Upgrade to ARC Pro

Unleash your creativity with the power of easy robot programming using Synthiam ARC Pro


Awesome work DJ, as always. I am not up to speed on the 0 - release and -1 - skip. Can you elaborate on this or do I need to go back and re-read a tutorial?


@rz90208 in the auto positioner servo positions set to 0 will be released and servo positions set to -1 will be ignored when the auto-positioner is running...


Thank you Richard, I will have to play around with that to see how I can use it in my scripting. I will be using the Auto-Positioner a lot more when my InMoov is complete.


There's more expanded information on those values in the Auto Position manual page here:

You can access that page any time by pressing the question mark next to the close X on the Auto Position control
