• Hello! My name is Cristian. I'm doing a project in RobotStudio as a student. After assembling a robotic cell in the CATIA program, I imported the entire product into RobotStudio. For my application I used 2 similar robots from the manufacturer FANUC (more precisely FANUC M410iC 185). I know that ROBOTstudio software is originally for ABB robots.

    And hence my question ... is it possible to create a robot-type mechanism for FANUC in this software?

    Initially I tried to use physics joint for each component, but in the end I dont understand how I can move the robot's axis according to the active ones :J1, J2, J3, J4

    Then I tried to use the robot mechanism in the "create mechanism" window. I created a link for each component of the robot (11 results). After that I tried to give a joint between each link.

    Everything works fine until I have to join the links of "closed kinematic chain of the robot"

    I will attach below a picture with the numbered links to make me better understand..

    What I mean is that when I make joints for this links:

    1-2; 2-3; 3-5; 5-6; 6-1 ..... this error appears at the last united component after i press apply.

    ( The red dots are placed to represent the necessary joints:

    2 for 2* ; 2/3 for 5* ;3/5 for 4* ;5/6 for 3* ;6/1 for 1* )

    Am I doing something wrong? At least Is it possible to configure a FANUC robot in ABB RobotStudio to function as a normal ABB Robot or my attempt is futile? Did someone make this happen before ?

    Thank you so much! :thumbup:

    Approved the thread.
  • I believe you can create custom kinematic models in Robostudio, but this is like using a hammer to drive a screw. It would be far easier to use roboguide for this.

    Oh, I tried to use roboguide, but it does not support the extension file of my product. I think i have to manny components

  • Can you export it to one of the supported file formats in roboguide? Roboguide naturally prefers iges, but stl works fairly well. I recommend keeping your file sizes less than a few hundred megabytes though.
