Re: The Cool Shit Thread

That's really cool.  up up

I'm diggin the fact that there are all those old reggae names in there. I used to be a really big reggae head. Most of those artists were from the period before my musical sweet spot/ area of expertise (which was generally early 80s-mid 90s roots and lovers' rock). Also cool that those covers were shot in London, which is a place with so much history for the reggae scene. I am fortunate to have had a chance to have spent a semester in London around 1995 and I caught a bunch of shows there. The scene was lit.  heart

I use these robots for my automation projects, the one pictured is a UR5. They are very versatile and easy to use, cost for this model is $35k. They are collaborative and can sense resistance when they contact an object, so they don't need large protective cages around them. The UR5 in the video is set at a slow pace, about 20% of maximum velocity and acceleration, but they do get more dangerous to work around at higher speeds. Persoanaly I am most impressed by the vision software and the fact that it ties in to a thermal camera.

What kind of task is it performing? Do you get work with or program it?

It will be loading / unloading test fixtures if we can work out the rest of the system design. I've had some introductory training on how to program it, but that responsibility seems to be falling primarily to a colleague. But I will make sure I get some time on it- it's too cool not to.

Any tips?

Re: The Cool Shit Thread

Link waypoints of the same name, then when you modify one, all get updated
Blend the radius between move waypoints, makes for much smoother and quicker operation. The robot will automatically select the largest blend radius, but tthis can occasionally cause the robot to crash, so just test a smaller radius if that occurs.
If you toggle the advanced feature of a waypoint you can modify that individual waypoint's velocity and accelerations.
Use subroutines for repeated operations to reduce the length of the code. Its the 'Call' function.
Do not blend the radius of the last waypoint of a subroutine. The robot will fault out and act as if it has crashed.

Re: The Cool Shit Thread

I'm always skeptical when I see a YouTube video with the beginning title "Wolds Best...". But after seeing the video, this arcade console looks awesome. So awesome that I am suspicious that I am missing something. It's made in Britain and is expensive at $2,500. But the amount of consoles and games it contains appears staggering. (And yes, I'm sure a DIY version is cheaper and could be better, but there is no way I have the time to build one of these.)

No need to watch the entire video, just the first few minutes give you an idea what what it contains.

I think there are at least 3 Geoffs on here, but I believe this is directed at me.
You got a car in mind?  I can make time.

Re: The Cool Shit Thread

There was an episode of Wheeler Dealers where Edd used that system to pull out a big dent from the eyebrow of (I think) a late 60s Camaro.  It is an amazing system
