Visibility of the carthesian manipulation elements

Hi Guys and Girls,
in kuka Sim pro 3, I can’t see the elements used to carthesically manipulate the robot. (Marked in yellow in the following image).

How can I make them visible?

Thank you in advance.


Hi, i found out in the meantime that it seems to be a bug. The manipulation elements are not displayed correctly.

Does anyone have an idea how to fix the problem?

Hi I have seen this before, and I think its because your graphic card is too small. You need a stronger computer preferably a gaming laptop.

Hi, my Laptop actually is pretty strong:
This are my specs:
Win 11
CPU: 12th Gen Intel(R) Core™ i7-12850HX 2.10 GHz
RAM: 16 GB

I just found out, that Kuka SimPro is using my onboard GPU instead of my strong one.
This could be the reason for the Bugs.

Thanks, Titu

check which graphics card uses vc.

on your computer in graphic settings
graphics preference for VC is high performance?

Hi, after I changed the default used graphics card from the onboard GPU to the dedicated GPU via the Windows settings for the “VisualComponents.Engine”, the problem has resolved.

Thanks for the support.

Could you help me with the step by step? I have de same problem.

From intel’s website (How To Set the Default GPU for Applications and Games)

Instructions on how to force apps or games to use dedicated graphics or integrated graphics.


How do I set my GPU to run my applications and games?


To set the default GPU for your application or game, you’ll need to associate your games with it so your computer will know which GPU to use.

  1. From Start Icon, type “Graphics Settings”. Click the results from System Settings.
  2. Click Desktop App.
  3. Click your application. If your application is not on the list, you will need to browse to the folder where the .exe file is located.
  4. Once identified, click Options.
  5. Set the application to your preferred GPU.
  6. Click save.
