Re: Create/Import PickandPlace Robot from External Source (NX)

Hi,

 

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.

 

Regards

Marco

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.

About structuring and addressing the robot axis

Here's an example you can use as template.

Hi,

 

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 ?

 

 

Kind regards

Marco

Probably best is the latest(e.g v14) as you won't have issues to

 

load models designed  with other versions.

 

Meanwhile find attached the pack & go version ( rename the file from ed01.tiff to ed01.exe )

Hi,

 

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.

 

Kind regards

Marco

Hi,

 

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.

 

 

Kind regards

Marco

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.
