This action will load the selected toolpaths in RoboDK for robot machining. By default, each machining operation will be split as a separate robot program.

A green check mark will be displayed if the program is feasible with the selected robot. If there are any issues (such as singularities, axis limits or reach issues), a red mark will be displayed with a message of the issue.

Double click the robot machining project Plugin Mastercam - Image 10 to open the robot machining settings specific to one operation. More information about the robot machining settings available in the Robot Machining section.
