Notice of new version release accompanying with the 3D simulator supporting single-axis and cartesian robots

Regarding RCX-Studio 2020 which is support software for RCX3 series controllers, Yamaha motor has extended the 3D simulator function that was conventionally dedicated only for SCARA robots to single-axis and Cartesian robots.

The 3D simulator function displays the robot and peripheral units in 3D to simulate the robot operation on a PC. The layout can be checked without any actual machines, and the teaching and debugging work can also be performed. This contributes to reducing the startup time of the robot system.

Support software “RCX-Studio 2020_V3.1.0” whose 3D simulator function supports single-axis and cartesian robots was released on our website on November 1.
