Come and see a demonstration on how to use the Forge Viewer to visually control and program a real robotic arm. Using cloud technologies, this is possible from any part of the world where you have an Internet connection. We'll go through all the steps necessary to achieving this, including modeling a real robotic arm into the 3D world using Fusion 360 software; preparing the 3D model for in-web-browser visualization; and connecting the real robotic arm to its 3D model. Using the Forge Viewer, we can customize the experience with controls necessary to manipulate the robot (both the real and the virtual one). This proof of concept could be easily transferred to industrial robots and other machine types for visualization, remote diagnostics, and even manipulation.
