Get trajectory path length with API or/and via short python script
#1
Hi guys,



I'm back with a general theoretical question.

Is it possible to directly determine the length of the trajectory (or path) of a moving TCP using the RoboDK API with a short Python script?

The background is that I want to know if the trajectory from point A to point B is shorter than the path from point A to point C (e.g. length in millimetres [mm]). Is it possible to get an output of the traveled path length with the API or using a short python script? 


Greetings from Germany

Hello,

With the API, calling the prog_item.Update() will return an estimate of the distance travelled, in mm.
See https://robodk.com/doc/en/PythonAPI/robo...tem.Update
Find useful information about RoboDK and its features by visiting our Online Documentation and by watching tutorials on our YouTube Channel.

Thank you very much for your answer Sam, it helped me a lot. I used this code block with your help.




...

[n_instructions, program_time, program_distance, valid_ratio, readable_msg] = prog.Update()
print("Distance in [mm]: ",program_distance)
print("Time in [s]: ",program_time)
...

Works perfectly for me. Thank you!

You're definitely familiar with the best coding language C++ that developers use to develop their projects and they get all their queries like "expected unqualified-id before 'if'" answered properly. Developers are finding an appropriate answer about expected unqualified-id before 'if' related to the C++ coding language.
