Building block tutorial

Hi again,

Thanks for the quick response for my last question. (Who is it that
answers these questions by the way? John? Arne?

Anyway, the problem of the moment concerns the building block
tutorial. I’m in lesson 2. I’m at the part where I’m supposed to get
the following error:

ERROR : Repository\BRep\Aalborg\Leg3D\Leg.root.any(12) : HipNodeRef :
Unresolved object.
Model loading skipped

Instead I get:
ERROR : C:\Documents and Settings\Laura Jennifer Fick\My
Documents\Tilak\AnyBody\Repository.5-Beta\BRep\Aalborg\Leg3D\Seg.any(199)
: . : Name lookup points out of Main.

Double clicking on (199) highlights:
r=…HipNodeRef.sRel*…Trunk.SegmentsLumbar.PelvisSeg.Axes’+
…Trunk.SegmentsLumbar.PelvisSeg.r- HipJoint.sRel*Axes’;

Since both errors deal with the hip node, I assumed it was due to a
software version change, but upon proceeding through then next 3 or 4
steps, the error stays the same while in the tutorial, the errors are
instructive and point us toward what to fix next.

Am I doing something wrong or is this what I’m supposed to get?

Thanks,
Tilak

Hi Tilak,

It may be due to the new version handling errors differently than the
old one did. The internal differences between these versions is
really much larger than they seem on the surface. If the error
message for this case has changed then we need to get the tutorial
updated.

However, it is more likely that you have made a typo somewhere. Could
you zip the ARep files of your model and upload them to the files
section of the group? Then we will take a look at them and get back
to you.

Best regards
AnyBody Support.

  • who in this case is John. Different people in the group answer
    depending on who has time and the nature of the question. Most times
    it is our support manager, Soren Toerholm, and me, but it can also be
    some of the software people if the question is regarding a bug.

The files are in a folder labeled “Building Block”

Hi Tilak,

Thanks for the uploaded files. It turned out to be a little more
complicated than we had expected. The problem is that the revised
structure in Repository version 5 does not agree with the tutorial.
So you have to use version 4 of the Repository for this tutorial,
which you can download from www.anybody.aau.dk.

Once version 5 gets officially released we will have to update the
tutorial. Using building blocks is actually quite a bit easier with
the new repository, so we can probably shorten the tutorial.

Best regards,
AnyBody Support.

Ok, so that fixed my problem. However, I have a new problem. For some
reason in Lesson 3 of the building block tutorial, I can’t see the
RefNodes. (In the tutorial they show up as red dots - I don’t see any
red dots when I zoom in on the foot). Is there a command to make them
visible?

Thanks,
Tilak

I forgot to mention that I uploaded all the files to the group (titled building
blocks - lesson 3)

Hi Tilak

I am sorry about your problems

In the repository 4 the nodes are not visible by default, but it is
easy to change this.

If you want to see the nodes on the foot please open the following
file

BRep/Aalborg/leg3d/seg.any

Then in the foot segment add the following:

AnySeg Foot = { (Please find this line and insert the code below)

AnyDrawNodes Drw={
RGB={1,0,0};
ScaleXYZ={0.005,0.005,0.005};
};

This will make all the nodes on the foot segment visible as red
spheres having a radius of 5 mm.

Best regards
AnyBody Support

Hi Tilak,

Try inserting an AnyDrawNodes here:

AnyFolder HumanModel = {
#include “Body.Model.any”
Seg.Foot = {
AnyDrawNodes drvn = {
RGB = {1,0,0};
};
AnyRefNode FootBall = {
sRel = {-0.015, -0.05, 0.0};
};
};
};

Best regards,
John

Hi,

I would like first to thank John for his reply (Positions &
Drivers). My model works fine now.

I’m trying to make another model following the building block
tutorial. My model has to represent :
- a person standing on a plate which is moving (with a motor),
- this person handles and pushes a grounding bar (not drawn) with
two hands,
- this person doesn’t have to move arms, shoulder and head.

To reach a good starting position I have modified the Mannequin.any
file.
To create the plate and his move and to ground the feet on it
(joints commented), I have modified the environment.any file.
To free the model I have modified (commented) the
JointsAndDrivers.any file.
I tried several joints for my feet but it didn’t work (tolerancy or
number of constraints).

Could someone help me, I’m lost.
I upload a zip file of my repertory which is based on the
StandingModel of the 6th repository.

If someone ask me, I could give more informations.

Thank you,
Fred.

Hi Fred

I have changed a bit in your model and uploaded a new one
FredModelV2.Zip

In the Environment.any ile I have added a handle bar segments which
the hands are attached to using spherical joints.

In the JointsAndDrivers.any file I have added two spherical joints
between the hands and the handle bar

The feet are now driven wrt. to the plateau using 3 linear and 3
rotational drivers between the heel and the plateu right and left
handles.

The pelvis is now driven using 3 linear and 3 rotational drivers
between the global ref and the pelvis, so the pelvis will stay fixed
at a certain height above the center of the plate.

All drivers of the legs has been out commented since we drive the
pelvis and the feet 100% there is not room for any drivers on the
hip knee and angle this would lead to a over constrained problem.

Similarly I have removed the drivers for gh flexion, gh rotation and
elbow flexion to make up for the added spherical drivers in the
hands.

Please search for AnyBody Support in the files and you will find the
location of the changes.

I hope the model, moves in the way you intended now.

Best regards

I have been trying to follow the building block tutorial pedal model,
except I have imported SpineRightArm instead of RightLeg. My model is
still kinematically indeterminate and I’m at a loss as to what still
needs to be driven and/or fixed. I have driven and/or fixed the
pelvis, the thorax, the neck, the hand (to a wheel), the wrist (as the
ankle is driven) and the elbow (as the knee is driven). However, my
model is still kinematically indeterminate. Any suggestions? Is
there something I am missing in the spine that I need to fix?

Thanks,
Sarah

Hi Sarah

It sounds as you are missing driving a dof in the model, the arm and leg has
a different number of dof so you will need more drivers for the arm than on
the leg.

If you are using a model of the spine and the right arm you need to make
sure that the following dof are driven in some way:

Spine:

Three rotations between thorax and pelvis (3 dof)

Flexion of the neck (1 dof)

Arm:

Sterno clavicular joint SC 3 Rotations (3 dof )

Gleno humeral joint GH 3 rotations

Elbow flextion FE 1 rotation

Elbow pronation supination PS 1 rotation

Wrist joint 2 rotations

From your description it may sounds as that you do not drive the elbow
pronation supination.?

So I think you should try to count the drivers you have added to the model
and see if the number of driven dof. match the number of dof in the model. I
often do a small stick figure when doing this to better visualize it.

Best regards
