Curve follow project where the robot holds the object

Hello everyone,

I am trying to make a curve follow project where the robot holds the object and move the object to the tool. 

Is it possible to set up the simulation so that the tool's Y-axis is always parallel to the defined path?
I have attached the simulation so you can see the setup.

Thank you very much for you help.

Hi Jonas,

This is currently not possible but we'll try to add this option in a timely manner.

Hi Jonas, 

We just released an update that should help you reach your goal. 
Start by downloading the latest version of the software on our website. 

In the"Curve follow project", you should now find this option. 

With this option, the X-axis of your reference frame will always be tangent to your curve. 

I did a little test with your station, you may need to reposition your fixed tool so avoid joint limits on axis 3.
Another option would be to split the path in two sections. 

Have a great day.
