SpacePilot

RBC9, looks like you have a great program here. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to test it out because I have a SpacePilot. Has there been any more work done towards making your driver compatible? I've tried the Fadetoblack version, but that doesn't work. Thanks.

Check out your config.pro and make sure you don't have the following option:

spin_rate_zoom_sensitive yes

This setting lowers the spin setting the more you zoom in. I usually find it useful, but if you zoom in to very small features it will slow down the spin rate considerably.

In the 3Dconnexion Control Panel (the generic one, not any program specific dialog boxes) go to the Advanced Settings tab. There you'll find sliders to control the sensitivity and direction of each axis.

Detailed function list for Pro Engineer plug-in

Is there any documentation listing all the functions available in the Pro Engineer plug-in? There look to be several hundred functions, and they all have very short names with no descriptions. Sometimes I see 4 or 5 functions listed next to each other, all with the same name. It's also difficult to ...

I just recently received the spacepilot, and it's had this behavior since the beginning. I'll try contacting support. Thanks.

SpacePilot L R F T buttons loose or unresponsive

My L, R, T, and F buttons are not very responsive. I have to press them relatively hard to get them to work. Specifically, pushing any of them up till the point of tactile feedback (the click) does nothing. I must push them at least twice as hard to get the button to actuate. This leads to me pushin...

I'm glad Autohotkey was useful. It's saved me a lot of trouble on many occassions. Now and then I'll run into a repetitive action in ProE that requires the same exact on 50 dwg/prt files. With Autohotkey it's just a matter of recording the action and mapping it to a keyboard shortcut.

Looks like I can fix the issue by tweaking a registry entry for deadband. I like it when there's a simple solution.

Rbird, I agree with you that the threshold & precision settings should be in the GUI. However, in the mean time, maybe you could just distribute a .reg file that accomplishes the same changes without requiring access to regedit. Of course this is assuming your users even have permission to execute ....

I think that may have solved my "problem". Turns out my hand on the knob was pushing it juuuuust enough to make the 3Dx driver react. Even though I couldn't see anything moving, as soon as I moved my hand away I could click on anything. It's going to take a little doing for me to remember to not cli...

This shouldn't be necessary, but try plugging it into a different usb port.

Pro Engineer VERY slow when using SpacePilot

I just started using my SpacePilot and am suffering from severe slowdowns in Pro Engineer. I have version 3.1.8 of the software installed with only 3DxWare and the 3DxProEngineer plugin. I have Pro Engineer Wildfire 3.0 M060. Whenever the driver is active I can manipulate the model in the graphics a...

Tonny, Assuming you're using windows, look into using AutoHotkey. It is a versatile free keyboard mapping and macro utility. Specifically it's able to map any keyboard button (or button combination) to a mouse click. This would allow you to achieve what your looking for by using the following proced...

I have version 3.1.8 of the software installed with only 3DxWare and the 3DxProEngineer plugin along with Wildfire 3.0 M060. Whenever the driver is active I can manipulate the model in ...
