Is it possible to add the model of Kuka kr15/2 to the Library ?
#1
Hello, RoboDK team

I am a student and participating in a robot simulation related project. Now I need to use RoboDK to import related models, but I found that the robot I used is a very old model called kuka kr15/2(15-2), so that there is no such model in the software library(The closest is only kr16 2).

I tried to build the robot by myself, but I found that the laboratory did not have the relevant structure files of the robot (such as .stl or .robot). There is no relevant information about this model on kuka's official website, so redesigning through CAD software is not realistic for me.

So could u help me to add this model in the library, or send me the robot file directly?

Best regards!

Hi Van.

You need to have the 3D model of the robot to be able to add it to the robot library.
The supported file format are: Step, Iges and STL.

You can see how to create a robot from scratch here:

If you can't find the 3D model, you can always recreate the general shapes of the robot according to the measurement find in the user manual.
You can also salvage parts from other robot 3D models that fit your specific robot.

Hello, Jeremy.
Thank you very much for your reply.

I found a 3D model on the Internet this weekend. I don’t know if it is suitable for making a robot file.

Waiting for your positive response.

Best regards

Van

Hi Van, 


The step one is very suited for this purpose. 
I already split it for you. (look at the attachment)
You just need to follow the tutorial starting from here.

Once you are done, you can post it back here so that we can add it to the library.

Hi Jeremy,

I have built the robot file, based on the data given by this website:
https://docplayer.org/219444-Kr-6-2-kr-1...-l6-2.html

By the way, can I ask, how do you divide the entire robot model into each axis model?
If it involves trade secrets, ignore this part plz.

Best regards!

Van

Hi Van,

Not really a secret, but more of an "undocumented feature".
Import the step file, right-click the 3D model -> "Split objects".

You can then merge different parts together and reconvert them to object.

Ah, I saw it, thanks!
