Re: Shared Memory problem when using 'simxCallScriptFunction'

Hi,

I am running on Linux (Ubuntu 18.04).
Anything I can help with?

Also, on a related note, is it possible to support multiple instances when using shared memory? I.e. is it possible to allocate a portion of the memory, so that another instance can have another portion?

Cheers

Shared Memory problem when using 'simxCallScriptFunction'

Hi, I believe I have found a bug, but if I have missed something, then I apologise in advanced. The issue is when calling 'simxCallScriptFunction' from python when using shared memory, and the function itself does a lot of computation. The bug can be reproduced by simply having a script function lik...

Re: Tracking Object on Conveyor Belt with sim.rmlStep

Thanks! In that case, I guess if I wanted to reproduce the 'motionPlanningAndGraspingDemo' today without this 1D workaround that was added due to the RML limitation, then how would I proceed? Is the following correct: - (As befoe) Plan a collision free path to get a series of way-points in configura...

Re: How to use sim.setObjectParent and preserve the absolute position?

Hi, You have an upper case ' T ' in true . True is nil because it is undefined, so it is probably getting treated as false. So try: CuboidHandle=sim.getObjectHandle('Cuboid') -- Cuboid has a parent objects, that is not located at (0,0,0) sim.setObjectParent(CuboidHandle,-1,true) -- This "moves" the ...

Tracking Object on Conveyor Belt with sim.rmlStep

Hi, I am trying to have a manipulator follow a cube on a conveyor belt. I have looked at the 'blobDetectionWithPickAndPlace' demo, but I am controlling my arm through a similar way that the Kinovas are controlled in the 'motionPlanningAndGraspingDemo' (using sim.rmlStep rather than sim.rmlMoveToPosi...

Re: Franka Panda to V-Rep

Thanks for the reply.

Out of interest, why is it preferred to do this from scratch, rather than using the urdf as a starting point?

Franka Panda to V-Rep

Hi coppelia, I hope you are well. I am looking at bringing the popular Franka Panda to V-Rep and convert to .ttm (happy to share with you once I have done so others can use). I just wanted to double check the correct procedure for this: 1. Take the xacros files from ros. Convert to urdf. 2. Load to ...

Re: OpenGL Shadows (Not using pov-ray)

Hi coppelia,

I was wondering if there are any updates with integrated shadow support?
I did end up implementing my own in the end (about a year ago), but it would be great to have official support!

Thanks
