No matter which supported 3D Connexion device(s) you have connected to your computer you only need to do the following:
- Make sure your 3D Connexion device is connected to your computer.
- Start ARCHLine.XP.
That's it! You can start designing and navigating in your projects using your device.
Device settings / Customization
Default device settings are provided to you by 3D Connexion in collaboration with the ARCHLine.XP team based on which device(s) you have connected to provide the best default experience possible.
However, should you need any of the default device settings to be changed, feel free to open the "3D Connexion Properties" application and customize.
SpaceMouse® 3D mice and SpaceNavigator provide a uniquely natural and convenient navigation in the 3D space using its special round-shaped controller button. Please check the following quick reference about the default mapping of the controller button:

ARCHLine.XP provides a very wide range of supported commands that you can bind to specific customizable buttons of your device. To see the available command list, please open the "3D Connexion Properties" application and click on "Buttons".
Certain 3D Connexion devices come with a so called default "radial menu". In case you have a CadMouse for example you will see that an ARCHLine.XP specific radial menu appears right after you push the corresponding physical button on the device right "above" the wheel. The "ARCHLine.XP RM" radial menu looks like this:
The ARCHLine.XP radial menu offers a gesture based fast access to frequently used ARCHLine.XP commands. The radial menu can also be customized in the "3D Connexion Properties" application.
If your device is equipped with an LCD screen, you can use the corresponding shortcut buttons to execute application specific commands directly. This can be also customized in the "3D Connexion Properties" application if you click on "Buttons".
