This week, we developed and launched a brand new URCap with a graphical user interface for the 3-Finger Gripper. With the new URCap, you can insert Gripper instruction nodes directly in the program tree.
More precisely the new features include:
- A node for resetting and/or activating the Gripper
- Gripper move nodes
- An object detection node (packaged as an If statement)
Matthewd92 shared an interesting hack for securing your UR teach pendant on the bracket. It's as easy as using a carabiner like those found in the camping aisle of your department store. Hopefully this trick will be useful for you! What do you use to secure your teach pendant?
