I had to put the work on hold because of exams, but I’ve now returned and I’m still trying to figure things. I think me and @aryakarani have different implementations of the CableConstraint, since I think I used an old one that came with an older version of the SoftRobots plugin that is not the same as newer documentation shows, so I’m…[Read more]
I’m sorry I took so long to reply, exams forced me to pause work on my thesis and on Sofa, and I deeply appreciate your answer!
I’ve tried both the 1st and 3rd methods, and I don’t think that’s the problem, since the exact same error happened.
For some reason the video record function uses a forward slash after the SOFA folder name…[Read more]

I’m trying to simulate a flexible manipulator that consists of a cilindrical tube actuated by 3 equidistant cables, passing through channels from bottom to top. So far, I’ve used the SofaPythonController setup that is very similar the CableGripper tutorial included in the plugin documentation. I’ve successfully implemented the 3…[Read more]
Let me just staryt by saying that I am relatively new to the SOFA world, and I am currently working on my master thesis in Soft Robotics using SOFA. The framework is amazing and I feel that it largely outgrows my needs and skills!
My issue is that I need to record a small video of my simulation. I’m using the latest binary that…[Read more]
