Two typos for the price of one. I meant "Any thoughts, 3Dx ?"

Robert, 3Dx's Custom Functions are limited to recording keyboard input. So, in order to use your steps A-E I would have to map a keyboard shortcut to every macro I want to assign to a SpacePilot button. I suppose this is possible, but it's also a tedious and unnecessary step that was not necessary p...

Andrei, Thanks for attempting to help, but your method does not work. 1) I'm not looking to use a built-in function like Sketch. I want access to custom macros that I've written for SW. If it's a built-in SW function I can probably access it through existing menus. 2) Your method as written no longe...

What happened to my SolidWorks macros?

Previous to version 2.13.0 of the SolidWorks add-in (3DxWare 3.7.16), I was able to assign custom macros to my SpacePilot's buttons. This was accomplished by creating buttons for these macros on an unused toolbar (e.g. the Screen Capture toolbar). The macros attached to those buttons could then be a...

SolidWorks Sketch Configuration

Having an automatic configuration for part/assembly/drawing is great, but the package isn't complete without a separate configuration for sketching. I know I can setup a secondary configuration with all my sketch commands, but it's not as convenient as having the 3Dx software sense when I've entered...

I'm not designing aero or auto structures anytime soon, so using CATIA is out for now. I don't know why it's so hard getting software enhanced around here. If I had the source code for the SW addin I'd add the features myself. Unfortunately, I don't have the time to code a full blown addin myself. H...

I already use Auto Rotation Center, and it doesn't have the effect that its name implies. It seems to just change the rotation center to the model's geometric center. Working with small portions of a model is not any easier with the option enabled.

SolidWorks Rotation Center

When using the mouse to rotate the view in SolidWorks 2009 the center of rotation is automatically the center of the screen when the rotation begins. This is very intuitive and allows one to work on a small section of an assembly without the components floating off into space due to a rotation about...

Well, that's unfortunate. Obviously, I'd prefer not to clutter my toolbar with buttons I'll never use, but I guess it's a workable alternative solution. Hopefully you work things out with SolidWorks to regain access to their menu structure/commands. In the meantime for anyone else who had mapped a b...

Thanks for the suggestion, Robert. Unfortunately, the Definition command is not listed in the Customize dialog. At best, I could write a macro that replicates the behavior of Edit Definition, but it's unfortunate that I would have to do that when the functionality was already there in a previous ver...

SolidWorks 2009: Missing SpacePilot button commands

I just upgraded to SolidWorks 2009 from 2007. In 2007 I had one of my SpacePilot buttons mapped to "Definition...". After upgrading this button does nothing. I also can't find it in the button mapping dialog. I believe there used to be a branch of commands dedicated to the Edit menu that is no longe...

Translation1 is an object, not just a variable. So try putting "Set" in front of the assignment statement.

And the Sensor_Input event should read Sensor1_Input.

Greensheep,

The only difference I see between your my functional code and your non-functional code is the Device1.Connect line. Try removing the "Call" from that line.
