Re: Introduce text-based file format for scenes and models

I tried to work only with scripts and there are two main problems. The first one is that by using only regular API I don't use at all the GUI of V-REP thus is like having a simulator in terminal mode. It works, but it lost 90% of its easy usability. The second one is that just a little portion of th...

Re: Nested joints: how to associate both a prismatic and a revolute joint to an object

Thanks for your reply. The fact is that even if I set the object as invisible and non-respondable (to avoid collisions) it would still be dynamic. This means that it will have a mass and an inertia thus influencing my system. Of course, I could set it with very low value but still, I don't like this...

Re: Introduce text-based file format for scenes and models

Thanks for your reply, Coppelia. I hope that you'll implement it very soon.

What workaround do you suggest to create models instead? Some models could be very complicated and suffer the same problem.

Introduce text-based file format for scenes and models

In an old topic (2015) and in a very old post (2013) were discussed the introduction of text-based file format for scenes and models. The best advantage would be of course the possibility to introduce version control when working with V-REP. I suppose that almost everyone here is a programmer and kn...

Re: Nested joints: how to associate both a prismatic and a revolute joint to an object

Probably is better to explain what I want in term of simulation and ask for the better way to achieve that. I have an object with a cylindrical hole and another object that has a cylindrical shape. The second object should be able to rotate and translate through the hole. Since the first object is n...

Re: Nested joints: how to associate both a prismatic and a revolute joint to an object

However, in the various example I saw the structure is like: Static_shape |- Revolute_joint |- Dynamic_respondable_shape_1 |- Prismatic_joint |- Dynamic_respondable_shape_2 with Dynamic_respondable_shape_1 different from Dynamic_respondable_shape_2. In my case, I have to put them equal to each other...

Nested joints: how to associate both a prismatic and a revolute joint to an object

I want to have a dynamic respondable shape that is attached to another shape through a joint that permits both translation and rotation. Both translation and rotation are with respect to the same axis. Since such joint doesn't exist I nested a prismatic joint inside a revolution joint. However, if I...

V-REP on Docker

Hi, I'm trying to build a docker image with all the requirements to run v-rep and I have some troubles. This is what I have right now: FROM ubuntu:16.04 RUN apt-get update && apt-get -y install \ curl \ sudo # Replace 1000 with your user / group id RUN export uid=1000 gid=1000 && \ mkdir -p /home/de...
