Cannot dictate tool origin in point following
#1
Hi,
If my points .txt file contains only x,y,z positions I can select them in the point following utility.

10, 20, 30  and the simulation will work as expected.
15, 20, 30
20, 20, 30
25, 20, 30

However, if I add A,B,C orientation values the same points display, 

10, 20, 30, 0, 0, 0
15, 20, 30, 0, 0, 0
20, 20, 30, 0, 0, 0
25, 20, 30, 0, 0, 0

I can select them in the utility but I get the "can't find a start point" error although I am able to easily maneuver the robot to each point.

How may I specify a tool orientation for a list of points?

Thanks,
Jeff

Hi Jeff,

I answered this question in your last thread.

The point orientation DO NOT follow the A, B, C rule used by KUKA.
You need to use a unit vector i, j, k.
