Dear Johannes,

Thank you for your mail.
I updated KUKA|prc, but it didn't solve the problem.

I tried to play around with the toolpath by splitting it up, and it turned out, that the NC code can be generated up until line 1799, after which it stops operating. Up until line 1799, there are only LIN movements,  but Line 1800 would be a CIR command: could this be a cause?

Bests,

Gergő

Dear Gergo,

I'll send you an updated version via eMail to try out, just to see if it's your version of KUKA|prc or something else!

Best,
Johannes

Dear Johannes,

Thank you for your prompt reply.
I checked all kinds of options about the file generation (KRL/SUNRISE/CAMrob), which all generate files,
but KUKA.cnc option results in no file in the designated folder. I also checked the default location (desktop),
but there was neither any code generated there.

Could it be, that a certain component or setting is blocking the generation?

Hello,

Thanks for the file. I see now that you cannot set the axis correctly with the default 1-axis positioner component, as it only provides a vector and always assumes the origin to be at zero.
Sorry for that. Can you specify in a bit more detail, what you want to achieve? Because the DKP 400 is included, and in the next release also another two-axis positioner. Are you using a custom system?

Two more general remarks:
Using the current date as the project name will not result in a valid SRC file. Start with a letter, don't use special characters and empty spaces.
Don't have GH automatically mesh BReps, that results in huge files. Mesh it in Rhino and then consider using ReduceMesh to get the size further down. This will greatly improve the KUKA|prc performance.
This applies even more to your tool - on my laptop, GH takes 10 (!) seconds to mesh it and creates a mesh with 1million faces - this will result in a super slow simulation. Try to get it to 5000 faces instead.

BEst,
Johannes

Hello Gergo,

Please note that KUKA.CNC creates a file that ends with *.nc and not *.src
So I would first check if you get an SRC file written, and if that is the case, change the code generation to KUKA.CNC and see if a NC file is written.

That being said, KUKA.CNC is complicated to integrate and leaves a lot of options to the integrator - so test it carefully and slowly.

Best,
Johannes

Support / kuka.cnc code generation
« Last post by gergole on June 20, 2022, 10:49:42 AM »
Hello. I'm Gergő from the Kyoto Institute of Technology.

I'm using KUKA|prc 2022-01-21 and would like to generate a KUKA.cnc code for my KR22-R1610 robotic arm with a KR-C4 controller on KSS8.3.36.

I need to mill a complex geometry, so I have generated a toolpath in Fusion360.
Since the KRL code for even the first roughing was around 20 MB, I met the limits of the physical memory of the controller, so I would like to use the KUKA.cnc already integrated into our system.

However, when choosing the KUKA.cnc (beta)code option, no file is generated, even though the computer's processor has a high load for several seconds.

I left the settings at default, as you can see in the screen capture.

Am I missing something?

Dear Johannes,

I have attached my gh and 3dm file on the below. I really appreciate for your kindly help.

Hello,

Basically that should work, internally that is also how the DKP (with two rotational axes) is defined.
It's hard to troubleshoot from the screenshot, I would need to know what you are going for and ideally modify the existing file - ideally the test-file would require no additional plugins and have all the relevant data internalised or linked in an attached 3DM file.

Best,
Johannes

Dear Johannes,

That's really inspired me. But I meet a new proble. As digarm shown, I give 2 axis here(Red line). But those tow turn panels just turn around Axis 01(Base on the vector). Could you give me any advice?

Best regards,
Hongbo

Hello,

There isn't much to it, just attach them in order and it should work. See the attachments.
Note that when using a rotary axis you are automatically using an external base that rotates with it.

Unfortunately I don't quite understand what you mean by changing E1 to E2, what are you referring to?

Best,
Johannes
