How do I fix "Mechanism data not found" message in new system?

CeloCelo Saskatchewan
Hi robot guys,

I created a new system from layout but I'm having some issues when using the Arcwelding Powerpac. This message keeps showing up whenever I move the robot.

After creating a weld instruction, and I jump into a target, an error message like this shows up.

As soon as I hit the OK button, the configuration automatically sets itself, and then I'm able to move through my program.

I know this isn't supposed to happen because I have used the powerpac in other pre-created virtual stations and RobotStudio automatically sets the configuration of new targets. Did I miss anything when I created my system? The options I checked are shown below.

Thanks in advance!

    Did you ever solve this? i happend to have the exact same problem!

    Sorry I haven't found the solution for this yet. What I've been doing is just teaching all the targets first, then using the auto configuration command so I don't have to set the configuration for each one. Let me know if you figure out how to fix it. Thanks!

    How do you use the autoconfig, i guess you talk about the autoconfig under home/paths&targets? becaus when im in arcweld i cant seem to find that option, do i need to set everything out in powerpac then shut it down and use autoconfig?
  • CeloCelo Saskatchewan
    Yes I use the auto config under Home>Paths&Targets tab. You don't need to close the powerpac when you do it.

    hmm, can you post a screenshot of the autoconfig? i just find "Configuration" but no where does it mention auto
