"I setup all the value coresponding to my 6dof on your plugin."
After that, if your platform is still not moving exactly like in the 3d model, that can be because of different motor spacing and different orientation.
The default motor spacing is 120 deg. for all 6 motors and for the moment can not be changed in the GUI.
The default motor orientation is +30deg./-30deg. in relation to the circle radius for each pair. That's the nature of the most common "In Line" design in our forum.
Providing to the user the flexibility to choose different spacing and different orientation should be considered as a priority in the future development of this plugin.
"I'm not sure , I suppose that the values are in cm"
All values without ° degree sign, should be considered as centimeters except platform/base size, which should be considered in meters.
"- when running test program maybe change also the order surge and sway"
Are you sure? Please test the last version from the post above.
"- when closing the plugin and re-launching the arm value filled was 16 , and not 11 as my setup."
That is the known bug which is present only in the .exe version. As the .dll plugin is functioning well, it's not a priority to correct this for the moment.
I've noticed that .dll version is saving and reading automatically all changed values.
"what was strange is that my arms weren't being full horizontal as my originally setup !!"
After pressing optimize, an algorithm is calculating the best starting position for your platform. a small offset applied is needed for the better motion range.
Each time you modify the geometry you should press it and keep those values.
After that, if your have a non symmetric pitch range, you can correct it by applying a small offset for the surge, in the "center of gravity" column.
To get in an easy way your platform height, you can measure your leg length from joint to joint, than in the GUI press the "show" button, and move the "platform height" cursor until the "leg length" value fits your measurement.
Hope it helps,
I believe the leg length your referring to is 631mm = 63cm
Does the Z axis in the [Coordinates] have any mean?
