I have modelled a two way physics conveyor and put it in a layout for PLC code testing. My physics feeder in front of the conveyor is programmed to release the products to physics, the conveyor transports the product to the far end for machining and when the conveyor is reversed the product is returned to the feeder end. Works fine.
For visual representation of the manual feeding process i have tried to add a human resource. My physics products are fed to a ShelfBuffer, picked up by human and put on the conveyor using a “ToConveyor Process”. To make the human wait and pick up the product when it returns from machining i have tried “FromConveyor” and “ProcesNode”, but the problem seems to be, that the product is released from the flow, and the different process handling nodes can not “catch” a “free flowing” physics product. I have tried TransportIn property “Source” set at “Previous process” and “Component container”. Even though the physics conveyor takes care of the transport, I have tried to establish a “Conveyor transport” flow between the “ToConveyor” node and whatever node i tried as the “FromConveyor”. But the product is still not received when returning to the conveyor start.
Basically the question is: Can you make a physics product enter a flow without using a previous process?
