How to create a tool

Hi everybody,

very nice and powerful software !

I'm using the trial version, and want to make a simulation with a UR10. I have designed a grinding tool with Solidworks, and want to use it in my simulation.
I tried to insert my assembly in stl or in stp format, by I didn't succed to place it on the robot fllange.

How can I do to do it?

Hi Raymond,

Follow these steps to convert an object into a tool:
1-Open the 3D file in RoboDK (drag & drop to the main screen, or use File->Open)
2-Drag & drop the object into the robot item (inside the objects tree). The object will be automatically converted into a tool.
(the procedure is similar to RobotStudio)

You can reconvert any tool into an object by placing it back to a reference frame.
You should be able to import STL, STEP and IGES format without problems.
