Pick object with vacuum tool.

jthygejthyge Denmark
I am trying to pick up at box, using the Vacuum 2x3 tool. 
The tool seems to work. When i send the value 1023 to giSCToolActivators the visualization changes from green to yellow. 

However i am not able to pick up at custom made box. I tried with physics as Kinematic and dynamic. 

What am i missing?

    Is this a smart component you have down loaded from the RobotApps or did you create it yourself?

    Oh, i found it in the Import Library->Equipment ->Grippers.. Assume is a default RS tool?

    I do not have a grippers group only tools, and Vacuum 2x3 is not in that group.
    Smart components need the simulation to be running to work correctly.
    If you do not want the program to run - in the simulation setup you can de-select the robot (leaving the smart component selected), then you can press play and the robot program will not run but the smart component is.

    I have now made a test setup with the ABB FelxGripper 2.0 Vacuum_Pallet gripper, and runs the program in simulation. 

    Same result, the indication changes, but the gripper doe not interact with the box.

    Solved the problem designing my own tool. Much learning in doing that. 
    There are no shortcuts in RS...  ;)
