I'm trying to define a tool that I can use to trace a CLSF file. It's not clear what objects need to be in place to do this.
Is a tool a part or a resource?
Do I need to assign kinematics to it?
Will it contain a frame?
When I select my part, the tool definition button is not active. So I'm obviously not clear on the requirements for a tool.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Typically a resource is defined as a tool. Open your resource for modeling, Go to Kinematics - Tool Definition. The application will assign dummy kinematics if required. It is good practice to model a frame at the tcp. Save your modeling, use Mount command to attach to the robot and set the tcp.
