setting origin at robot when using rotatry table?
« on: July 05, 2019, 02:40:10 PM »
I've noticed that once i've used the rotary table component, the origin become the top surface center of the rotary table, is it possible to keep the origin at the robot base?
-----
edit:
never miind, found the settings in the core component, would be nice if there was a option on the rotary table component, so I don't have to enter the values twice

Hello,

What setting did you use for that?
In any case, KUKA|prc assumes that when you're using a rotary axis, you are also working within an offset coordinate system that is located on the turntable.
If you have some external device driven by a KUKA motor that shouldn't rotate the coordinate system, simply set the geometry via the Robot Cell component and set the E1-4 values as usual.

Best,
Johannes
