Support for the Falcon haptic device is provided by the Force Dimension drivers.

On Windows, please download the latest drivers from the Force Dimension support website: www.forcedimension.com/support/download

If you were previously using the Novint drivers, please carefully follow these instructions:

  • Uninstall all software provided by Novint. Carefully follow all instructions that may be displayed on the screen during uninstallation.
  • Download and install the Force Dimension drivers for your Windows architecture (32- or 64-bit) from the Force Dimension website.
  • Restart your computer.
  • Connect your Falcon haptic device.

  • If the Falcon device is not detected, you will probably have to manually force the Force Dimension driver to be installed on the Falcon device. Please follow these instructions:

  • Control Panel -> System -> Device Manager
  • Select "Falcon" device
  • Select thumbnail "Driver"
  • Select "update driver"
  • Select "Browse my computer for drivers"
  • Select "Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer"
  • Choose the latest driver (Force Dimension), et voila!

    Hi,

    I followed the above instructions but I am unable to interface Novint Falcion with chai3D.
    I am able to play sample games provided by novint and able to feel the feed back.

    1. I followed the instructions
    www.chai3d.org/download/doc/html/wrapper-overview.html (Novint Technologies)

    2. After installing - initiated "Haptic Init"-> Clicked on Initialize button (It started to vibrate a bit after clicking on Initialize button)

    3. Then i Opened bin folder(in chai3D) and tried to run "application.exe" files

    I also tried to build all the files after connecting the Falcon device to computer . It didn't work too.

    Do i need to include any libraries in the program/code ? or Do i need to initialize any other software's ?

    Thanks

    Your drivers seems to have been installed correctly.

    To calibrate the Falcon haptic device, please do not use HapticInit, but instead, simply run any CHAI3D example and push the handle towards the back of its workspace.

    Please note that any CHAI3D application will not detect the device if another application such as HapticInit is already running.

    is Novint Falcon supported in the latest version of Chai 3D 3.2.0? can we detect the falcon device through Force dimension driver?
