Geomagic touch initialization failed

Postby AhmadGazar » 17 May 2017, 16:14

Hello, I am trying to connect a geomagic touch with vrep via chai3d plugin . I run chai3d-3.2.0 pioneer example, and it gives me the following error;

Initialization failed (SimExtCHAI3D_start@<unknown plugin>)
Seems like the plugin is loaded correctly, yet the device can not be detected. Any recommendations? Thanks in advance.

Hello,

hum, difficult to say. If initialization fails, then it is most probably a driver or device initialization/calibration problem.

Cheers

Actually not, because the the device works perfectly with open haptics and chai3d alone, but the problem exists when I try to connect with vrep.

Looking into the plugin code, the function fails in hapticConnect. In there, it can only fail with following condition:

Code: Select all

  // get access to the first available haptic device found
  if (!DeviceHandler->getDevice(device, deviceIndex))
  {
    SceneLock->release();
    return false;
  }


Can't help you further than that.

Cheers
