Z-Raw-Data is a List Segment-Type.
The Z-Raw-Data is a segment that uses the Data-Transfer Table to import your data as the motion-values.
STEP 1.Import your data to the Data-Transfer Table
1.Use the Motion-Law Selector to select Z-RAW-DATA for a segment.
2.Open the Data-Transfer Table
3.Click the cell at the left and top row (cell equivalent to A1) of the Data-Transfer Table to make it the active cell.
To import your data to into the Data-Transfer Table.
a.Copy and Paste your data into the Data-Transfer Table
a.Get Motion-Values from a different motion or segment
Note: In your original data, include as many decimal points as possible.
The data is now in the Data-Transfer Table
STEP 2.Move your data to the Z-Raw-Data segment from the Data-Transfer Table
1.Click the Pos header in the Data-Transfer Table to select the column of data
2.Click Put List Data in the Data-Transfer Table toolbar.
To move a sub-section of the data:
1.Click the first data point you want in move to the Z-Raw-Data
2.SHIFT + Click the last data point you want to move to the Z-Raw-Data
3.Click Put List Data in the Data-Transfer Table toolbar
Note : Get Data and Put Data icons show only when the segment is a List Segment-Type
Data-Transfer Table toolbar
The data is a plot in the Z-Raw Data segment in the motion graph.
Result: MotionDesigner :
•Does nothing if you select less than 5 data-points. MotionDesigner tells you to select more data-points!
•Transforms the data to calculate motion-values that coincide with the motion-values in the segment.
•Numerically differentiates the data to create Position, Velocity, Acceleration, and the Jerk motion-values.
In the Data-Transfer Table:
•You can use the Get Motion Data button or the Get Segment Data button to get the new Position, Velocity, Acceleration, and Jerk motion-values that MotionDesigner has calculated for you from your data.
•When the segment is a List Segment-Type, you can use the Get List Data button to move the original data back to the table.
