Uploaded Program Debilitating Slowdown


I'm running Process Simulate 13.0 with FANUC RCS.

I have an odd problem that appears to only affect robots with a mounted servo gun. I can run an existing path with no issue. But when I download and then upload the program, it takes an unreasonable amount of time to add the operation to the path editor. I'd say it takes a good 4 minutes per via. The CPU core is maxed out like it's really trying.


The other thing I notice when the program finally opens in the path editor is that the joint columns are all blank. Normally my J1 - J6 columns contain data. Trying to play the simulation is equally slow. Trying to change any of the column fields also makes it hang.


Any ideas what could cause this?

Please report to GTAC for more detailed analysis.




Re: Uploaded Program Debilitating Slowdown


Reporting to GTAC is unfortunately not an option for me at the moment due to third party contracts.


Some new information:

The problem is not related to robots with servo mounted guns. That was a coincidence.

It is also not releated to the RCS as disabling it does not affect the problem.

Re: Uploaded Program Debilitating Slowdown


I have a workaround. Stripping the config data from the FANUC listing files before uploading to Process Simulate avoids the slowdown. I can then reteach the config and all is well.


For bulk config stripping you can use this regular expression:

(\s*CONFIG : ')(.*)
