Plot robotarget in simulation

Hi,

I want to know if it is possible to plot in the simulation robotarget coordinates (X, Y, Z). I don't want to plot the TCP trace, but TCP points yes.

In my RAPID program I generate n targets from external application with a dataset. I need to plot the TCP coordinates (points) from dataset.

From my low knowledge in Robotstudio, I only could plot event, but it is not suitable for a figure (see attachment).



What could I do?

Best regards.

    Hi,

    No one knows how is possible to plot robotarget?

    I will ask you in other way:

    If I have a list of target (XYZ) to be simulated in Robotstudio, Could I import those targets to convert into robtarget from Robotstudio? or Do I need to create manually all targets (230 points)?

    Best regards.

    There is a point cloud import Addin - on the Add-ins tab search for it in the gallery.

    Hi,

    I installed the Point Cloud Import App in RobotStudio, but I couldn't import any supported cloud pints.

    Do you have more information about it?

    I have this format in a file (XYZ):

    342.593 86.955 530.807
    345.793 34.477 534.007
    ....
    I appreciate if you can tell me about the suitable file format (e.g. *.xyz), the structure of the XYZ points for a right imported file...

    Regards.

    It has been two or three years since I messed with some point importing, not even sure which add in.  I got it to work by making a simple excel .csv file with the xyz coords.

    Aside from an add in I imagine you could do it with programming in RAPID or any object oriented type programming language (Macro in excel would work).
    Read your x,y,z in from a CSV and then build a rob target position data.


    You should be able to equal robtarget to a value using instruction  "robtarget.trans.x""robtarget.trans.y""robtarget.trans.z" etc.
     p230.trans.x:=342.593;
     p230.trans.y:=86.955;
     p230.trans.z:=530.807;

    If I had to do this quickly I would copy paste in the 230 generic targets numbered 001 to 230.
    Then equal the x y and z data to the list that you already have generated.
    Generate the list in excel convert to a csv that looks similar in format to whats above open in notepad copy and paste into Rapid text edit using find/replace if necessary.

    Just as a word of warning these may not work for any type of motion path as the configuration and quaternians may not be correct.

    The addin states:-"Supports the following file types: .pts (Leica Point Cloud) .xyz (XYZ pos, RGB color) .bin (Size, X, Y , Z)"

    So you may need to add three trailing 0 fields for each point for the RGB in the .xyz format.
    Or one leading feild for size in .bin format.

    .pts format is number of points X Y Z Intensity value R G B
    example
    342684 (= number of points)
    4.246445 -6.426620 -50.214615 -399 66 50 83 (= X Y Z intensity R G B)
    -9.318283 -6.014053 -51.129257 -437 132 141 152
    etc

    Hi,

    Here are two examples of syntax that works with the 'PointCloud Add-In'. The three (four in the pts-file) last values on each line is color information, and is not mandatory.

    I was sitting here going RGB?  Why?  Then it dawned on me it is for the point color, yes?

    Correct, it is for the point color.
