I made an iron (3D, format igs). I want use it like tool for my robot ABB (model parasolid downloaded from the ABB's website). I have two questions.
What's the steps for add the iron like tool to my robot?
Then I want add a third element, maybe a furniture, so, how can I integrate that's three elements (Iron, robot and furniture)?
I hope was clear.
In general the process is very much similar to the way you add fixtures and assembly tools to NX CAM.
There are training materials about building robots and using the system that you can access here. I'd recommend to start with those.
Hi. Trying to convert my Iron as a tool, I have a doubt. I don't know how to assign the trackpoint geometry for the solid tool.
About the Junctions I need help too. For specify mounting, I selected a point where is the red circle and for the specify tool tip, I selected a point where is the green circle. That's right?
It is hard to understand from the picture if it is right or wrong. basically the mounting junction is the point where the "Tool" is mounted to the robot flange. here you have to make sure that the frame alignment (X, Y and Z directions) fit the pocket at the end of J6. otherwise the tool will be mounted with angle to reality.
The Tool tip junction is the point tracking the tool path. it must be aligned with +X upwards (relative to the toolpath) and Y axis should fit the orientation in reality. this is esential to allow appropriate Tool Path base simulation. in the post configurator interaction you can replace the +X direction with +/- X/Z to fit the expected output.
Apart from the definition of assembly tool you also need the parametric tool definition. when you generate the base toolpath in NX CAM the parametric tool is considered.
All of these are described and escorted with step by step exercise in the training materials I recommended above, but those probably require registration.
