I like to animate the robot in the model I have published on the very first post.
The replies I received til now don't help me out.
Now I wait for the help of Siemens in Belgium. I forwarded my simple examples to a contact technician.
I hope he can show me how to animate an robot created in NX11.
Basically speaking everything you need is provided
by the Plant Simulation SW.
For details please read "Functions for Accessing 3D objects".
For getting the Fanuc robot axises moving, you have to split
them into individual animation objects( ax1 ..ax6) to properly address and animate/rotate them.
If you want to go in to more detail. e.g. inverse kinematics
you should have good knowledge in geometry and kinematics.
Last but not least knowing how to work with quaternions will simplify all.
The models shown are based on this background knowledge plus
a (self) developed quaternion arithmetics library which is most helpful.
Explaining all these details in this forum would definitely overload the forum
as it is still - to my understanding - a DES forum and not a course for robot kinematics.
I have TX V13.1, the example is in V13.2.
I already asked out IT to upgrade my station with the latest version, I guess 14.0.
It took weeks to get any response. At that moment I cancel the request as I did't want anybody to touch my station.
I had to finish a first version or our model for show purpose in Dec 2017.
What is a good version to upgrade to ?
I have initiated a software upgrade request to 14.0 for my workstation. This will probably not be quick.
I downloaded and run the attached exe, but I am not sure what I shall see/learn here.
Sure, I can watch it moving, but I cannot see how the animation is made.
I can not not open the 3D properties, only the 3D graphic structure.
sorry but this post does not help, I don't understand it from the replys.
I can not open the example to go through it and try to understand as I have to upgrade my station to 14.0 first.
It's the first time I try to import a robot generated in NX11.
So I have to start from basics how to get the arm moving.
I am able to setup MU animation and robot arm animation using the existing TX robot.
You are right.
As stated before, you should work through the Plant SImulation 3D basics provided in the help.
This will then put you on a level to better understand the forum posts about 3D simulation.
and fill the waiting time until v14 installation.
