I am designing a custom robot similar to the AR3 in layout but larger with servo motors and have been looking for a way to control it. I want to combine the control scheme of the AR3 program with Robo DK. I see in earlier post people were saying they could not export a program to the AR3 software. However when I look at post processors inside Robo DK I see "AnninRobotics" listed as a post processor. Perhaps this is new?? I don't know how to use either program at this point so I am starting from scratch. I want to know if anyone has tested this post processor before I spend the time and money buying and learning to use RoboDK. What I like about the AR3 is I can layout my robot dimensions in the software and there is a corresponding hardware controller via the Teensy etc. Are there other hardware/software options you guys know about regarding controlling a custom Robot? I have a pretty decent budget for this so it doesn't have to be DIY level stuff. I have extensive mechanical design experience but lack much experience on the programming and controls side.
Other helpful information: I use Solidworks for mechanical design. I see RoboDK has a plugin for solidworks so that's what lead me to them.
