I am using a UR10 model robot with two sanding tools connected to it (Robotiq). Our operation process requires a sanding process applied, then a buffing process applied after. This will be used for flat, wood surfaces. We have added a proximity sensor right next to our tooling without interference, and the first part of the program uses that sensor to calculate the length and width of the board present, while referencing a zero point. 
I am trying to figure out a way to bring the 'width_mm' & 'length_mm' values into the 'Path Generator' function of the UR Caps, while not bringing any other language such as Python involved. I am currently working on a simulation process through Python & RoboDK at the moment to possibly help improve and speed up the process. 
I realized this isn't much info to go off of but any help would be appreciated.

    Hello @mkoester2,

    Good news for your project, we are actually working on this for the next URCap release. We are now in the Beta phase and it should be release within the next weeks or months. I don't have a specific date but it is coming soon.

    You will then be able to modify the 4 points in the path generator with your proximity sensor measuring the length and width. Within only one program, you will be able to adapt the path with different part dimensions.

    Hope this helps.
    What is your timeline for your project?

    Regards.

    Hello and thanks for your reply.
    The timeline is within this next week. This is a fairly simple project, but I am still in college and for the company I am working for, this is just a practice to get the robot ready for final installation.

    Good morning @mkoester2

    Unfortunately, it won't be released right now. 
    Have an eye on the DoF platform and on our website. I don't have an official date now but it should be released soon.

    Regards.
