3D printing PP: Rapid

Hello everybody,

Where can I find the RAPID code generated during printing?

In main3dp I find the print parameters while in main I find the general process. Where can I find the code with all the data that makes the robot move?

I see that during the simulation the code processes: execute3DP. Where does it find the several move instructions?

    I also would love more information on the exectue3dP_move.  Is there documentation on this process?

    The module where execute3DP_xx is placed is encrypted, and the main reason for that is that if it is edited, the dynamic loading of coordinate data will not work.
    The coordinate data are read from "Print files" placed in the subfolder MyController\HOME\3DP_EXPORT\MyProgramFolder\Print3DP\.
    The print files are in a binary format and can not be read.
    This dynamic loading method is used to not disturbing the motion planner during the print, and will enable printing of very large parts (with many coordinate data).
    If you want to add your own code, you can do that with the "Event routines" placed in the module T_ROB1_EVENTS_3DP.
