Python - Rotate Imported CAD Geometry Around Selected Reference Frame

Hi All,

I am wondering whether it is possible to apply translations and rotations to an object (in my case an imported .stl file) w.r.t. a user defined reference frame?

Hi Tim,

Yes, you can use setPose to set the position with respect to the parent reference the object is attached to. Example:

RDK = Robolink()
part = RDK.Addfile("path to your 3D object.stl")
part.setParent(reference) # place the object relative to a reference
part.setPose(transl(100,200,300)*rotz(pi/2)) # set the pose with respect to the reference

You can also use setPoseAbs() to set the abolute pose (with respect to the absolute station reference).
