HAL Robot Programming & Control plug-in for Grasshopper (for ABB, KUKA and Universal Robots)

HAL 5.3 is the new version of the HAL Robot Programming & Control plug-in for Grasshopper. This new version is fully compatible with Rhino 5 32- and 64-bit, and runs on Grasshopper 0.9.007x versions.

This update introduces:
  • Support for GCode via the Program Importer component, to allow you to convert code from any external CAM solution to ABB Rapid, KUKA KRL or Universal Robots URScript.
  • Support for stationary tools and mobile reference systems for ABB and KUKA robots. In addition, it is now possible to not only modify the reference system of every target of a tool path, but also to alternate between mobile and stationary tools at any time.
  • A new massive robot library includes 85 high quality robot presets, and a new feature in the Robot Creator component allows you to save your preset.
  • Real-time monitoring of any ABB RAPID variable declared in a module.
  • Constant speed motion interpolation for Universal Robots.
  • Fixes for HAL 5.0, including bugs in KUKA KRL and Universal Robots URScript and graphical glitches.

HAL 5.3 is available on food4Rhino and the HAL web site...
