    Hello!

    I am an Visual components novice and have modelled a simple robot gripper using the tutorial. The gripper works and can grasp components. The problem is that i want the gripper to rotate around Y axis so i added i servo controller to that link and that also works. The problem is that the component that i have picked up does not follow the gripper when i rotate. How can i make the component follow the gripper when i rotate the gripper?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    I have attached an example project where the component stays in the air when i rotate the gripper.

    Hi!

    Just attach the Tool to the gripper Link1

    That will create ComponentContainer behavior under the Link once Grasping a component.

    P.S Also check the MountFrame orientation in the gripper. Unmount the tool, zero out rotations in Parent coordinates and mount it back with PnP tool.
