Learn how to connect a Visual Components model to the Doosan robot controller. The post-processor add-on can be used to translate a Visual Components robot program to Doosan’s DRL scripting language. The Doosan controller can be either a real or virtual controller. In this tutorial, the virtual controller is run on Doosan’s DART-Studio software.
NOTE: We currently cannot use the input and wait input signal statements in our robot programs, because the Doosan interface that the plugin uses does not allow the simulation to write the input signal values. We will provide an update as soon as one becomes available.
Note that to complete this exercise, you need to download/install:
Software Version: 4.7.0 or higher
