Re: Slotting pin into hole only works when I scale up by 4

Thanks for the tips. I'm not sure if that strategy with dummies would be appropriate though, would it not end up with one robot effectively becoming parent to the other? As for giving up on random meshes there might be a way this could work, if the dummies system forces parenting and becomes inappro...

Re: What slows V-REP most?

Thanks for those tips,
P.S. any idea about the video rendering thing I mentioned in my post at the start of this topic, is there a way to get videos to be made (however long the making actually takes as depending on the processing power of one's PC) so they play at what would be the real speed?

Thanks for clarifying that, foolish of me not to notice the option under "file".

What slows V-REP most?

I've been trying to work out which features in a scene slow V-REP the most. I wondered if I could have some clarification on which of these things I've noticed typically have the greatest slowing effect when large numbers of robots are operating together in a scene, my study focuses on modular and s...

Is it not possible to import obj/stl files in V-REP on ubuntu?

I've downloaded V-REP (Edu version, v3.4.0, downloaded as the latest available version last week) onto my ubuntu (16.04 LTS I think and can check if it helps) system. I've been having a go at defining custom robots after spending some time reading through various tutorials in V-REP's documentation. ...

Slotting pin into hole only works when I scale up by 4

I'm working on a simulation where one modular robot needs to slot a conical pin into a convex conical hole on another robot so they can join. Right now these pins are random meshes imported as collada .dae files, using convex hull techniques didn't go to well for these meshes as critical holes got b...
