3Dconnexion SpaceMouse not working in SU 2023 – Professional


Simply upgraded to the most recent model, solely to seek out my SpaceMouse is now not working (working nice in v2022). I’ve tried restarting, reinstalling the motive force (contemporary copy from 3Dconnexion’s web site), putting in plugins from the 3Dconnexion preferences panel. There’s nothing on the 3Dconnexion boards about this downside.

Anybody discovered a piece round for this?

I’d e mail them…I simply upgraded to ’23 and my 3D mouse works simply wonderful…

Prior to now I’ve needed to shut out SketchUp and restart a pair instances simply to get it to kick in…doesn’t occur fairly often but it surely DOES occur…

Do you occur to be engaged on a Mac?

I do – and have the identical concern. 3DConnexion wired SpaceMouse and and wi-fi SpaceMouse don’t work with Sketchup 2023.

I’m utilizing 3dxWare 10.7.4 (3493) and Firmware 4.36.

Dialogue field says ‘Software program is up-to-date’.

Their installer for Mac just isn’t but conscious of SU 2023 and received’t copy the extension information to the suitable place. I’ve posted on their website asking once they plan to repair it, however no reply to date.

You may get it working by manually copying the information from SU 2022.

They’re present in

MacIntosh HD/Library/Software Assist/SketchUp 2022/SketchUp/Plugins

You will want to repeat them to

MacIntosh HD/Library/Software Assist/SketchUp 2023/SketchUp/Plugins

If that folder doesn’t but exist, you have to to create it.

Edit: added the MacIntosh HD root to the paths above as a result of many customers aren’t conscious that’s what /Library means.


Simply one other thought, have you ever restarted the pc?

Hello slbaumgartner,

Sadly there isn’t a 3Dconnexion plugin in that folder, may it’s some place else? I checked in all of the earlier variations of SU and no 3DC information in any of the folders.

Hello Jim,

That was the very first thing I did.

I feel we’re in the identical boat, Apple Silicon M1.

In your display shot I see the usual su_xxx extensions that SketchUp itself all the time installs. This proves you’re looking on the unsuitable folder, as a result of SketchUp doesn’t set up something within the folder path I gave. It’s within the MacIntosh HD/Library, not your private ~/Library, which is what you confirmed.

I edited my earlier put up to make it clearer.

Discovered it! And it labored as well :tada:


Labored as described. Thanks.

I couldn’t discover it both till I proven hidden folders and information. Then I used to be in a position to copy from 2022 to 2023.

I’m attempting to comply with alongside to get 3D mouse to work in SUP23. On a Mac additionally. Oddly, I shouldn’t have a “Sketchup 2023” folder in app help. I’ve folders for SU variations from 2013 – 2022, however not 2023. I’ve stop and restarted each Sketchup and my laptop 3x’s and nonetheless no folder.

Hmmm… any ideas?

As I famous earlier, the folder for 2023 won’t exist but, wherein case you have to to create it earlier than doing the copy. As far as I do know, SketchUp itself doesn’t create it routinely.
