Increasing the Camera's Field of View


Our Integration Coach, Tyler_Berryman posted a second program template on DoF this week! The main objective of this new one is to provide a program template allowing you to increase the camera’s field of view. Take a look here

Understanding Rx, Ry, Rz Positions on UR

A new pro on DoF, VT_340, needed some help in understanding how the tool orientation in space is described. It's straight forward to understand that XYZ coordinates define a point in space but not as easy to understand how the three coordinates come next in a pose. Louis_bergeron helps him out here!

Link the UR's E-Stop to the Gripper's Power Supply


Our Product Expert Annick_Mottard shared her trick when configuring Robotiq's 2-Finger Gripper on a UR so that it loses its power when the e-stop button is pressed. Read more about it here.

Generate from the UR10 a Text File

student on DoF was wondering if it's possible to extract a text file from a UR10. He will be measuring data from a complete cobot cycle and would like for a text file to be generated with these results. Take a look at matthewd92's suggestion!
