KL4000 Linear Axis?

Hi, maybe I'm missing something, but I can't seem to find a KL4000 Linear Axis component in the 20221219 version.  I see there is a KL1500 component, and in looking at the manuals they have different mounting heights.  If I modify the robot base input origin to the right height, should I expect this to act appropriately for simulation, code generation, etc?  Not sure if there are other differences I'm unaware of.

I'd suggest setting up a custom linear axis, it's actually quite simple, just needs a bit of playing around with the direction maybe. An example is attached, take care to use small meshes, e.g. via the ReduceMesh command in Rhino, as otherwise the performance might suffer.
