A new tool ExternalCoordinates3D is introduced in Scorpion 188.8.131.521.
The ExternalCoordinates3D is used as a modification/correction for 3D camera calibration in Scorpion.
When doing a 3D calibration in Scorpion using the Calibrator3D tool, a robot is normally not involved. ExternalCoordinates3D will help you easily set up the robot coordinates:
- Calibrator3D + ExternalCoordinates3D -> robot coordinates
Similar to ExternalReference3D, the tool setup consists of a set of coordinate pairs, Local and External. In the Local fields are the object (or robot) coordinates, and in the External fields are measured coordinates. The tool will create a best match between these pairs.
Note that in addition to positioning the 3D coordinates, any inaccuracies in the robot or other equipment will also be compensated for. This tool introduces a correction matrix not available from any other tools
