There is no solution yet. I did several tests with the developer of the plugin, but we had no chance. It seems that the root cause is a library that is used by the RawMouse plugin, which is not compatible anymore.

Is there a way to "flip" the controls?

 

Yes from the readme file:

https://github.com/smartavionics/RawMouse/blob/master/README.md

 

"scale scales the axis value. If you want to make the axis faster, increase the value. To slow the axis down, reduce the value. To flip the direction of movement, change the sign."

 

So to flip, just change + to - or vice versa.

    I found that the problem of pitch and roll being jumpy was fixed by clicking the left button on the space mouse and enabling pan/zoom and rotation in the advanced setting of the 3DConnexion popup! Buttery smooth now. Thank you Burtoogle!

    Hi burtoogle,

    many thanks for this wonderful plugin, finally adding SpaceMouse support into Cura! I can't understand why Ultimaker refuses to support these devices. I bought mine for about USD150 (with 20% student discount), so it isn't very cheap, but I think it's affordable even for hobbists community. And of course 3D mice are standard in profi CAD. Even FreeCAD (open-source freeware) already supports 3D mice.

    Again, thank you very much and good luck in all you do.

    Ales.

    I just started to use this and found the 3dmouse move opposite than expected. On a hunch I edited the config.json file and reversed the scale so that anything negative was positive and visa versa. Now it works great!

     

    
      "profiles" : {
        "spacemouse" : {
          "axes" : [
            { "offset": 0.0, "scale":  0.1, "threshold": 0.01, "target": "movx" },
            { "offset": 0.0, "scale":  100.0, "threshold": 1.0, "target": "zoom" },
            { "offset": 0.0, "scale":  0.1, "threshold": 0.01, "target": "movy" },
            { "offset": 0.0, "scale":  0.05 , "threshold": 0.01, "target": "rotpitch" },
            { "offset": 0.0, "scale":  0.05, "threshold": 0.01, "target": "rotroll" },
            { "offset": 0.0, "scale": -0.1, "threshold": 0.01, "target": "rotyaw" }

     

     

    Thank you for this. I installed RawMouse and could not get used to piloting around the object with the inverted controls I can move the object like it's in my hands as I usually do with other CAD software.

    Hi, I discovered this a few weeks ago and got it working perfectly in Cura 4.8, but after installing Cura 4.9.0 yesterday I can't get it to show as a plugin.  I followed the exact install steps I used last time, expanding the folder in the plugins folder.  Does 4.9.0 do something to block RawMouse, or am I missing something?

    There is a new version for Cura 4.9 which should work.

    Can not get it to work on 4.9.1, any idea?
     
    First tried to copy old one from 4.8.0, but nahh.
    Then tried to download new version, but still nothing..
    Tried to put in in both "Program Files\Ultimaker Cura 4.9.1\plugins",
    and in the config folder "Users\xxxxx\AppData\Roaming\cura\4.9\plugins",
    But guess what, still nothing. Not showing up under the plugins in Cura at all. Wierd..

    Starting with Cura 4.9 you need to update the plugin to version 1.1.0.

    A HUGE thank you to the creator for this one. Not having 3dConnexion support has been a detracting factor to using Cura for me. I have been using PrusaSlicer as it has the support.

     

    I just tested the 4.9 beta version of the plugin in 4.10 and it works a treat. I only had to invert the scale on all the axes for the directions to work in the way the 3dConnexion demo moves parts (as is used in most CAD packages).

    Got this to work a treat, thanks for creating. 👍

     

    On a side note, I can only get this to work on "Dongle", when I plug in the mouse for charging, the plug in stops working.....any ideas?

     

    Cura 4.10.0

     

    3DConnexion version versions: 3DxWare 10.7.4.3350, 3DxWinCore 17.7.4.18504

    Can confirm that it works for me on Cura 4.11.0, just had to change the spacemouse axes scale values from negative to positive by deleting the "-" sign and didnt have to disable any drivers. Not getting buttons to work, but not a big worry for me. Using Spacemouse Enterprise.

     

    Update 9/10/21: Figured out the buttons for spacemouse enterprise, here is a mapping of the buttons I found correlating to the config.json button numbering.

     

    spacemouse enterprise : rawmouse
    menu : 1 
         (also opens menu for 3dxware)
    fit : 2
    top view : 3
    n/a : 4
    right view : 5
    front view : 6
    n/a : 7
    n/a : 8
    rotate view: 9
    n/a : 10
    iso 1 : 11
    n/a : 12
    1 : 13
    2 : 14
    3 : 15
    4 : 16
    didn't find any connection for buttons 17 and on
