I'm new to robotics, I'm doing research on additive welding with a welding robot. consists of stacking several weld beads. then I will test the specimens and see their mechanical properties. Faculty of Mechanical Engineering.
the robot is a kuka KR 8 R1620 arc HW with ESAB power supply
I managed to make the robot weld in line and open the file in workvisual, I put a loop (I don't know if it's right where I put the loop), but I don't know how to vary the Z axis to generate the stacking of the layers without having to generate thousands of points . after searching a lot I found out that it is necessary to declare variables, but I don't know how to do it, I don't know which variable to declare and I don't know how to vary just the z axis
the idea of putting a loop is so that later I can change the parameters and check the differences between them.
thanks in advance, any help is welcome.
