I contacted 3DConnexion a couple of years ago when I was searching for a wireless volume control. It's designed for 3D drawing and quite expensive, They didn't think it would work with JRiver, although they said they would forward my enquiry to their development team. I haven't heard anything since (not that I really expected to). It's a nice looking unit.
I have one of these, although I use it for the occasional game and not for CAD.
It's probably not what people in this thread are looking for because it doesn't actually spin like a knob. It's 6 axis joystick that be twisted, tilted, pushed down, pulled up, slid side to side, and front to back.
The included software only has presets for various CAD programs but it can be programed for anything. The downside is that the GUI for programming it is so basic as to be useless. To get it to do anything that's not built in you will need to manually edit its XML configuration files. This is a huge pain, but does work in the end.
I would not recommend it to casual users.
