How to determine the time duration per instruction?
#1
Hi, how can I determine the time duration that an instruction will take according to simulation?

E.g. I have a program with a few move instructions, I would like to determine the required move time for each separate instruction.

Related: can I separately execute the simulation of an individual instruction that is part of a program, and get a notice when done? If so, could I then use robodk.robomath.tic() and robodk.robomath.toc() before and after to measure the passed simulation time?

Best regards,

Maarten

Hi Maarten,

You can get an estimate for the whole program using the API: https://robodk.com/doc/en/PythonAPI/robo...tem.Update
I do not know of a built-in way to get a per-instruction estimate.

You can add a program call in between instructions to a Python script that logs the time, but this in itself will change the cycle time.

You can also monitor the robot and log the joints and timings, see this example: https://robodk.com/doc/en/PythonAPI/exam...tor-joints
Find useful information about RoboDK and its features by visiting our Online Documentation and by watching tutorials on our YouTube Channel.
