RTCP KINEMATICS

Tom,
I have attached a picture of our 3+2 head.
Do you have 5 axis RTCP kinematics that support this configuration or what would be involved in creating ?

Hi Tim,

That might might be similar to our Kinematics5AxisGimbalCB.cpp class.

Please see this article.

Tom,

Having looked through your recommended 5 axis kinematic arrangement, the Wiki entry and the latest RTCP posts I unfortunately have a few questions :

Q1 : are there any pictorial diagrams of 5 axis gimbal CB and 5 axis gimbal ab as I think the differenceiis the position of C0 either around Y or X ?

Q2 : as only 1 pivot length is required I am correct in thinking that the tool centre line of the spindle connected to the B axis when it is pointing vertically down is is the centre line of the C rotation axis ?

Q3 : is there a sample of the Kinematics.txt file for the above kinematic arrangement.

Maybe I haven't found the right pages so far.

Regards,
Tim
