Re: Smooth floor

Hi Luberdis,

In case you haven't tried this yet, you could maybe use a Plane?
You will find it in add->primitive shape->Plane

cheers,
D

Publish a single joint_state ROS topic for a set of selected joints

Hi everyone! I would like to publish a single joint_state ROS topic for a set of selected joints, i.e. have vrep publish a single topic which accounts for the joint states of all the joints which are part of a selected set of joints within the scene (not all the joints of the scene). I manage : 1) t...

Re: Consistently simulating a full scissor parallel system driven by a single joint

Hello, Thanks for your reply! I am actually trying to design a mock scene where the real robot can be seamlessly interchanged by this simulation (using ROS), and therefore need to produce inputs (like the piston velocity command one) that are as close as possible from the real ones. I am therefore b...

Re: Consistently simulating a full scissor parallel system driven by a single joint

I actually realised that the problem was coming from the only actuated joint of the scene : the jack. I mean to control the velocity of this actuator. So I set the properties of the attached joint to : -motor enabled (ON) -target velocity = something small (e.g. 0.01m/s) -maximum force = 1e+10 N (I ...

Consistently simulating a full scissor parallel system driven by a single joint

Hi everyone, I am trying to simulate a single-jack-actuated scissor elevator system, which is a parallel system. The real system, just as the one I try to simulate, only has one actuated (prismatic) joint (the jack) and all others are passive. To build the structure, I joined dynamic pure shapes (I ...
