Adding text geometry to a component



The goal of this course is for you to be able to make a part counter component that connects to a sensor and counts products passing, as presented in .gif below. We will start by loading the public system Tutorial: Adding Text Geometry to the workspace.

The system contains three assemblies; Conveyor, Electric and Parts_counter. The assembly Conveyor includes the belt conveyor, motor and the sensor. The assembly Electric contains the cabinet and power supplies. The assembly Parts_counter is empty and will be where we will include the parts counter component that we will create.

The system contains also a product_entry that drops a product every 3 seconds and a product_exit below the conveyor.

The system is ready to start as is, when the emulation is started the motor connected to the conveyor starts and the product entry drops products. In the next lesson we will start to create a counter.
