Easiest/best way to "copy" a robot

  • I am basically duplicating a line, which includes 5 robots. The robots have the exact same options. The minor revisions are slightly different.

    What's my best option to copy all programs and setting from the existing cell? Do I just do a restore of a AOA backup or should I restore an image backup? I have roboguide available if that makes a difference.

    Thanks in advance!

  • I wouldn't do an image to duplicate between lines, I believe images take mastering data so you'll make more work for yourself. I haven't tried an AOA from one robot to another, I've always been too weary about getting a couple files that could be a problem. I would take an AOA and take all of your TP and karel. I think these will get you most of what you need: diocfgsv.io, numreg.vr, posreg.vr sysegd.sv, sysframe.sv. There may be a few more, but these will get you most of the way there.
