You can plot the data that is in the Data-Transfer Table as a dumb graph, together with an existing motion.
We call this dumb graph an Overlay-Trace.
It is not possible to edit the Overlay-Trace.
We use an Overlay-Trace to compare the data that is in the Data-Transfer Table with the motion that you can edit.
E.G. : It is often useful to get the motion-data from a different motion, and to show it as an Overlay-Trace in the active motion.
To show an Overlay-Trace
1.Make sure there is data in the Data-Transfer Table (see Prepare the Data, below)
2.Click the Overlay-Trace icon
The plot of the data will show as the Overlay-Trace together with the active motion.
3.Click in the graph. The active-motion and the Overlay-Trace will rescale to their maximum and minimum values.
To hide the Overlay-Trace:
1.Click the Overlay-Trace icon again
The plot is removed.
Prepare the Data.
You must have at least 5 data points
The data should be in the Data-Transfer Table, as follows:
•The Position data should in Columns 2 and start at Row 0.
If these data are available:
•Velocity, Acceleration, and Jerk data should be in Columns 3, 4, and 5, respectively, al starting at Row 0.
