Component Grabber


I’m a KukaSimPro 3.0.3 user wich I guess is the very same as the VisualComponents 4.

I would like to know what if there is some kind of “Component Grabber” in the VisualComponents 4 (KukaSimPro 3.0.3).

This feature exists in the old VC (KukaSim) software.

The purpose of this, is, for example, to be able to grab a part with a “Succion cup” mounted on linear joint (like a piston).

In attachement, you’ll have the component.


Thank you.

I believe the method you are looking for is:

vcComponent inherits this method from vcNode


def OnRun():
  # Wait for a component in your container.
  while not getComponent().getBehaviour("MyContainerName").HeadComponent:

  joint = getComponent().findNode("MyJointName") # Find the joint object
  child = getComponent().getBehaviour("MyContainerName").HeadComponent #Find the component you want to attach to the joint
  joint.attach(child) # Now any movement of the joint will also move the child component.
