General Discussion / Re: WISH : Analysis - Null Axis values if out of range
« Last post by Wall-E on September 20, 2018, 10:24:58 PM »
Nope, I can see that I have an angle value for A1, but still get all Ones.
Moreover, why would I have values for axii 7 to 10 since I haven't used them ?

Hmmm... I wasn't able to replicate that, see the attached screenshot.
It may be that your position is completely out of range, i.e. unreachable, no matter the axis limit? Like e.g. when you put a position 10.000mm away from the robot's center.

Hello,

The "KUKA KR150-240 -2" should be the right one. But there are also additional versions like e.g. KR150L130 that are longer and therefore support less weight.
To be on the safe side, move your robot into its standard home position with A2 at -90 and A3 at 90 and then get its Cartesian position with both tool and base set to 0.
Make a point with those coordinates in Rhino/GH and check if it corresponds to the digital robot.

General Discussion / Virtual Robot for KR150 2000 Series (or Similar)

Which of the robots in the current library best matches the reach and range of a KR150 2000 Series (2011 production year)?

Ah, OK, I learned something here.

To illustrate the "All zeros" or "All ones"... see attached
26
I'll look into the all 0/1, but the ten values refer to a maximum of 10 axes, 6 + 4 external ones.

Hmmm...Reachability....
I failed to understand why there are 10 values, and why they are either "All zeros" or "All ones", so I dismissed the idea.

Hello,

For me the problem with NaN or null is that it doesn't tell you if it's exceeding the range in positive or negative direction.
We already provide the Reachability output in the Analysis component - doesn't that do the job?
You could just replace the axis values with NaN based on that output, if you want to.

I wish that the Analysis output for Angles were null for each axis which is out of range.
This would allow to make custom axis value displays as in the attached, but with a specific warning for the relevant axis.

Hello,

Well, I'd say it depends on which direction you want to take, if you want to work at a company, found a startup or do academic research.
I'm guessing that you are outside the EU and US, so it may make sense to enroll for a relevant Master or PhD program, also to acquire skills with robots. There are several countries in Europe with good academic programs and very low or free tuition. Note that there are usually restrictions on how much you are allowed to earn with a student visa.
I don't think your nationality is a problem - you just need to be allowed to work in the EU or UK, you don't need to be from there. I would assume that if you finish an academic program it would be easier to get a work permit in that country, but I'm really not an expert.

Hope that helps a bit!
Best,
Johannes
