New Educational Robot Simulation Freeware
« on: April 28, 2012, 12:46:26 PM »
Hi,

Our Control and Robotics Laboratory (ÉTS, Montreal) just released a 3D robot simulation software for six-axis serial robots. Other than all the typical features like jogging and importing geometrical objects, the software displays the Denavit-Hartenberg reference frames and the various solutions of the inverse kinematics of the robot.

Hi ilian

Nice job,  smooth jogging.

Good information provided on Ref Frames, Joint jog and Cart jog.
Very educational if you need to understand robot motion

I tried your Spanish version, found some "typos"

What's next ? Develop a TEACH button ?

Anyway, keep educating !!!

Hi Fabian,

Thanks for your comments. Next, we plan to implement advanced workspace computation features. To the best of my knowledge, the best workspace computation you can find in commercial simulators is the zone attainable by the center of the robot wrist, which is not very useful. We intend to display the zone attainable by the active TCP for a given constant orientation or for a prescribed range of orientations.

Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

Ilian

P.S. Could you please e-mail me the typos you found?

Hy,
Nice job, I will tray myself and hope to give you some feedback.
Can I give your software to a student for his final projecy?

Hi,

Sure, the software is completely free.  I only ask that it is not distributed directly, but downloaded from my web site so that I can keep track of the number of downloads and justify spending more funds on this project.

By the way, if you want any six-axis PUMA-type robot model to be included, just send it directly to me and we will made the necessary changes so that it can be opened in RoKiSim.

I can not find the motoman area of robots, even the UP50 it is not there????
How I can integrate it?

Hi,

I am sorry. It seems that we have forgotten to include that robot in the installation package. I just uploaded the zip file containing the Motoman UP50N robot model at http://www.parallemic.org/RoKiSim.html. Just unzip the file and copy its contents into the CAD_Robots folder of RoKiSim.

If you have the CAD model of the robot you want us to prepare for RiKiSim, just send it to us and we will do it. Note, however, that depending on the CAD file that you send us, the task may not be that straightforward. In any case, we need to calculate the so-called Denavit-Hartenberg parameters describing your robot.

Best regards,

Ilian

Thanks for the software. I think this will help my classmates and myself to understand DOF's.

It's possible to record a simulation?

Hi Ilian ,

After installation, the software can not run. Concrete is such, I clicked to run the software , appear  software interface , but it can not continue to run , and then report an error ! Do you know what's wrong?
