I am facing a strange behavior in the MCD, when I try to implement a pick-and-place concept.
The structure is very simple:
The spindle has a collision body, which can be activated and deactivated using the MCD coupling in SIMIT. The dummy tools are derived from an assembly, which has been multiplied eight times.
Each tool has two Collision Sensors to detect whether it connects to the magazine or to the spindle. For this purpose, I created three operations. (Connect to Magazine/Spindle/none)
The goal is, to activate the Collision Body in the spindle when the Z-axis reaches the correct position. Strangely, when I activate the Collision Body, the sensor does not seem to trigger, although the Collision Body is clearly in it.
When I leave the sensor area and enter again with an already activated Collision Body, the sensor triggers.
What am I doing wrong? (All sensors and Collision Bodies have the category 0)
Is it not possible to trigger sensors when a collision body is activated in it?
Thank you for your help,
Unfortunately, I am still struggling with this problem.
Meanwhile, I found out that if I toggle the Collision Body the Collision Sensor is not triggered. But if I toggle the Collision Sensor instead, the collision is detected as soon as the sensor is re-activated.
Is this a bug?
Thank you for your help!
