How can I use a 3Dconnexion mouse with Tekla Structures?

Answer

This article explains the steps required to set up a 3Dconnexion mouse so that it works with Tekla Structures.

First download the 3Dconnexion Device Installer from Tekla Warehouse here
  1. Uninstall the 3DConnexion native drivers
  2. Open Tekla Structures (the version in which you wish to use your 3D mouse)
  3. Open a model or create a new one
  4. Run the 3DConnexionInstaller_<version>.exe that you downloaded from Tekla Warehouse. Copy it directly to the root of C:\ and run it as administrator
  5. Shut down and restart Tekla Structures. Now try using the 3Dconnexion mouse in any model you open.
