I’m new to VC but I’ve been programming industrial robots with OEM tools for the last 10 years. To what extent (if any) can the python scripts for a robot program be exported to the controller in the OEM language (TP, RAPID, KRL, etc.)?
I understand that there are Add-Ons that can be purchased. Do the Add-Ons make it possible to convert (to some extent) python scripts?
Yes. You can use these add-ons with VC at no additional cost.
I don’t know that much about other add-ons like this one.
You can use the exporter/ importer add-ons as examples for making your own. If you are using VC Premium, you can use the RDTE feature for UR robots, and the Stäubli add-on for VAL3. The extent of those two are documented in the Help > Tasks > Connectivity but you will only see topics on those items in Premium Help file.
