:-)

Looking at the SDK they provide, it looks possible. Its more about how much interest there is in having LightUp Player support this - rather than other features such as web browser plugins etc.

(I don't have a space navigator but do I understand that the SketchUp Extension they provide works with LIghtUp in Tourtool mode?)

Thank you Adam for the answer.

Believe Me Adam, Space navigator is really AMAZING!

I use this input device from almost 5 years... and now i can't work without it (especially with SU and with LU in Tourtool mode!!!)

I think that LightUp Player is perfect for presentations, because it load projects fast and without running SketchUp...
You can organize wonderfull presentations with a series of view, then fly trough the project smoothly and with extreme simplicity.

Work with Space navigator in one hand and mouse in the other, is very functional and can speed-up your work!
...Adam you should buy one! ;) (then you know how this change the way you work with 3D-soft and visualization).

These are my slogans:
SKETCHUP + SPACE NAVIGATOR = REAL TIME 3D DESIGN
LIGHTUP TOURTOOL + SPACE NAVIGATOR = REAL TIME 3D IMMERSIVE EXPERIENCE!!!

Still working on them to get a sample to experiment with - no joy yet. :-(

OK, got a sample to start building in support for it!

However, Apple in the wisdom seem to have really screwed the 3dconnexions SDK on Mac 10.7 (as well adding quite a few problems for LightUp WebPlayer). So its going to take some time..

Macintosh LightUp Player v2.6.5 now supports SpaceNavigator.

Still waiting on Logitech to release the SDK for updated Windows...
