Points Importer EG provides an easy way to create robot programs from CAD data. It is especially useful when complex, curved parts are being programmed for applications such as waterjet cutting, grinding and deburring.
Points Importer EG converts XML files into robot JBI files. The XML files can be created from an XML editor or scripting language in a CAD program such as AutoCAD® or Unigraphics®. The XML file must comply to the schema defined in the Points Importer EG manual. Points Importer EG supports motion commands and many mainstream INFORM III commands through the XML instructions. Points Importer EG also provides the user with a graphical user interface (GUI) for batch processing of files along with a .NET programming interface. Since Points Importer EG is a client program of MotoSim EG, the user can view and play back the newly created JBI in a virtual environment before deploying the job to the real work cell.
