               -> Firmware/ Graphical simulator for ABB's SmartGripper

  • What can the Virtual SmartGripper do?

               -> Manually move the gripper fingers

               -> Manually attach/ detach objects to the servo fingers/ to the vacuum cups

               -> Simulating SmartGripper's RAPID functionality completely

               -> Calibrating the finger servos

               -> Attaching/ detaching objects automatically during simulation to the servo fingers/ to the vacuum cups

  • How can it be installed?

               -> Until it will we officially released, you can download it from the attached zip folder.

              -> Unpack this folder, inside there is a word document "VirtualSmartGripper_Installation.docx"

               -> Follow the instructions there, there is also an example which you can use directly.

    I've tried to use the gripper on YuMi but I can only make it work on one arm.
    It is only the arm that I attach to first that works. So it's not particulary right or left arm.

    Someone else with the same problem?

    Dear Elinh,


    I was the developer of this project, and it worked for me.

    Do you still have this problem? - If so, are there any errors/ warnings in the output window when you attach it?


    Please provide some more information to me, so that I can reproduce your issue.

    Thank you,

    Florian

    Dear Elinh,

    I think I reproduced the issue, it should be fixed within the actual update.

    Best regards,

    Florian
