Example: Extrusion Process
« on: December 26, 2013, 04:53:12 PM »
NOTE: This example uses an older version of KUKA|prc!




Title: Robotically Extruding Material along a NURBS CURVE
Level: Beginner
Description: Robot follows a NURBS curve tangentially as to extrude material.
Requirements: Rhinoceros 5, Grasshopper 0.9.0072, KUKA|prc

Refer to projects such as www.mataerial.com/#mataerial-in-action by Mataerial - but note that such processes are more complex than just the motion planning as shown in the Grasshopper example above. The ";KRL EXTRUDE START" command is just a placeholder, if e.g. the extruder is attached to the robot's digital output #33, you could use "$OUT[33]=TRUE" instead.

The example has been updated to use the most recent version of the KUKA|prc trial version!
