly of 45 components, the 3dmouse works fine. But the same assembly with 353 components unsuppressed, the mouse movements are blocked and the stuttering starts.
What can that be?
I don't know if it's my imagination, but I switched from USB2.0 to 3.0 and it seems to improve things...easy thing to try. My M6700 has a mix of ports.
Matt, my machine has USB2.0 ports...;-(
I posted this problem at my VAR. Let's hope they can come up with an answer.
By the way: SW 2008 still works smooth with the SpaceExplorer mouse even in big assemblies.
Update: this problem has to do with the SW option dynamic highlight from graphics view.
When I switch it off the stuttering is gone! See also the attached snapshot from the 3dconnexion forum website.
According to them in the older 3dconnexion drivers the dynamic highlight option was automatically switched off. But in the newer drivers they leave this up the user.
Thanks! That seems to do the trick. Just changed the setting and it appears to be much, much more smooth. I also updated the driver for my device. Great solution and thanks for posting.
