Sweep-Display dialog-box

Use the Sweep Display dialog-box to read the exact Y-axis values of the motion as a function of an X-axis value, which is defined by the parameter 'X Cursor Position'.

The Master Machine Angle [and the kinematic model] also moves to the same 'Cursor Position'.

Edittoolbar-Sweep-Display

Open the Sweep-Display dialog:

1.Click Edit toolbar > Sweep-Display icon
Sweep Display: Enumerate the exact motion-values of all motion-derivatives at the X-Cursor Position.

Sweep Display:
Enumerate the exact motion-values of all motion-derivatives at the X-Cursor Position.

Edit the 'X Cursor Position' parameter to move a cursor along the X-axis 1s-red

The 'X Cursor Position' is NOT limited by the 'Number-of-Steps' parameter, in the Active Motion Settings dialog.

To edit the value:

1.Use the Spin-Box control [to the right-side of the data box]

- or -

1.Enter a value with your keyboard

- or -

The motion-value of each motion-derivative2-R-RED-15, are listed below: Position, Velocity, Acceleration, Jerk.



Notes:

Edit the number of digits and the precision for the motion-values with:

Edit menu > Active Motion Settings > Data Format tab | Data Output separator.

Maximum 'X Cursor Position' = 'Motion-Width' 'Number of Steps'/Motion-Width

If you must know the motion-values that are very near to the end of the motion, then:

1.Use Edit toolbar > Active Motion-Settings > Motion tab > Motion Cycle Data separator
2.Edit the Number-of-Steps parameter to become greater than 360.

NEW

Use cycle [ALT+C] and, when this dialog is open, the Sweep-Cursor continuously moves so that X Cursor Position equals the Master Machine Angle.

Editing the motion-values with the Blend-Point Editor, and cycling the mechanism are now very slow.

CLOSE the Sweep-Display after any analysis with the Sweep-Display dialog-box.

 


Close the Sweep-Display Tool:

1.Use the 'Close Dialog' cross at the top right of the Sweep-Display dialog-box.
