How do you set up a system for 3DP Arc?

I have been working on setting up robot studio for 3DP Arc with a Fronius TPSI. I followed the 3DP configuration tutorial by ABB. However, when I go to run a simulation It does not run and in the rapid code the Weld3DP variable is trying to call an unidentified variable. At this point I am unsure if I am missing a required driver or if I have to edit a movement instruction to get it to work. If anyone has gotten this to work please let me know what your drivers and settings are.

    It sounds like you not have defined any "welddata" and "seamdata". The 3DP PowerPac use the weld and seam data defined in the "instruction template" used at export. So you need to define one "welddata" and one "seamdata" in the Virtual Controller, and then select them in the Arc instruction template you use.
