Hi, I need help. I am an absolute beginner in robotics. In the program I created a station with my robot and a turntable. I generated simple paths for machining. When the program is without a turntable, the spindle start milling in correct position. When I use a rotary table, the spindle right at the beginning wants to go somewhere else - I assume to the zero of the robot. Everything is correct in the simulation. I'm sure it's a small thing, but I can't find a fault. Many thanks, Honza
Thanks. I see that the same thing has already been discussed here several times. I assumed that I can only change the position of the rotary table in RoboDK according to the current need and the position will be set for the KUKA robot.
I think the turntable is calibrated in my robot. I can move it around, it even goes to the home position when the program starts. However, it will probably be necessary to set current location. However, I am afraid to overwrite anything on robot controller. Can you please show me where to write the values of the current table position in the files? I would like to add that, for example, for the current program, the position of the turntable (relative to the Base of the robot) is X+1800mm ;Y0; Z+185mm

I've made some progress again. I understood that I need to have the tool defined and the root point of the external kinematics. I already have both defined (measured), but nothing has changed yet. The basic generation of the program is with the settings tool 0 and base 0. I rewrote it to values tool 1 a Base 1. I have deleted the spindle start-up data, which I will control manually for now. The first run of the tool over the material is correct, but then the arm still folds into itself.
Included with the files: generated program, config and photo.
