I never used CommunicationController so I looked a bit in its c++ source code.
It seems is possible to communication more data by specify the *template* attribute.
node.addObject(‘CommunicationController’, name=”sub”, listening=’1′, job=”receiver”, port=”5558″, nbDataField=”4″, pattern=”0″, template=’Vec3d’)
This is an interesting topic. Despite being a working solution I think hijacking the class name is definitely not the way to go. In Sofa the Event class was not design to have an “emitter” information. But a subclass of Event called ScriptEvent is specifically doing that. I don’t know if the ScriptEvent is usable in your case and if it is…[Read more]
Small news about that topic…
Yinoussa (from Defrost) made this week a preliminary pull request to Sofa. The aim of this PR is to able to manipulate Eigen matrices in sofa Data field.
It is there: https://github.com/sofa-framework/sofa/pull/1499
A second work should coom soon to expose Eigen matrices in Python. One difficulty we have with…[Read more]
We decided to work directly in the master branch of STLIB. There is now a python3 directory there with preliminary work. Far from finished, but if some want to help they are welcome.
There is no support for sparse matrices in the binding yet (lack of time more than technical difficulty). As you pointed out, pybind11 has the proper machinery for that.
The problem is that, to detect the BaseData you want to store in is really holding a Data<Eigen::Sparse> we rely on the AbstractTypeInfo mechanism… which requires to…[Read more]
Damien Marchal replied to the topic Error In Running SofaPython3 in Conda Environemtn with Python3.83 in the forum Programming with SOFA 1 year, 4 months ago
About SofaPython3 and Conda the problem seems to be at the initialization of the plugin (where we initialize the python3 interpreter). Maybe, but it is only a guess, there is a mismatch between the version you use for compilation and the one shipped with Conda. On my computer I tend to only use apt and pip3 to install python packages.…[Read more]
Few month ago I was doing screenshot using python3. For that I was using pygame to open a window with an opengl context then the SofaPython3 functions to build control the simulation and trigger the sofa rendering into this opengl context.
This was more or less looking like this:
def doRendering(display, t):…
Last week there was new change in Sofa to stop fetching eigen3 but rely on the use of the one installed on your system. Maybe you could try this option.
This was merged in https://github.com/sofa-framework/sofa/pull/1281
Maybe you should try this version.
Hi Abdelrahman and eaparra,
Thanks for posting,
The problem probably happens since activated the support for the C++17 version of the c++language. The change was done just two weeks ago (precisely in PR https://github.com/sofa-framework/sofa/pull/1249). You are right that this problem may be related to the compiler/cmake version.
I will open…[Read more]
Using the python binding is what we also did in SoftRobots.
We made some easing functions in the
It was quickly made bit as I like the API I share an example of it:
“””Unpack the data from ros to Sofa”””

Damien Marchal replied to the topic SofaPython3 – Compatibility with SofaPython and other plugins in the forum Using SOFA 1 year, 9 months ago
SofaPython3 can be used with problem with SoftRobots but the examples as well as the STLIB have not been updated so they will not work anymore.
The big difference are in how to implement the ScriptController (because we have extended it a lot) and how to access the data fields. There is no initGraph anymore, in general the work…[Read more]
At DEFROST for grabbing of the screen we are using SofaPython3 and pygame. The rendering of Sofa is done in an openGL canvas using pygame. As we have full control of the simulation and rendering loop we can grab individual frames that are plug that into a machine learning algorithm.
I have not a lot of time to provide code for that but…[Read more]
Damien Marchal replied to the topic RigidMapping from Rigid3d to only some particles of FEMbody in the forum Using SOFA 1 year, 10 months ago
At Defrost we are using Rigidification to do so. This will associate a rigid frame to a group of deformable dofs. As this is rather complex to implment we are using some helper function to do so. The functions are implemented in STLIB.
I highly support the idea of the SofaAward. So anyone using Sofa don’t hesitate to submit your work to the award. It can be big plugins, tools, framework or something more “simple” like the best sofa simulation you made with all the data/mesh/texture to run it.
See you in Paris.
thanks for your questions
Given the error message you are reporting says that there is no runSofa application visible. This means either the compilation didn’t went well or the runApplication is not in your “PATH” (if you don’t know what the PATH is: http://www.linfo.org/path_env_var.html). To check if the compilation did…[Read more]
I’m not very aware of the MOR plugin I think Felix or Olivier are better suited to answer.
But to give a bet I would say that the binary version is be shipped with the extra tools (including sofa-launcher) and the documentation for MOR was written for the source based version of Sofa (so taking as granted that…[Read more]
Hi @sayan, sorry to reply late, thank @hugo for the poke.
So to answer your first question, yes we are connecting physical robots to Sofa.
The simplest technical solution is to use USB->Arduino->motors. You can find pieces of explanation for this part in our tutoring web site: http://handsonsoftrobotics.lille.inria.fr/
Once you have an…[Read more]
