  • I am trying to create some basic programs using the offline simulator for the UR5.


    I am using Windows and a VM as per the instructions.


    When I am trying to create a program, the robot arm graphics keeps blinking very fast and I cannot see any movements or cannot finish a program, has anyone come across this before? I have attached a video of it here video-1596014422.mp4


    It might be with my VM set up?


    Below are my laptop and VM specs:


    Laptop specs:

    • DELL Latitude 5400
    • System type: x64-based PC
    • Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-8665U CPU @ 1.90GHz, 2112 Mhz, 4 Core(s), 8 Logical Processor(s)
    • RAM: 16 G
    • Graphic: Intel (R) UHD Graphics 620, RAM 1 G


    VM specs:

    • I use Oracle VM VirtualBox
    • All the memory etc. is set by the recommended values included in the installation instructions.
    • RAM: 1024 MB

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  • Unfortunately, running the URSim under VirtualBox has this glitch problem.


    Althought I personally prefer use VirtualBox, in this case the best option for me is use VMware Player.

    I actually had issues with VMware Player when installing the URSim, that is why I went to use VirtualBox. When using VMware Player, after I downloaded the URSim off UR download webpage, I could never find it in downloads when I searched using my VM. I contacted UR support and they advised to use VirtualBox.


    It`s like a catch 22 :face_with_rolling_eyes:
