What are some top debugging suggestions?
• Test the motion simulation in SolidWorks first, before trying to control it with NI LabVIEW. Also check the properties of each motor in SolidWorks to make sure all of the motors you plan to control with LabVIEW are set to Distance mode. • You may want to review the step by step instructions in this getting started tutorial. • Make sure the SolidWorks Motion add-in is active. To do this, navigate in SolidWorks to Tools->Add Ins and mark the check boxes on the left and the right of the SolidWorks Motion item. • Make sure the Scan Engine is enabled for your LabVIEW project. By default, it is not enabled. In the LabVIEW project, right-click on My Computer and got to Properties. Then go to the Scan Engine tab and make sure the box is checked next to Start Scan Engine on Deploy. You may also want to set the Scan Period to 5 ms or 10 ms if it’s not already. If the value is between 5 ms and 10 ms you’ll get a warning message when you deploy but this is typically okay for motion simulations.
