Problem defining a pick and place operation

Creator
Creator

Hi,

I'm trying to do a simple PnP operation, by placing the lid on the box shown in the picture. For some reason, I cannot press OK when defining the pick and place operation. 

 

I've defined the tool as a gripper, see PnP problem 2.

 

When I try to create a generic operation, and define the gripper as the tool, I get the message that the object is invalid (PnP problem 3).

 

Any suggestions? 

 

Thanks!

Hi,

 

it looks like the gripper is created as robot (there is toolframe and baseframe).

I assume if you delete them, the gripper will be created as regular machanism (not as robot) it should work.

 

I recommend not to select too many gripping entities: just select the entity which is going to collide with the object bo be gripped.

 

best regards

Bernard
