Is there a possibility to manipulate the ext. axes value for several axes simultaneously?
I have 5 ext. axes and about 50 different locations.
I need to change the ext. axis value for each location from 180 to -180.
Actually have to use "set external axis value" command to change the value, but for each location individually. This is very time consuming.
What I am looking for is the function, which is already implemented in Robcad. The function in Robcad is "Update ext. axis value"
Is maybe something like this already implemented in Process Simulate and if not, are there any plans to implement it.
Solved! Go to Solution.
In OlpTool, you have SmoothExternals.
Thanks for your information, but with this function i have not the effect I expect.
In this case, to do everything by hand is the better way.
You could change the first and last location of your path from -180 to +180 and then apply Smooth Externals with "overwrite existing externals" = true. All inbetween locations will then get +180 (as they will be smoothed between +180 and.. +180).
So I have tested the function again by reference to your information.
For external axes (uncoupled from robot) everything works fine.
For external axes of the robot it does not work 100% correct but it is better then nothing.
Thanks for your support.
external axes uncoupled from robot: This is the positionier with two axes
external axes of the robot: this are three linear axes system like a gantry, and at the third linear axis a normal robot with six axes is mounted suspended.
The function works correct for the positioner but not for the robot with its three linear axis.
