TIME VALUE (KUKA PRC Analysis data)
« on: January 03, 2020, 09:09:41 AM »
Dear KUKA PRC community,
I was wondering if you could inform me on the unit of "TIME VALUE (TIME) AS TREE" from kukaprc core>> analysis data output. are the output numbers seconds, minutes, travel distance. could you explain the properties of this output?

I would appreciate any information

Best Regards

Hello,

As KUKA doesn't publish any acceleration and deceleration ramps, the time is simply distance/speed. The unit is seconds.
So it's not super accurate for processes that often change speed, but relatively precise for processes with constant speed such as extrusion.
You can use e.g. the last time value for Galapagos to optimize the process time.

Best,
Johannes

thanks alot for the quick reply.

If I understand correctly, the TIME VALUE is the speed of the kuka moving from point A to point B and the unit is whatever rhinoceros local unit system is divided by seconds.

thanks for the valuable information

Yes, just note that KUKA|prc always assumes mm as units, even if you have set Rhino to e.g. meters.
