Simulation speed difference

I have generated 3 programs using the api (see attached rdk file).  I would like to know the reason why those simulation are not running at the same speed, since the setSpeed in each program are the same, the only difference between the 3 programs is the precision of the path (number of points for each passes).
The more points there is the slower the simulation is running.

Thanks for any help or explanation.

Hi Francois,

It takes longer to process a larger number of points/movements, therefore, the simulation is slower when you create the points closer to each other.

More precisely, RoboDK updates the robot path every 5 ms by default. You can improve the fluidity of the simulation by reducing this value here:
  • Tools-Options-Motion-Update robot path rate (ms)
You can set it to 0 ms and the simulation speed should be closer to the real speed (accounting for the simulation speed ratio).
