Have you added the Rail under Robot Properties - External Axis?
Select your location then Kinematics - Set External Axis Values.
yes the rails are all added. It doesn't work with "Set External Axis Values". These option only add the current railvalue to one point.
<Action Name="Create" LocationTypes="WELD" LocRange="ALL" Description="">
<AddLoc Name="Anfahrpunkt" RefLoc="Itself" Placed="Before" CopyAttachment="true" RelX="-10.0">
This is the Addloc-Command i use.
In the ActionRef I only set some parameters like speed etc. I think this is unnessecary for the railvalue.
Why does the new loaction (child) not take the railvalue from the Point behind? When the Refloc is "itself"??
You can set complex/dynamic parameter "Rail Value" within your path template action, with an explicit value.
However, I do not know if there is a mechanism to copy the implicit rail value from the reference location...
Ok, but thats not what I want. When I have 100+ weldpoints and create 2 locations to every weldpoint, I cant set the railvalue as an explicit value.
If theres a solution, please let me know !
In OlpTool package, you have a command called "Smooth Rail" that can be used to define rail values on several locations by smoothing the values across locations with explicit rail values.
Smooth Rail is ok, but not the perfect solution for this problem.
The problem with the external axis is, the axis is very impresicely. The optimum is so less movement on this axis as possible.
When I create a location before manually with the dialog, the term type and rail value is applied to the new location.
May I connect this feature to my PathTemplate?
you should use the "Copy external" attribute:
<AddLoc NameSuffix ="approach" Placed="before" RefLoc="itself" CopyAttachment ="true"
CopyExternals="true" RelZ="50" >
copy externals doesnt work....
And another problem is, I added an ActionRef command to the Addloc for changing the parameter like speed etc.. That doesnt work either!
That seems kinda strange to me.
Maybe the copy externals command doesnt work with my verison of PS? I got V10.1
Ok I solved the problem with the ActionRef.
The AddLoc Command was only for WELD, besides the ActionRef was only for VIA. I think the issue here is that the parent action LocRange is another than the child LocRange. Correct me if I'm wrong. Or is there another solution for it?
However, the copy Externals still doesnt work.
