I know RoboDK focusses on robots, but would it be possible to build a digital Twin of a 5 axis milling machine and load a machining project?

Thank you Jeremy,
It's not exactly the same. Our machine has got x, y, z, A1, A2 and C
X,Y,Z matches your example. A1 is turning around X on the tool-side and A2 is turning around X on the table-side. C is turning the table around Z ( So it's 6 axis)
Honestly, it might be possible to build it, but I'm not sure that RDK's feature would work well with such kinematics.
It's kind of a 4-axis robot + a 2 axis positioner.
This one was created by "hard coding" it using a Matlab internal tool we have to create "special" robot.
But we will add this specific kinematic (3P2R) to our "Create mechanisms and robots" feature in the near future.
If you own a professional version of RoboDK, you can contact us through "Help"->"Request support" and I will give you beta access to it.
It's not possible for ppl outside of our dev team to do so.
This feature will be released in a future version.
