I'm new in Process simulate and I'm sure it is a stupid question, but I'm having some troubles importing a kuka robot saved in .stp extension.
I have the Process simulate standalone software, but when i try to import the CAD it doesn't work and asks me to check if CAD translator is correctly intalled.
Is CAD translator an external software? Or should it be intalled automatically together with Process Simulate Standalone?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Yes, it´s an external software.
It´s located on the installation disk 2 or on Siemens ftp server
Thank you for your answer. Actually I didn't know, as I said before I'm new on this software and any advice is welcome.
Can you just explain better what you mean with "upgradetoversion -comp robotname.co -co2jt"? How can I do that?
I downloaded a robot from the website and it is composed by many sufolders with .co extension, how can i get a .cojt from that?
sorry. Of course there is a GUI for it.
I'm just stuck in the commandline times...
Upgradetoversion upgrades components from older versions.
The .co folders are Robcad-components.
But the switch '-co2jt' create .cojt-folder next to the .co folder.
This one you can insert into your PS-study.
When you have a .cojt with a JT-file inside:
If you have access to the GTAC-download-server, you will find robots from all vendors under
Tecnomatix Products/Product Updates/Robot Models
Thank you Guido for the detailed answer,
I have created the .cojt folders next to the .co ones. Theni have collected them in one folder under the library path.
I have one last (i hope) problem, where is the "define component type" button? Because I'm using the 11.1TR3 Versdion and i'm doing:
Modeling-->Create Part/resource-->new resource-->robot
Modeling-->Insert from file-->my .cojt
And PS displays the error" the type of the component is not defined"
Where can I find that button? I tried to find it with the help but with no results.
for one time use, just type CTRL+F and type in "define"+Enter
Or drag the button from Tools>Customize>Administrative Tools
e.g. to File>Project Management
