Check robot reach without running on controller

Any method to check for robot reach without running a module on the controller? We're interested to test the reach of different ABB models other than the one that is currently connected.

    FYI our current method for checking reach uses the function

    isReachable := CalcJointT(rt1, tool1\Wobj:=wobj1);

    then handles the error. 
  • One way to check the reach without running a module on the controller is to open the modeling tab, right click on your mechanism you want to check the reach for, and the click "Show Work Envelope." You can display the work envelope as a 2D outline, a 3D volume, or both.
