Robot Coordinate definition

where is the origin of world coordinates in VC ? how to redefine the coordinate?
why the robot reference to this coordinate not the robot world coordinate?


go to options → display:

You can switch between world and parent (robot world frame) coordinate system:



does it mean when switch to PARENT . the X Y Z A B C value are refered to the robot WORLD coordinate?
my colleague give me points data in WORLD , so if i want to know the robot points, he need to switch to PARENT and give these point value to me ,right?

what if I set the robot WORLD Frame same as the world origin frame ? so that i can directly use the XYZ value in WORLD?

Most easy way would be, set robot’s origin to

XYZ: 0.0, 0.0, 0.0
WPR: 0.0, 0.0, 0.0

Then they will be in the same coordinate system.
