Owning Palette: Simulator VIs

Requires: Robotics Module. This topic might not match its corresponding palette in LabVIEW depending on your operating system, licensed product(s), and target.

Use the Offline Configuration VIs to create and edit manifest files from which the robotics simulator reads to display simulated components. Using these VIs to create a simulation instance is an advanced feature. If you do not need to include custom components in the simulation scene, use the Robotics Environment Simulator Wizard instead.

Palette ObjectDescription
Load Simulation InstanceReturns a reference to a simulation instance defined in a manifest file. Use the reference with Property Nodes to access and edit components in the simulation instance.
New Simulation ObjectCreates a new component for use in a robotics simulation scene you can render in the robotics simulator. After you use this VI to create a component, wire the output to a Property Node (Simulation Engine) to access and define attributes of the component.
Property Node (Simulator Engine)Gets (reads) and/or sets (writes) properties of a simulated component. The node operates in the same way as a standard Property Node.
Save Simulation InstanceWrites definitions for components in a simulation instance to a manifest file the robotics simulator can read.
