What is the command for giving kinematics for supercomponent to create different poses?

Hi,

 

In PS you have "Kinematics Editor" and "Pose Editor" to do this.

It is possible for one component...I think

What If there are several units of perticular components and each units have individual kinematics.

Please see the attachment showing different units of single component.

In this case you should have an "Equipment Prototype" as parent for all your clamps.

From your structure in Object Tree put all clamps under "FIXTURE" into an "EP".

 

You can open the Kinematics Editor for the EP as well.

On EP selected you can also open the Pose Editor and you can select the poses for each clamp.

So you can simply build the different steps of you fixture.

Dear Patrick,

 

Thank you for your information.

I have tried as per your instructions but Pose Editor option is not activated for EP.

See the attachment

 

Thanks in advance

You need a dummy kinematics inside your EP.

Custom create two links and a joint between.

 

As long as this is not available the EP is not interpreted as device.

Hello 

 

can you please tell me the advantage of EP

Hi,

 

It depends on what you want to do.

Robot with Fupa (known as Supercomponent in Robcad):

 

Robot vendor provides its robot model with seperate fupa (Leoni, Kuka own dresspack etc.)

The EP is more or less a container and you put all the robot and fupa inside.

If you want to load this robot with fupa, you only need to load the EP from Lib.

 

When you have fixture with different clamps:

Each clamp is its own resource, if you create poses, you don´t need to create poses for each clamp you create the poses directly on EP level.

 

These are only two advantages. Just play a bit with it.

Hello Patrick,

Thank you for quick response.

I have one more query regarding Pack&Go and .psz with library components. Are they for same purpose or any other difference between these two different commands?
