    Hey dear VC community,

    I’m actually working on a project with Visual Components and I would like to simulate some stations like this pick and place station from Festo :¬†https://www.festo-didactic.com/int-en/services/mps-the-modular-production-system/stations/pick-place-station-8034567.htm?fbid=aW50LmVuLjU1Ny4xNy4zMi4xNDkwLjc4MDA.

    The problem is, I did not find the models in the collections and I don’t know if it is possible to download and simulate models or librairies from other manufacturers.

    Can someone please help me?

    Thank you

    regards

    Hi,

    If you have the CAD data for the station it is possible to do it. You will need at least VC Professionals to import the geometries and create the behaviors to simulate the cell.

    Hello

    In Your example case, You have 2 options.

    If You want to model and simulate that Festo PnP station accurately, You need Professional or Premium version of the software, so that You have an access to Modelling-tab in our tool. Then You can import the station CAD models, create Your own servo axis and sensors etc.

    Second option is to use existing parametric libraries and change the dimensions and parameters of the library components so that they match the real solution dimensions and parameters. You can import CAD models and attach those “over” the default components geometry.

    Cartesian

    In this example, simple PnP cell is done from Conveyor, Conveyor Sensor and Generic cartesian robot.

    Hope this helps
