Device compilation failed

Creator

Hello everybody,

 

I am currently on Process Simulate Standalone – eMServer compatible 14.0.

When I edited the links to my gripper and whanted to close the kinematics editor I got the error "Device compilation failed. Do you wish to close the Kinematics Editor?"

 

What could be the cause of this error?image.png

Your layout seems ok.

 

But it looks like you added a toolframe!? (At least usually the tool-frame-button shouldn't be greyed)

The tool-/baseframe-buttons within the Kinematics Editor are to be used for inverse kinematics only.

If you have any old toolframes (special icon) in your component, remove them from the tree.

 

To define your tool as gripper, you need to:

  1. define the kinematics
  2. use "Modelling>>Tool Definition" to set your TCPF and the gripping entities

Thank you for your answer.

 

I did not find anything more to add in the Kinematics editor and when I tried to open the "Tool Definition" I got the following message.

I did not find a way to fix the tool except deleting it and then drag and drop the cojt file in to the graphic window. Now it works as expected.

 

I am used to working on the eM-server version of Prosess Simulate.

One thing that annoys me with the stand alone version is that I can't bring upp the Properties pannel on resources in my study and I can't use the Navigation Tree. Is that how it isa supposed to be or is my verion bugged?

If you would have expanded all your links, you would have probably found a frame like below. Underneath one of the links.

Unlike the standard-frame they have this green key on it.

Here you get into trouble if the component has only a tool-frame, but no base-frame.

 

Both the Properties-panel and the Navigation-Tree are views on the eMServer-data.

Of course in Standalone, both are not available.

But you can start PS-eMServer, select the project and then load your .psz-file.

1. now you can access the properties

2. you can update the eMServer-data with the .psz-data
