Title: Looking for some pointers
Post by: richidaho on March 20, 2014, 11:39:02 AM
Hi I'm an older fellow (45) trying  finishing a degree program from the U of Idaho in industrial technology (Idaho Falls campus.) For my final project I have be tasked with righting some lesson plans for a Denso six axis robot that was donated. The robot is now set up and should be running with in the next week. This robot is using wincaps III. I have never programed but I do know some electronics and hardware setup. The only knowledge I have about this robot is what I have found on the net. I need a lesson plan for start up, basic operations, and teaching pendant use. I'm felling a bit overwhelmed because I have only seen vids of the software and the operation of the robot. I'm kind of hopping someone one here can help me out.

It sounds like what you need to do is first actually learn to use it yourself. Make it do something useful (move a pallet from point A to point B or whatever.)
Then, sit down, and figure out what you would need to teach someone to have them get to the same point of understanding as you are.
If I were you, I'd focus on actually making it work and understanding it myself first.
