Portal crane Mu Pickup

Hi Everybody, 

I have two questions regarding the usage of the portal crane and Storage area. 

1. Is it possible to set the "resting position" of the portal crane

2. In my model, i have my portal crane pickup mu's from the storage area and drop them off on a conveyor (trough a buffer). Is there a command which allows me to let my crane pickup a mu from the storage area, steer it to the conveyor, hover over it, and only on a different command let drop the mu's off at the conveyor? 

 

Thanks in advance! 

Greetings

1. insert a (dummy) object for the waiting position, then you can move the crane to this object

2. move the crane to the object (may be you need a drop point as a object, if the positioning is not working), lower the hook and move the MU using SimTalk move from the hook to the conveyor (see help moveHook, moveToObject)
