Colleagues in Autodesk’s Office of the CTO (OCTO) – who work in the robotics lab on Pier 9 – have just released the code for a new tool called Mimic.
Mimic is an open source plugin – with the Python code posted on GitHub – that allows you to simulate and control the use of a number of industrial robots (including various robots from ABB and KUKA).
Here’s a screenshot:
I’m really happy to see OCTO releasing open source projects in this way. If you’re interested in contributing to the project, be sure to check out the developer notes. There’s also a Slack channel you can join, to see what’s happening in the community.
Maybe Mimic might even be used to make robots dance? :-)
