Optimal navigation with a 3D mouse


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,


I work in a company which has created a 3D mouse designed for graphic designers and 3D designers. I found this video and I think using our mouse with video games would be great, I would like to know your opinion on the subject.

Our mouse is called "Lexip 3D", it has a joystick and a tilt allowing movements in 3 dimensions on 6 axes. Companies like Dassault Systems have had the opportunity to work with.


Today, the mouse always targets professionals but I would like to present some mouse’s configurations on video games to my superiors to propose the development of a Lexip gaming mouse. I had the opportunity to do some tests on your game:



You can set the tilt, the joystick, the buttons as well as the classic keys of the mouse.


As regular players, what do you think of our mouse?
Would it be interesting for Star Citizen (or other space games)?
Do you have any configuration ideas?


Thanks for your time !

The mouse itself is interesting, and has gaming applications if accurate and well made.

The state of the company has me wondering.  The homepage http://www.lexip.fr/ just shows a single image and according to archive.org, was offline from 2012 to 2015.  I wouldn't hold my breath for quality support.

The mouse was retailed before windows 10 and with no driver site, there's no way of knowing how to find updated drivers.

I wouldn't vouch for it... I've heard of lexip around about 2012-13 and the company has been since dead (as @GRIZZ noted)...  clearly, there's a reason for it.....

Heres a video i found for it

Take what you will from it but I don't think it will be great by any means. You can see in the above video when he demonstrates the mouse's tilt it looks as if his hand is straining to keep the angle/tilt..... a no-go for precision... the only real pro for it is it has a joystick attached to it that's about it


Also good luck finding drivers/updates/stock

Might be a good idea for CAD 3D modeling .... not so much gaming

@GRIZZwe don‘t sell this product anymore but we are working on a new basis for our professional target. That's why the website was offline but I think the comeback of our pro version would be for 2018 (with a good website, drivers and support).

@xKiLlFrEnZyx: yes, we sold 500 Lexip around 2013 then we stopped. Now we're working on a comeback for the pro version but I want to add a gaming version (it would be so great!)

Yeah, I know that video, it's the one who convinces me that the mouse would be great for gaming.

Normally, the mouse is as any other mouse, it will not create more stress than another. 

Would you think it would be interesting without the tilt ?

      ....but I went ahead and logged out in the Aurora-Pathfinder I rented while doing a mission on Daymar (Sensitive Shipment) and now I think it's why I cannot get back into the game. Even when I managed to get the game loading, it still crashes back to the title screen after 10-15-20 minutes of loading. Would anybody like to advise me on how to go about fixing this?

      Not that I can find the exact information anywhere in my account, I believe I backed this game at the tier of Space Marshall (Hence my username!) if there is or was such a tier sometime in 2013, I think and purchased the Anvil F7C-S Ghost Hornet package. I came here looking for help because, I cannot currently get my game going. I have had numerous problems trying to launch the game and right now it just keeps crashing to the title menu. Which is something the game hasn't done before the 3.14 patch. I used to have no problems launching the game. Although I have always had game crashes. I 'd also like to know if there is a Free Flight Event this weekend and if so, then maybe that's why I can't get in, because every server is full.  Perhaps...,but I'm also looking for the official Star Citizen forums when I found this one. Please give me link to that one if you can.

      Good morning,
      I am Lucius_Siccius founder and head diplomat for MORTEM SOLIS.
      We founded this organization seeing the necessity of having long lasting relationships with fellow like minded relationships within Star Citizen. The ships, the events, streams and all the flair are great but we believe the game will be won in boardrooms and around negotiation tables. We all are experienced Star Citizen players that have been part of the development of the game for quite some time now, and created this organization taking the best of our experiences with previous groups we were part of before. And adding that outreach we think is very much needed for groups to thrive truly in the game.
      Fortunately even though we just started our efforts a little over a week ago, we have a very solid relationship with organizations, content creators, developers & even sponsors like GameGlass and others that are at your disposal as well if you think that they will benefit the advancement of our diplomatic relationship. 
      Is a pleasure meeting you, to be part of this awesome site and to be considered as a valuable part of your efforts. Our doors are open for ambassadors to join our server and chat about future instances in which we can collaborate and have fun in the 'verse.
      Please be safe out there, and hope to chat soon.
