    When I try to relocate the bases for the points (following every step) to the EU-pallet the points are moved in offset from the robot base. I have tried at least 20 times with the same result, the only positive result I get is that the points follow the new (but inaccurate) base. I’m using Visual components Professional 4.0.


    I’ve recorded a video of the process. I have no idea what I’m missing.

    Best regards

    (sorry it took a while to answer. Didn’t notice your message.)

    There’s a a radio button in the ribbon to lock positions to world or to reference.

    Let’s say your point has X=1000 and Y=200 referenced to it’s parent. In null base the parent is robot. When you switch the base to that pallet, the points seem to move on the screen. This happens because the points will get a new reference. Now the example point has the X=1000, Y=200 offsets from the pallet.

    If you wish the points to stay in the same location on the screen when switching the base, make sure you lock positions “To World”.

    That should do the trick.
