Support / Set start point programmatical...
Last post by BayStone - February 01, 2023, 05:02:13 AM

Quick question about the start position.  I saw another thread about programmatic start positions, although I didnt quite understand the implementation, or if it was ever fully released. 

In hotwire foam cutting, i'd like to start the bot at the first point every time.  Currently, I will send the robot to that point in the simulation, then get that position as start in the settings.  We are cutting large blocks, and it's easiest for us to use the wire to align the block to.  This position changes nearly every time.  I'm wondering if there is a way I can delete the step to set the start point in settings and just set it programmatically.  This will help reduce user errors by forgetting to set the start, or if the old point is close to the new point and you just dont notice.

Right click on the kuka|core component and choose "Set BASE system through Grasshopper" - with some simple logic you can easily switch bases parametrically.

The Department of Architecture and Civil Engineering welcomes applications for a postdoctoral researcher position within a milestone research project "Twin Re-Fab: Digital Twins for Circular Architectural Renovation, Digital Fabrication and Robotic Construction", carried out within the Digital Twin Cities Centre (DTCC), hosted by Chalmers University of Technology and co-funded by Sweden's Innovation Agency Vinnova. The postdoctoral researcher will contribute to the research agenda of the "Twin Re-Fab" project, aimed to deliver a comprehensive solution employing six disruptive digital technologies - digital twins, 3D scanning, computational design, robotic 3D printing, machine vision and machine learning - to facilitate more circular architectural renovation and reuse of existing building components and materials.

Hi there,

I tried clicking the link and it says the video tutorial is unavailable. Do you mind re-sharing it again?

Support / Streaming Joint Positions to a...
Last post by Jishnu - January 26, 2023, 06:09:58 PM
I would like to continuously stream joint positions (ideally from a C++ file) to a Kuka robot which is loaded in grasshopper using the kuka/prc plugin. Similarly, I would also like to send the current joint positions of the Kuka robot in the simulation (in Rhino) to this same C++ file. The idea I had to accomplish the following task is to create a UPD client/server in C++ which could somehow continuously update the joint positions that the Kuka robot moves to in the Grasshoper simulation.
Could anyone help me with this or suggest a way to accomplish my goal using the kuka/prc plugin?
Support / Load diffrent Workstations

Hello everyone,
We are working with 4 different workstations and everytime we change the station we are manually changing the ABCXYZ values for the best result. I know that we are taking the long way and there is a shortcut for this. Can someone help me How can I can load bases on the core? So that we are bit more efficient.

Thank you for helping..
General Discussion / A4 rotation
Last post by felipe.veliz.f - January 19, 2023, 02:55:31 PM

I hope you all are okay.

I would like to understand the reason for the unnecessary rotation of axis 4. Why is it?.
I have two planes in the same position but with different rotation.

Attached definition and image.


Support / Safe Plane Broken?
Last post by austinsamson - January 18, 2023, 07:05:58 PM
Hey Folks,

My students just downloaded the most recent version of Kuka PRC through food for rhino - and we have a license through Wentworth - for some reason the "safe plane" node seems to be not working - specifically the "start" value, if it is set to true, it will not create the safe plane at the beginning of the path - the end plane works fine - attached are the scripts and a screenshot -

The script worked fine in an older version of KUKA prc - but for some reason I have this problem in the newer version -
