Spacemouse input in Isaac SIM (and other omniverse apps)

There doesn’t appear to be any out of the box way to enable spacemouse input in Isaac sim. Please let me know how the view-port position can be controlled from python(or in any other programmable way that doesn’t clash with interactive use) so I can implement my own. I’m on Linux platform using spacenavd as a driver for my 3dconnexion space mouse.

Spacenavd exposes a socket python code can receive input events from, then the script could control view port rotate/translate commands in Isaac sim. Please let me know if a view-port control API exists?

Hi - Sorry for the delay in the response. Let us know if you still having this issue with the latest Isaac Sim 2022.2.1 release.

Hi, I’m having this issue as well. How does one enable 3DConnexion spacemouse input for the viewport in Isaac sim? -Thx

@brettpac i believe they are currently looking into it:

that said, it was in the context of the Composer app, so not sure if it applies to Issac Sim as well

It is the same thing as USD Composer for Isaac Sim also.

So how do I get it to work?

if i were to read between the lines…since there’s no support for the spacemouse in Composer at this time, it’s currently not supported in Isaac Sim either.
