Offs and RelTool

Is there a way to use Offs and RelTool together? Let consider for example a pick and place application: before to pick an object I want to go to an over_pick position which is 30 mm over the pick and I can do it using Offs (pick,0,0,30), but I have also to reach the over_pick rotating the tool by 90 degrees (so I would need: RelTool (0,0,0 \Rz := 90). Can I use these 2 simultaneously?
Thank you in advance!

    Or, something like p10:= Offs(pPick,0,0,30) then MoveL Reltool(p10,0,0,0\Rz:=30) etc...

    You can use them sequentially, probably would be useful to use the CRobT function.

  • Doesn't RelTool allow for displacement and rotation?

    MoveL RelTool (p1, 100, 0, 0 \Rz:= 90), v100, fine, tool1;

  • The last solution seems good for me, thank you!!! 
  • You have to bear in mind that the x, y, z displacement is in the tool coordinate system which rotates with the tool so will not normally line up with the base frame of the robot.....
