Can you send me an example what you are referring to? Either post it here, or send me an eMail (
How are you generating your CIRC motions?

I solved my problem. It was wrong machine data. Thanks a lot for your help. But now I have new questions. Can the prc convert motions from grasshopper to circ-motions, but not only in lin. My circle divides into a many lines. It's very bad.
If you go to Tools/Options/Debugging in Visual Studio you should see an option to exclude "modules". I believe this is where you exclude dlls!

all good information. Thank you! I will look into the RDW.
Support / Re: Visual Studio, Grasshopper, and KukaPRC DLL Error

Also not too sure how to exclude specific DLLs from a project that loads Grasshopper.Kernel (I assume all DLLs get loaded together). Do you have any suggestions on how to approach that?

Thanks for looking into it. Let me know if you need any debugging output from me to diagnose the problem. I am running VS 2015 and Rhino 5.

That is strange, because I'm often developing separate components in GH and did not come across that. I remember it from the old PRC (i.e. 4 years or so ago) where we had a somehow overzealous obfuscation software.
I'll look into that early next week - in the meantime you could try to exclude VS from automatically loading the PRC dlls.

Support / Visual Studio, Grasshopper, and KukaPRC DLL Error
« Last post by GammaNYC on December 14, 2017, 07:58:15 PM »
After installing KukaPrc I have problems developing C# components in Visual studio. When I compile and grasshopper opens (F5) it gives me a few errors (see attached images). Even though I am not using KukaPRC for the particular component I am developing. It just gets stuck loading that dll.
The funny thing is that when I open rhino outside of VS, I can still run the components I developed, so the errors must not be super critical, (more on the loading side) however they do stop me from launching GH directly from VS, hence my need to fix this.

Any suggestions?
Job Openings / Post Doc in Sensor Technology for Creative Robotics in Architecture

Post Doc in Sensor Technology for Creative Robotics in Architecture
 - at Aalborg University, Denmark.

At the Technical Faculty of IT and Design, Department of Architecture, Design, and Media Technolgy a position as Postdoc in Sensor Technology for Creative Robotics in Architecthure is open for appointment from February 1, 2018 or soon hereafter and for a period of two years. The Department of Architecture, Design, and Media Technology has as its goal the development of an innovative cluster of engineering-based environments for education and research which integrate creativity, engineering and technology within the disciplines of architecture, urban design, industrial design, digital design and interactive media. The department is a leading research and educational environment in Denmark that addresses the challenge of the interplay between creativity and technology, and develops new areas in research and education directed towards the end-user.

Aalborg University (AAU) is a leading University in Denmark within Architecture & Design as well as within Robotics. This post doc position is for two years and aims at bridging the gap between these traditionally isolated fields and contribute to research within Creative Robotics. Concretely, the focus will be on researching how sensor technologies, adaptive control and collaborative robotics can take part in the development of creative robotics for architectural applications. The studies are focused on architectural full scale prototypes interfacing between sensor data, parametric design models, robot actuation, information analysis and projection for design decision interfacing.

The ideal candidate therefore has strong competences within; sensor technology for adaptive robotics, computer vision and human-robot-collaboration including visual feedback e.g. VR, AR, projection. Moreover, interests in architecture design processes, material properties sensing and architectural physical prototypes are considered very positive.

The post doc will work closely together with the local Architecture group, Interaction group and Computer Vision group, meaning that the candidate should be interested in cross-disciplinary work.

 Limited teaching within the area can be expected, but also in other study programmes at the University.

You may obtain further professional information from Professor Thomas B. Moeslund, tel.: +45 9940 8787, mail
Qualification requirements:
Appointment as Postdoc presupposes scientific qualifications at PhD–level or similar scientific qualifications. The research potential of each applicant will be emphasized in the overall assessment. Appointment as a Postdoc cannot exceed a period of four years in total at Aalborg University.

The application must contain the following:

A motivated text wherein the reasons for applying, qualifications in relation to the position, and intentions and visions for the position are stated.
A current curriculum vitae.
Copies of relevant diplomas (Master of Science and PhD). On request you could be asked for an official English translation.
Scientific qualifications. A complete list of publications must be attached with an indication of the works the applicant wishes to be considered. You may attach up to 5 publications.
Dissemination qualifications, including participation on committees or boards, participation in organisations and the like.
Additional qualifications in relation to the position. References/recommendations.
Personal data.
The applications are only to be submitted online by using the "Apply online" button below.

An assessment committee will assess all candidates.

For further information concerning the application procedure please contact Anne Christoffersen by mail or phone (+45) 9940 9680.

Information regarding guidelines, ministerial circular in force and procedures can be seen here:


Employment is in accordance with the Ministerial Order on the Appointment of Academic Staff at Universities (the Appointment Order) and the Ministry of Finance's current Job Structure for Academic Staff at Universities. Employment and salary are in accordance with the collective agreement for state-employed academics.

The ancient solution to at least 25% of all problems ;)
An unmastered robot cannot move in Cartesian mode, so you do not have to worry about that. If the robot loses its calibration (e.g. if it is mishandled while shut down, and the axis position from before the shutdown do not match up with the current position) you will get an error message.
However it is strange that it forces you to master all axes, I believe that I always had to manually unmaster an axis, if I wanted to master an axis that the robot considered to be correctly mastered.
If your robot is always unmastered after you power it on for the first time, there is probably an issue with your RDW.
