This addon allows converting robot programs from Visual Components to native robot language. The addon is constructed so that new translators e.g. for other robot brands or controller versions can be added.
- Translators included in this package:
- Universal Robots
- IRL (VC Example)
Install the addon by extracting the zip file to My Commands folder. Then restart the application and the “Post Process” button shows up on the Program ribbon tab. Be sure to read ReadMe.txt included in the package for more information.
The post processor command includes the post processor launcher and separate translators for different robot languages. The translators can be found in a sub folder called “Translators”. New translators can be added to the “Translator” folder. New translator will automatically show up in the Post Processor save dialog as a new file type. The translator must be named with following naming convention so that it shows up in the save dialog properly:
- Naming convention:
- For example:
- app (of type vcApplication)
- program (of type vcProgram)
- uri (file uri of type string)
The command tries to match robot model with a correct post-processor by searching manufacturer on BOM Description or by matching a controller name with known names (e.g. IRC5 => ABB). If match is not found user chooses PP on action panel settings.
