Hello 3D Connexion,

Is there any word from the company regarding timing for USB-C support? It sounds like everybody is anxious to here the companies timing and and plans.

I love 3DConnexion products but unfortunately my last mouse was lost when a hotel lost my luggage. The lack of USB-C is making me seriously consider the MX Master 3. I'm happy to wait but only if the company put some information out as to how long I'd be waiting.

I'm sitting her with my brand new $4k MacBook Pro running Catalina ... and wondering why I need to add a USB-C adapter to get my mouse to work? 3D Connexion could have seen this coming. The first post to this thread was back in 2017.

Even the MX Master 3 has an USB-A wireless adapter together with a Bluetooth connection.

There’s probably a technical limitation in micro-USB and USB-C that makes impossible to build wireless adapters. I’m wondering if Bluetooth LE, that is missing in 3D mouse, could achieve the same performance...

Just to add my vote: I am also hoping for a USB-C Universal Receiver. The SpaceMouse Pro Wireless is awesome and it could make a beautiful clean working environment. However having to constantly plug in the receiver with an adapter is really annoying. Please just offer a USB-C receiver for 20$ and ill give you my money.

Cheers

Hi guys,

I've upgraded my Spacemouse Enterprise, it has a combo Type-C and Type-A plug now. You can find the details of the process here:

There is also a much nicer and more general video made by DIY Perks (you can find the link in the description of my video) showing how to convert wireless receivers and basically upgrade any Type-A device to a Type-C.

Looks like 3dconnexion is not really interested in this topic, as offering a device with USB Type-C plug is not a big deal technically. Fortunately, we users can solve the issue by outselves ; )

You really don't need to do so, a simple USB type-C adapter/converter will do the job quickly for less than 0.2 US dollar.
