I have a situation that demands the TCP change in Process Simulate
I have created a path using tcpX. Now customer wants me to modify the TCP in terms of orientation and to a different location on the gripper. New tcp is, tcpY.
I have 8 robots each has plenty of handling paths for 3 variants.
Right now Im following the conventional way like, going to each and every location of the path and updating the location with new TCP tcpY.
Could anyone suggest if there is a better way to modify the tcpX to tcpY.
I think there should be a better way since I have done similar kind of modifications on Delmia using Macros.
Thanks in Advance.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Use **bleep**location by TCP offset found in the OLP tools.
Shift locations by TCP offset button
It is a function in the OLP tools
1. Switch on computer(only joking) but PC needs to be on!
2. Right click on the upper area menu areas in PS. You should see Customize or customize the ribbon depending on setup.
3.Next see on All commands are active then search for Shift Locations by TCP Offset.
4.Now you should be able to drag and drop or move to a TAB depending on your setup.
Make sure OLP Tools are install else you will not find it.
You need to download it from the Siemens PLM download site.
With the OLP tools you will get Shift Locations by TCP offset which shift between TCP's for the complete operation in just a few clicks!!!
