2D-drawing on the floor

Hi someone!

I would like to be able to put an 2D drawing or some kind of picture on the floor in the robotcell I'm working with. Is this possible or will it be on later versions??

Best regards



  • Hi Daniel,

    RobotStudio supports texture mapping. To put a picture on the floor you can do like this:

    1. Create a "surface rectangle" of the size you want
    2. Right-click the created part and select "graphic appearance"
    3. Go to the "texture" tab
    4. Click on "..." and select your picture. Note that the dimensions of the picture are limited (depending on you graphics card).
    5. The "Texture coordinates" box controls how the picture is mapped onto the surface. Typically you first click "Normalize", then use "Swap" and/or "Flip" if you need to modify the orientation.
