how to simulate Jack folds the flaps of carton

Hi,

 

I'm using Process Simulate 14.0.

I want to simulate that Jack folds two of the flaps of carton.

But when I used attach event to attach Jack and lnk of carton, that was my result.

How can I simulate that Jack's arm/hand move to the moving flaps of carton, not the whole body?

 

Here is my kinematics editor for carton. lnk2 is the left flap. lnk3 is the right one.

Thank you in advance.

Hi Elisha,

 

Using the "Task Simulation Builder" this is not (yet) possible.
This is something that is likely to be adressed in a future release.

 

For now - it would need to be modeled using the "old" human operations.

See the attached video showing something similar to what you want to do:

Create the initial grasp posture.
Create two "grip frames", one for each hand.
Depending on how the kinematic device is modeled, this step may not be required.
- In my simple case, it would have worked without these frames.


Attach the grip frames so that they move with the device.
Create a Huamn Event
In the event add one grasp relation for each hand to the grip frames (optionally directly to the object).

You can also specify some "constraints", e.g in this case I lock the torso.

 

I hope this helps Smiley Happy

Hi Pelle, 

 

thank you for your helping, but I can't watch your video.

I tried with a lot of devices to watch this video, but it didn't work  and I became an error "Invalid Authorization Respone". It is strange, because I can watch other videos of you.

 

Best regards

Hi Pelle,

 

I read your guide and  did what you said, it worked perfectly (took time without video Smiley Wink).

But I have another problem. After the folding Jack's hands still grasp the carton (the kinematics components are colored pink). How can Jack ungrasp the carton?

 

Best regards

Hi again Elisha, 

 

Sorry about the video - not sure what the problem is Smiley Sad

I'll try uploading again.

 

Happy to hear you were able to get it working following just the description!

 

In order to release the flap, create another human event.

This time the Grasp should be set to "Release":
