RoboThespian4 with Gripping Hands model Interface

Overview

Virtual robot supports a range of different robot models.

You may have multiple physical robots and want to convert content for use on a different physical robot.

You can access different models to work with using the Robots menu, then select desired model. This loads the desired model and starts a new performance.

  • Example: RoboThespian4 Gripping Hands robot model
  • Example: RoboThespian4 InYaFace model

Conversions procedure

  1. Open performance
  2. Click File >> Convert To >> pick the robot model to convert to
  3. You may see a warning that some movements will be lost. Continue.
    1. For example if you change from "RoboThespian4, Gripping Hands & InYaFace" to "RoboThespian4, InYaFace" if you added finger movements these will be lost as the gripping hand fingers have different outputs
    2. Re-add any lost outputs / movements if required
  4. Click File >> Save to save the converted performance with the same name.
  • Example convert from RoboThespian4 Gripping Hands Inyaface to RoboThespian4 InYaFace
  • Conversion - may lose some outputs
