Problem with tool change

Dear Community Member,

 

I am working on a pick and place station right now. Now I faced a problem of tool change. 

 

In the attached model, I have two tools, P_tool1 and P_tool2.

What I want to achieve is that the S01_R02 station pick and place 10 parts with tool1 and then pick and place another 10 parts with tool2 and loop for 60 parts in total.

 

I created two carriers as two tools but I don't know how to let the S01_R02 pick the right carrier and load/drop carrier with load.

 

And I also anable to rotate the 3d icon of tool_1( the blue one) in the 3d view.

 

Thanks a lot for your help!

Wendy

Hello Wendy,

           For Pick and place robot, I think it's difficult to use gripper directly, but I think you can learn more 3D knowledge about animation and graphics showing, then you can swith the graphics for your demand.

          there is a lot of Tutorials in the community, and you can some here: https://community.plm.automation.siemens.com/t5/Plant-Simulation-Worldwide-User-Conference/Hands-on-...

Hello Wendy,
Thanks very much, and I have known that the pick-and-place robot object is so flexible.
