New project

All robots, objects and tools used in a RoboDK project are saved as a RoboDK station (RDK file). A RoboDK station contains all settings related to robots, tools, reference frames, targets, objects and other parameters. The RoboDK station is stored in one file (RDK extension).

It is not required to keep a separate copy of the robot files, tools and objects as they are saved as one RDK file.
