NX MCD Capacitive sensor? Check material during simulation

Experimenter
Experimenter

Hi,

 

I have a question about Siemens MCD V12.

 

I have 2 blocks :

- First block = PVC

- Second block  = aluminum.

 

Those two blocks are on the same conveyor. I would like to separete them.

I would like to have an capacitive sensor.

Does someone know how to create that sensor in Siemens MCD?

Check the body at collision material?

 

Thanks in advance,

Hello Arnold,

One way that you can distinguish between different parts (materials) is in the Collision Body command. When you create the collision body for the PVC part set the Category value to 1, and then the set the aluminum part's Category to 2. You can then create separate Collision Sensors that only detect a specific Category by setting the Collision Sensor's Category to the corresponding part. With the Operation command, you can use the collision sensor's state to trigger different event based operations.

That solution worked for me. Thank you!

Hi,

 

I am new to Siemens NX MCD. Can you please share this file so I can look into it. I also have a question about sensing color of same material. Is it possible in Siemens NX MCD? Your help will be highly appreciated.

 

Thank you

@DEckhoff  Thank you so much and it surely is helpful. But the problem is I have the same material and different colors. I tried using category option and I am able to recognize based on color but pieces are not stacking on top of each other (As only same category materials collide with each other) and affecting the whole process. Is there any way around it?
