Curve Follow Project Bug
#11
Yes it fixed it!
One last issue I am having. As my parts are 3D curved, using your Curve Follow project results in path generation where the tool is always normal to the parts surface - makes crazy movements.

I can't find an option where I can lock the tool's orientation?

I saw a work around when using Fusion 360 and your plugin to generate the curves, yet I have done the whole setup in RoboDK now, and re-doing it in Fusion would not be fun.

I guess there is a way to choose to which surface the tool in curve follow project should be normal to?


This is what I get

There are different ways of fixing this issue.

Considering how far you are, you could right-click the path -> "Export curve" -> "Save as a CSV"

Open the CSV and replace the 3 last columns with 0,0,1 (or 0,0,-1 to flip the normals) -> Save the CSV -> Drag and drop the CSV to RoboDK.

Thanks Jeremy.

Will give it a go.

Do you have any SDK's for developing tool plugins for your software?
We would like to look into developing a nice plugin for our tool integration within RoboDK.


We are developing a tip alignment tool that adjusts TCP per tip replacement. Problem, it does it within our URCap.
Is there anything similar developed/used within RoboDK? or tips on integrating such solution with RoboDK?

Working principle is the same as this guy - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SwiEwbERuQw

Nice project.

Yes, we do have an SDK/API.
You can find more info here: https://robodk.com/doc/en/PythonAPI/intro.html

There's a section on the forum for API-related questions.
