How to fix Mastercam views for SpacePilot PRO

spp_keys_quick3
3Dconnexion do not write any patches for Mastercam it is the other way around, so with the new SpacePilot PRO on the Market less than a week you are going to find you are missing bottom, back and left view on you SpacePilot PRO. Hopefully it will be taken care of with the next Mastercam upgrade, but until then why don’t we just fix it ourselves.

key-mapping1
In Mastercam go to Settings => Key Mapping

key-mapping2
Under (1) Category select View Manipulation => (2) click bottom view => and by default (3) would be Alt+4
click (2) and check that back is Alt+3 and left is Alt+6 (all default settings)

key-mapping3
Push the menu button on your SpacePilot PRO and click “Custom functions”

key-mapping4
Click (1) New => Type (2) function name “Mastercam Bottom” => (3) Hold down “Alt” Key and pres “4” => Press (4) Save.

key-mapping5
Press New again and repeat last instructions for the last 2 views.

key-mapping6
Push the menu button on your SpacePilot PRO and press the drop down menu for the “B” button and select “Mastercam Bottom”.

key-mapping7
Repeat for the “L” and the “Bk” drop down menu.

key-mapping8
Last, Do Not Forget to Save.

So now, no need to wait for next Mastercam release, right? ;-)

  • Jeff,
    The mapping stay saved in MastercamX3, but in Solidworks it is useless. Actually I am posting a re-review tomorrow with links to your blog in regards to this matter, Thank you :-)
