I had it plugged into a hub, after connecting directly into my iMac things are back to normal.

 

Hope the helps someone.

Out of curiosity do you like using the Space Mouse and do you find it to be more accurate than the basic Logitec M510?  What are the advantages that it has?  Do you use it in conjunction with the CAD mouse they sell?  

I have had a lot of issues lately with my mouse when I switched to the M705 which displayed some really bizarre behavior.

Andrew,

This is used simultaneously with a standard (non 3D mouse) it can not replace it.

With this, you can snap to a point, then drag a polyline while rotating your model. This blew me away when I first started using it all those years ago. I can't imagine modeling without it.

You can set it to manipulate your scene or an object.

I never had an issue with accuracy.

Sorry, never used the CAD mouse they offer.

 

Hope this helps,

Joe

I have had drifting occur. In my instance it is usually due to something accidentally resting against the mouse. I would also check that there is no crud in the mouse.

I have had something resting against the mouse, but not this time. How do you clear gunk from a space mouse, never really looked for a way to get into it?

Thanks,

Joe
