RDP 040: Animating Industrial Robots with Blender with Alexander Rossler
Hi ROS Developers and welcome to the ROS Developers Podcast: the program, the podcast that gives you insights from the experts about how to program your robots with ROS.
This is Ricardo Tellez, from The Construct.
Today, I would like to dedicate the podcast to all those ROS developers working with Industrial robots that do not have ROS interface and they have to keep using the factory SDK. We are sorry for you, and we hope this situation changes in the close future.
Today, We are going to interview Alexander Rössler. Alexander is a solopreneur providing services for developing embedded systems and HMI at his company Rossler Systems. He has a very interesting blog called Machine Koder (with K) where he posts about development for robots using open source tools. Recently, he published a post about how to use Blender to animate industrial robots, and that is why I thought it would be interesting to hear his whys and hows about that subject.
“Using Blender with industrial robots is useful when you want to move the robot in a specific certain way”
