I'm a new user of process simulate and have the following question. I downloaded a robot model from ABB's webpage in Robcad format. I want to import this model inte PS and tried the "Upgrade CO to version" but I couldn't get it to work. Nothing at all happened when I used the software, no changes to the .CO file, no JT-file or log-file was created. Can someone please give me some instructions how to proceed!!!!
It is likely that this robot model is a Robcad Supercomponent (i.e. includes sub components). in this case you need to have all subcomponents and set properly the library root in the upgradeToComponent dialog.
this is not a supercomponent. I think the problem is that you did not install CAD Setup and you are missing some software elements.
Is it possible for you to be more specific? I have installed the CAD-translators from CD2, is there something more that has be there to get it work?
Try to use command line version directly:
upgradetoversion -comp "full path to your .co" -co2jt
upgradetoversion -comp "D:\technomatix\Robot_models\ABB\irb6_5.co" -co2jt
I think you robot in .co file is an older robcad model.
Unfortunately, there is no .info file included in the .co.
But I think it is an older model.
In this case you need to upgrade to component first.
The command is upgrade_to_version -comp >> this is only available if Robcad is installed on your machine.
