How can I animate a robot CAD model corresponding to my MATLAB code?

1 view (last 30 days)
Hello,
I have a CAD(SolidWorks) assembly of a robot arm and a MATLAB code of inverse position kinematics. I want to animate the robot arm according to the inverse position kinematics code I created. I know that I should use Simscape to do the task. Since I've never used the tool, I have few questions about that.
  1. I have only the MATLAB code script for the kinematics. Should I have to make a Simulink model to use Simscape?
  2. The kinematics code calculates the angle of rotation of the robot arm's joints(output data) using position x,y,z (input data). How can I make the joints of the robot arm CAD model rotate corresponding to the angle of rotation I got from the MATLAB code?
  3. If you know any source I could learn about Simscape, please let me know.
Thank you

Hi,
You can use Simulink 3D Animation to animate your robot arm. You can find relevant functions here to load your robot.
  1. You can use a MATLAB function block in simulink and use your MATLAB code.
  2. You can use these functions to move the robot.
Hope this helps !!
