Brilliant! I'll give it a try next week at work.

Re: Beta display size issues on MacBook Retina with dual scr

Thanks for the response! Some additional info that might be helpful: this problem arises when I start V-REP on the external monitor, it's not just related to moving it from the retina to the external monitor. The font problem can be managed, but can the library toolbar be scaled as well? For me, the...

Beta display size issues on MacBook Retina with dual screen

I have a MacBook Retina. When I run the beta on the laptop screen, it looks fine. When I run it on the external monitor, the text and model browser balloon. They look to double in size.* The toolbar elements stay the same size, so it's likely linked to V-REP and not Qt. If I had to guess, I would sa...

Re: Gyro sensor doesn't use simGetObjectVelocity

I'm happy either way. I'm using simObjectGetVelocity in my code, but was wondering which was the "V-REP way" since both seemed to work.

Re: Return an object's moment of inertia

Hah, another case where V-REP has thought of everything. I looked at parameter IDs because that's where I was already getting the object's mass, and didn't think at all to look in the API. There seems to be some duplication between methods that access the model via parameter IDs and API methods that...

Return an object's moment of inertia

Looking at http://www.coppeliarobotics.com/helpFiles/en/objectParameterIDs.htm, it's easy to get the mass for an object, but there doesn't seem to be support for getting the moment of inertia as well. It'd be nice to have it for getting the total moment of inertia of a rigid object composed of multi...

Gyro sensor doesn't use simGetObjectVelocity

I notice that the gyro sensor's child script performs a simple derivative approximation to get the angular velocity. Would it make more sense to use simGetObjectVelocity instead?

Re: Resetting doesn't return model to it's pre-run state

I was using a variant of https://github.com/simondlevy/PyQuadSim (make sure to follow the instructions at http://home.wlu.edu/~levys/software/pyquadsim/ for changing the home folder in the *.lua script). I'll see if I can find a situation where the error is reproducible. I want to say that it occurs...

Store models as non-binary blobs

I realize this is likely a pipe dream, but if models could be stored in some textual means (XML, YML, JSON, etc...), then it would be easy for SCM to track model changes. Currently, a new model has to be checked in as a binary blob, which is less efficient and also makes it hard to ensure that no ac...

Resetting doesn't return model to it's pre-run state

Observed behaviors: I'm finding that my models' (and their components') reset state slowly drifts in position and orientation. Sometimes this drift is quite remarkable, like a model that was stopped while turned on its side restarts in this crashed position. This is troublesome because my models sta...
