Joystick in Solidworks

I do mainly drawing work so don't see the need for the spaceball and
was wondering if anyone has successfully used a joystick or something
similar to control solidworks? I think one of those joysticks with the
8 way joypads on top and a bunch of programmable buttons would work
really well. I know stickworks used to be out there but I can't find
in anymore. Does anyone have any ideas?

I remember a prog called "stickworks" (Diving Magpie? NHCad?). That was back in '97 or '98, never tried it.

That was Divng Magpie. Trevor D'Arcy Evans (hope I spelled that right) was the one behind that, and he works for SW now in API support. I can't find any trace of it on Google, and I don't have a copy lying around. I never got it working because of OS compatability problems.

I seem to remember some people using the Microsoft Sidewinder Strategic Commander thing in the past - I don't know if it's still available though!
