hi everybody
I need some clarification on setting initial servo positions and also setting min-max positions [for an InMoov].
I see that I can use a script to set initial servo positions and run this scrip on start up from the "connection" panel. Also I can possibly do the same thing using the "servo profile" configure and advanced tabs.
My first question is - which would take preference and would they conflict with each other?
Second question - the auto-position panel would override any preset min-max position anyway? Is there away to retain min-max settings of a servo permanently?
thanks

Hi DJ and Richard
Thank you both for such quick and clear answers! All makes sense.

@lorncampbell As DJ mentioned inMoov is a custom robot so forget about servo profiles or pretty much any standard Revolution robot setup(s)... Set your servo limitations in an init script to be run before any other control or script... Then use the AutoPositioner to create your movements...

I just finished doing this for mine. I used a single servo slider control to individually test each servo and establish its limits. It took some time but gave me piece of mind before I started the AutoPosition frames. Prior to that when I tried to enter a frame the servos went everywhere.
