Short cut to move mechanics to positions

Hey RS Team,

we always have grippers in our machines and I simulate them by creating a kinematic. To move a gripper to the opened or closed positions, I always have to click on the gripper mechanic in the tree, go the mechanic tools tab in the ribbon, go to the move to position list field and click on the deserved position. Many clicks and mouse movements :-(

Would it be possible to make the created positions available in the context menu of a mechanic? So it would just be a right click on the mechanic and click on the deserved position?

Thanks in advance!

Best regards, Mike


  • This will be added in 2019.3 along with a streamlined UI to edit predefined positions (without going into Mechanism Modeler).
