Hello,

Thank you for your plug-in, this is great.

I would like to know, if it's possible to control the robot in real time with Taco. If yes, is it possible to egt a definition.

Best,

AT

Hi Federico,

attached is a TACO definition with the robot arm geometry as an output on the SOLVER component. You can use it to do your animation with custom display.

Cheers,

FF

Hello,

Thank you for your plug-in is really useful.

At the moment i am doing simulation with ABB robots using TACO and I was wondering if it is possible to change the color of the Robot after I sent the target plane. I don't know how to access the geometry once I pass it trough the inverse kinematic solver.

Hello!  Is anyone out there currently using TACO with an ABB 2600?

Or rather; Is there anyone out there using TACO?
