I'm trying to import robot's available geometry from native CAD file format (IGS, STP).
I can import CAD assemblies as "Robot" (File conversion > Base class-resource & Component class-Robot).
After that I get flexible manipulators' model in object tree browser.
But the geometry is unavailable in Robotics tab.
Is it possible to design robots' virtual model using CAD geometries? How to achieve it?
Solved! Go to Solution.
There are two alternatives to get a "working" robot model:
Which robot model you're working with? ABB, for example, provide most of their robot models at their web site as .co. Look at ABB Download Center web page.
If the robot properties is not showing up it's possible you did not define inverse kinematics. Make sure you have a baseframe and toolframe.
I loaded your robot and successfully added the base and tool frames so that RobotExpert interperet it as a robot.
