no memory available
« on: October 04, 2019, 03:24:02 PM »
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)

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 ( - 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.
