Custom SteamVR Icons For Pimax Headsets

SteamVR Icons for Pimax Headsets



  1. Download the archive.
  2. Extract the contents of the archive and copy the icons folder to C:\Program Files\Pimax\SteamVRSupport\drivers\aapvr\resources, overwriting files when requested.

It is recommended to make a backup of the icons folder before installing to revert back to the default icons in the event of future PiTool updates causing issues.


@Alex.liu. Could You, with @Genesis’ permission of course, include these icons in upcoming PiTool releases?


That would be awesome!
Thanks @Genesis!

Here is Custom Sword Controller Icon.pack for SteamVR to go with Genesis’ Pimax hmd or used standalone.

So The pimax swords icons looked like crap, it was green, both sides were the right controller & for some reason pimax forgot to make some of the icons transparent lol,

So i made an icon pack for SteamVR that fixes some stuff, but in purple/blue instead of the traditional color pallete, I will make a new pack when i have some more time in the traditional Valve Index color gradient

This fixes the transparency on some of the icons, recolors all of them from the green to a gradient & displays Left / Right controller icons correctly instead of just righthand icons

Preview of the new icons

Also available within the folder named “rendermodels” is a recolor for the 3D render models, from gray to a deep blue.

Here’s how it looks like: Left - New / Right - Old

Here’s the link to download these replacers,

Just extract the contents of ‘Swords_iconFix_Purple.rar’ into the following path & replace the existing files (Make sure to create a backup copy if you ever decide to undo these changes):

‘C:\Program Files\Pimax\SteamVRSupport\drivers\aapvr’

Restart SteamVR to apply the changes.

The controllers + icons should display the new ones. The HMD icon is not included, but is available in this OpenMR post by Genesis

@PimaxQuorra & @hammerhead_gal you might want to discuss with Team and this user about including and using these Sword Controller icons for SteamVR
