Hello Paul,

Your question is too wide, we can only give you some hints. And in case of a hexapod robot, the possibilities/solutions are multiple: what robot? What walking gait?
If you want to control the hexapod via visual c++, then you should write a plugin, or a remote API client.

Cheers

Hello,

For information related to plugins, refer to following sections in the user manual:
For template projects, have a look at the various example models/scenes:
  • models/ant hexapod
  • models/hexapod1
  • models/hexapod2
  • scenes/imageProcessingExample
Then of course, you need to be able to program something yourself ;)

Cheers

Paul,

We really have not enough information from your posts! What does not work? What is the error message?
Also, try to read the user manual first, then ask more precise questions. We cannot do the project for you, just give you hints.

Cheers

Paul,

All plugin skeleton files are included in your installation. You might have to convert the project to your visual studio version, but that's all. And again: why "doesn't it work"? Is there an explosion? Or maybe an error message??
You maybe better try to do the programming using a child script. Make also sure to follow this tutorial.

Cheers
