OCTOPUZ 3.0 introduces the PathPlanner suite of tools, an enhanced programming experience for creating, modifying, and transforming path and search statements.DOWNLOAD OCTOPUZ 3.0 NOW
Introducing new, intuitive tools for creating path and search statements in OCTOPUZ. With multiple path and search selection methods, along with real-time path previews, integrated automatic collision avoidance, and simple configuration options, creating statements in OCTOPUZ is better than ever.
Create path statements of any type by selecting a path in the 3D environment. Integrated creation of welding paths includes support for many welding operations, such as stitching, weaving, seam tracking, and multipasses.
Create 1 point, 2 point, and 3 point touch sensing statements. Manually select your exact tool touch locations in your 3D environment to ensure you are searching exactly where you want.
Automatically create a search statement based on a previously created path statement. OCTOPUZ automatically calculates optimal touch sensing locations at the start, end, and/or middle of the path.
Sometimes, modifications to previously created path and search statements are needed. In OCTOPUZ, there is now a collection of modification tools to help.
Modify your set parameters and advanced settings of previously created path and search statements. You can make adjustments easily, without needing to entirely recreate your statements from scratch.
The Merge Statements tool combines several individual points or path statements together. Once merged into a single statement, you can jointly adjust settings or parameters, such as tilt and flare, or speed and accuracy.
The Split Statement tool separates a statement into its individual motion points, perfect for when you need advanced control over your individual points or need to make unique point corrections.
The Linearize Statement tool takes all the motion points in your statement and converts them into Linear moves, for when precise linear motions are needed.
The Circularize Statement tool takes all the motion points in your statement and converts them into Circular moves where possible, which can greatly reduce the total number of program points required for a robot to perform its desired motion.
If you have similar geometry along your physical programmed part, you might want to take your exact path or search statement in your robot program and place in a different location or in multiple different locations in your 3D environment. For these cases, there are now transform tools in OCTOPUZ.
Want to move your path or search statement to a different location? The Move transform tool moves your entire statement from its current location in your 3D environment to an alternate location.
Want your exact path or search statement in one or more new locations? The Copy transform tool will copy your statement to as many new locations as needed.
Need an identical path or search statement on the other side of your path? The Mirror transform tool mirrors, or flips, your statement to one or more new locations.
The Point Editor panel brings an entirely redesigned point editing experience to OCTOPUZ, through a unified look that focuses on providing easy-access tools which affect specific points of a path or search statement.
An easy to navigate toolbar provides access to powerful statement point editing tools. In addition, you can scroll through your statement's points using a navigation bar, or by using previous and next buttons that move between significant points.
Right click on any statement point to access a menu containing commonly used point editing tools, including Touch-up Point, Add Point, Delete Point, and more.
Choose to see what interests you most by customizing the information displayed for each statement point. Select from a list of possible parameters, including move type, positional data, rotational data, speed, accuracy, and externals data.
