Godzilla

Godzilla.  Simple Robotic Simulation

DESIGN AND TEST NEW ROBOTIC PROECSSES IN HOURS NOT DAYS

“I want to simulate a robot, but it’s too complicated”

RoboFold has created the Godzilla software to help you simulate robots easily. No more complicated definitions, just create a tool-path. Then you get:

  • Simulation automatically generated. Develop and test your process intuitively before you use the robot.
  • Code automatically generated for ABB, Kuka and more. Upload to the robot with one-click, from any computer on your network.
  • Plugins available for milling, folding and 3D printing to get you started. Ready made processes allow you to start making from day one.

Built by RoboFold – leaders in creative robotic development

Godzilla definition

How do I control how the robot moves?

The robot follows a sequence of planes, so you need to:

  • Obtain planes from Rhino geometry e.g. lines, surfaces, meshes
  • Create planes directly using standard GH tools or scripts

See more in this example video: robots in 60 seconds

Current Features

Timeline

  • Multiple robots displayed in parallel
  • Re-order your sequences easily
  • Visualise actions, clash detection and axis limits
  • Use scripting to create loops with Python or C#

Robots and tools

  • Use, create, import and export robots and tools
  • Share robots and tools with .rob/.too file format.
  • Define tool weight and COG

Actions

  • Monitor actions in real time with heads-up display
  • Custom values e.g. on/off, true/false, numerical values, speed, %’s, Zone, MoveL, MoveJ

Clash detection, singularities, reach and axis limits

  • Persistently displayed as colour changes on all affected key-frames
  • Dynamically displayed as colour changes on robots

It has been a while since I last used Godzilla. I have installed V1.1 and would like to import KR125 robot but when clicking "create robot" there's no drop down menu for other options, do I need a license for this?

 

thanks

No License is required, just be sure to fill out each input.

Guy, I've seen you make some pretty complex definitions in your time. But you can get this definition running with only 5 components... ;-) -Greg

Plug "Robot" in "Timeline", also plug a "Curve" and "Slider" into "Perpendicular Frames", and into "Timeline" - the curve should be your toolpath, you might need to move this nearer your robot; when there are no orange lines showing on the timeline, you are within range. Hit the play button...

I need a sample file too!thank you !
