Run a Program on the UR controller

Once your RoboDK simulation is ready you can generate a SCRIPT and/or a URP program. These two files can be executed by the robot controller. Follow these steps to generate a SCRIPT and a URP program from your robot simulation:

1.Right click a program (Print3D in this example)

2.Select Generate robot program F6

The program will be displayed in a text editor (this behavior can be changed in the menu: ToolsOptionsProgram).

Transferring the SCRIPT and URP files can be done through SFTP transfer or a USB drive.

How to load a URP program

The following steps summarize the procedure to load a URP file on the Universal Robots robot.

1.Right click the program and select Select Post Processor

2.Select Universal Robots URP         
These first 2 steps are optional as the default post also generates a URP file, however, it will allow you to generate a user-readable URP program instead of a URP program that executes a script file.

3.Right click the program and select Generate robot program (F6)

4.Save the generated URP file(s) to a USB memory disk.

5.Connect the USB memory disk to the robot teach pendant (UR’s Polyscope)

6.On the robot teach pendant: Select the Run tab

7.Select Load Program and load the program generated from RoboDK

8.Select the Program tab and select the Play button to start it

9.Select the Play button to start the program.
