If you upload the set of points on the curve, the robot follows the points by making the angle normal to the curve. like in figure 1.
now my question is, can a robot follow 2 sets of points at the same time or sets of line.
let's say the robot has a tool as a pen. now I have a set of lines or 2 sets of points that make a line. the pen must touch each first point from the sets, then it has to change the certain angle to again touch another 2 sets of points or line like in figure 2. is there a facility to do so? if not how can I make the tool to follow the same lines making the same angle as line have?
let me try again with a real photo from the robodk.
figure 1 is the robot setup with the block that we need to cut. the block is made of styrofoam.
we have a heated wire as a robot tool as seen in the figure.
now in figure 2, there is a finished surface after cutting.
I cannot follow the one line and get this finished product. not going through the middle line of the surface.
what is the way should I follow if I have to cut to get the surface like in figure 2.
I had also uploaded the robodk file.
thank you in advance
I think the best thing to do would be to average the point from each curve to retrieve a center point with the right orientation.
By doing so, you will be able to find the cartesian positions that match with the TCP you have right now in the RDK station.
