Re: Placing coloured circles on the ground

I've just tried this, I get an error: One of the function's argument type is not correct. (sim.createPureShape) when I try to do: local SizeTable={0.1,0.1,0.0001} local PrecTable={12,12} local FoodHandle=sim.createPureShape(2,18,sizeTable,0,PrecTable) to make a flattened cylinder, edges marked, mass...

Creating disc objects? And putting scripts on them at creation time

I need an object in my scene to create disc objects which can then do things for themselves. I want this object to be able to create the discs, then load them with a script. I already know what this script will be, but it has a few variables in it which can have different valeus set at the moment of...

Placing coloured circles on the ground

How can I get robots be able to lay down coloured circles on the ground which other robots can then detect with a vision sensor as they drive over, I guess this is related to how your drawing line marker model works but don't quite understand it's principle of operation. Also is there an easy way th...

Re: Khepera K3 model, how is the UI done?

Just for quick testing if there an easy way to write lua script, much like that used on the bubblerob tutorial which, like the khepera's UI, lets the UI only appear when the robot is selected. I only need basic sliders like the bubbleRob uses and I can get those working fine. The one change I want t...

Multiple V-REP instances running on same computer conflict, cannot have lua scripts write to files from latter instance

I've tried running separate V-REP sims in parallel on the same (linux) computer. I find that even if two separate copies folders are used for V-REP_PRO_EDU_V3_X_Linux for each sim to run in, hence two separate terminal windows launched, one in each folder, then weird behaviours occur between the two...

Khepera K3 model, how is the UI done?

The default khepera K3 model includes in v-rep 3.5 includes a UI which when thr robot is clicked upo9n will appear but if the robot, during the simulation run, doesn't get selected stays invisible. How is this done? I want to do something similar for models of my own but all I can see within the khe...

Re: Turn off update checker, interferes with automated sim runs

Thanks fferri, that looks like an appropriate solution for my trouble. I've edited doNotShowUpdateCheckMessage in the usrset.txt file from false to true but can't find "suppressStartupDialogs = false" anywhere so as to change it to being true, should I just add that line in, set to true, at the bott...

Turn off update checker, interferes with automated sim runs

I need to turn off the automatic update checker as it is causing havoc with my attempts to run sims over nights and weekends. After setting a series of simulations running using (on a linux terminal) for i in {1..20}; do ../vrep.sh -g70.5 '/home/user/Downloads/V-REP_PRO_EDU_V3_5_0_Linux/scenes/filen...

Re: V-REP from command line, press the "hare" button

Thanks, that sim.setInt32Parameter(sim.intparam_speedmodifier,x) tip is exactly what I needed.
