Update on the 3dConnexion Space Navigator issue for Revit.

I just received this from one of my clients. Apparently, it takes 100 people doing an email carpet bomb to get a response. I don't know what to do know but ask each of you to contact your reseller and ask them to go up the chain at Autodesk. From this email, it's clear that the mouseball is in Autodesk's court. If they can make a wireless rotating cube, you'd think they could get a mouse to work with Revit. The 3dconnexion mice work with Inventor, Navisworks and Vectorworks (Vectorworks, thanks for sending me a copy of your software. That was very sweet and amusing of you to do since seeing your name in a Revit blog.)

Does anyone have any ideas? Did anyone who emailed Autodesk get a response? Is anyone at Autodesk reading this? I've just sent an email to a senior VP at Autodesk and I'm hoping he'll start asking some questions about this and get things moving.

Here's the 3dconnexion response. Thank you Tim for the response. Maybe you could tell us who you've tried to work with at Autodesk to solve this problem.

Thanks for your interest.

We work closely with Autodesk but there is currently no commitment to provide support for Revit. Further, the API does not have all the capability that we need so we could do the work ourselves.

Please let Autodesk know of your request. They take customer requests very seriously.

Instead of creating something that is fun, please make someting that is usefull. Like the drivers for revit to work with the spacenavigator from 3dconnexion..

Thank you for the feedback. I will pass this on to the Revit team.
