RobotWorks is a robotics CAD that runs with SOLIDWORKS on a Windows PC. Use RobotWorks for workcell design, motion simulation and robot programming inside one interactive CAD environment.

RobotWorks uses the SOLIDWORKS graphics and internal engine to create a robot path quickly along faces, edges and curves of CAD objects.

In RobotWorks "The Math is the Path" - the geometry behind the CAD objects is translated to a mathematically accurate path, complete with location and orientation, along which a robot can run.

With a few mouse clicks you have an accurate off line robot program written in native robot language, without using a teach pendant. Once you have created a path, you can move the parts around on the screen and the path will be revised automatically, or you can modify any point manually in an interactive way.

Key Features:

- Calculates path automatically along CAD objects
- Allows moving tool or moving part
- Enables Collision Detection
- Displays Actual Joint Values and Limits
- Provides Tool Frames and User (Base) Frames
- Works with most imported surfaces
- Reads XYZ points and translates them to robot path
- Records external events and instructions (I/Os, speed, etc.) for each point
- Writes native files for FANUC, ABB, Kawasaki, Motoman, KUKA and Staubli
- Produces point files in a generic form for most other robots

RobotWorks supplies the robot models. User parts and fixtures may be loaded from your library of parts, imported from other CAD programs, or built inside SOLIDWORKS.

RobotWorks is available as an add-on to SOLIDWORKS. RobotWorks itself is intuitive and easy to master; it requires only some basic knowledge of SOLIDWORKS. The software is accompanied by a comprehensive help file and set of tutorials, examples and "Show Me" tips.
