Palletizing with robodk
#1
Good Morning All,

I have a robot on a slide rail whose task is to take boxes from an incoming conveyor and palletizes them in a nested, multi-layer pattern. I have used the palletizing panel. Is it possible to have the program place the first two boxes horizontally the the next two vertically? Also, how do you get the slide rail and robot to work simultaneously? the program will currently only moves the slide rail and I always get an error "The robot can't make a rotation so close to 180 deg. (the rotation axis is not properly defined)"

Hi Tsmpson3,

I recommend you take a look at this webinar on mechanisms.

You can also read this section of the doc to learn how to synchronize the external axis.
https://robodk.com/doc/en/General.html#SyncAxes

And this video to learn how to create a palletizing process with a linear rail.

Hope it helps.

I would like to follow your palletizing example in your documentation @ https://robodk.com/doc/en/Example-Pick-a...PpluginCAD. However, I am unable to find your Box and Pallet CAD models even though I could probably create them on my own. Thanks for considering.
