Support / Re: import gcode digital output
« Last post by Johannes @ Robots in Architecture on October 07, 2019, 12:15:05 PM »
Hello,

Here's an example that I think we produced before. I'm not at my main PC, so I couldn't verify it, but I'm pretty sure that's the right file.
It looks like this:

Code: [Select]
G1 X187.993 Y102.063 E1.9422
G1 X189.27 Y103.839 E1.971
G1 X189.637 Y104.407 E1.9799
G1 X190.73 Y106.291 E2.00858
G1 X191.043 Y106.898 E2.01758
G1 X191.941 Y108.871 E2.04612
G1 X192.187 Y109.488 E2.05487

Best,
Johannes

yes, E is how much the extruder extrudes in mm
but the extruder on my tool is set to extrude at constant speed, and only extrudes when it receives signal from D32 on the robot.
So what I'm wondering is if it's possible to convert the E in the gcode to D32?
.
I'm also curious as to by default, what does the component expect in the Gcode for the extrusion mode? I could probably modify the gcode to match?

Hello,

In your G-code example, is E the target speed of the extruder? It seems that we have mostly dealt with distance values before, i.e. the G-code defines how many mm of filament to extrude, not how fast to move stepper motor.

Hello,

It's cumulative for all files in the robot folder, so it makes sense to keep it clean.
If you want larger files, there are a few options...
...KUKA.CNC (KRC4 only)
...KUKA CamRob (KRC2, not officially available for KRC4 anymore)
...PointLoader (https://www.orangeapps.de/?lng=en&page=apps%2Fpointloader - third party product, haven't been able to test it yet. You will need to adjust the KRL output a tiny bit, get in touch if you will test it).
...or live-streaming via mxAutomation, though it might choke with the high point density of 3D printing files.

And you can of course also try to reduce the complexity of the toolpath.

Best,
Johannes

So i'm doing some complicated tool paths for a large 3d print.
and I've ran into the 8mb file limit problem.
I thought that if i split the file up into smaller files of <8mb i'd be fine, but the 8mb is accumulative not by file.
Just wondering how others are getting around this problem?

(There's about 5 millions line of instructions, totalling around 100 something mb)

I'm importing gcode generated by cura, the gcode flavour is bits from bytes
Everything seems to be working fine, but the digital output command doesn't get added

Toggling the drive did indeed solve the problem, weird, since in my experience, it usually auto toggles when the enabling buttons are pressed.
Thanks!

Hello,

Now that's a good find!
Did you try to just manually turn on the drives, by pressing the middle of the S O/I R buttons on top?
A safety issue should show up as a red or yellow error message, but make sure that all doors are closed etc.
Finally, take a look at the sps.sub, if there are variables like $CONF_MESS set from digital inputs.
Regarding training materials, if they were initially included I'm sure you can get them from KUKA again. But for e.g. the new ready2educate cell, there is a lowest tier that doesn't include any training material.

Best,
Johannes

General Discussion / KR6 Training Cell Automatic mode
« Last post by evo85210 on September 27, 2019, 06:23:41 PM »
So I just found out my workplace have a Mobile training cell with KR AGILUS sitting at the rear of storage.
Everything seems to be working fine, except it doesn't run in automatic mode, I keep getting Active commands inhibited. (see attached)
I press OK, it goes away, but when i press the play button again it pops up.
It runs fine in T1 and T2, anyone know how to fix/configure this?


also, I see that it has some pen holder and this fancy wavy board with a stand, is there some kind of documentation on how to use them?

Thanks

Hallo Johannes,

Thank you for your reply. I used rotate 3-d plugin in grasshopper to align the plane along the required direction and angle. But I guess your solution would work as well. Will update any further details if required. Regards,

Abishek
