The RoboDK Shape Add-In allows you to easily create shapes in the RoboDK station environment. With the RoboDK Shape Add-In, you can easily create and add 3D models of boxes, spheres, cones, cylinders, conveyors, pedestals, tables, and robot cell fences.
The RoboDK Shape Add-in also allows you to define dimensions and configuration parameters for the shapes you create. A preview is available to check that the result is correct.
You can set any color and transparency for the shapes you are planning to create.
