1.- Is it possible to import a program from a UNIVERSAL ROBOTS robot in .urp format?
2.- Is it possible to connect a UNIVERSAL ROBOTS robot with Robodk, run a program on the robot and have it reflected in Robodk?
Just last night I was able to run a program on my UR3e and watch it update in real-time on the screen. However, there are a few non-obvious things that make a huge difference, and a few things that were quite surprising to me that could result in a crash if you're not careful.
The "run on robot" flag (set by right-clicking on a program) uses a "driver" (for UR, it is called 'apiur', and can bee seen in the Connect to Robot -> Options window). This driver is different than the way programs work if you send them to the UR controller via USB Drive or FTP with Filezilla. It works a lot more like what you see in the RoboDK GUI. Things like simulation speed and blend curves are very different compared to when I used "generate program" and transferred to the UR controller.
With the "run on robot" flag set, it is quite easy to accidentally click on a single move within a program instruction and be surprised that your robot is following along just like you told it to.
Thank you all.
I think I already have it done.
