How to add an irregular bin into the Mech-Viz software and do the simulation?

Usually bin walls are of the same height. And this is what has been already done in Mech-Viz. But if the bin walls are of different height. How can we load in this irregular bin into the Mech-Viz software and do the collision check simulation?

The bin is shown in picture below.

For bins with bin walls of different heights, we can use four cuboids to build the walls of the bin according to the actual bin wall sizes.

  1. Click to add a scene object.

  2. Configure four cuboids as the walls of the bin based on the actual bin wall sizes one by one.

The following figure shows an example of a bin model with bin walls of different heights.

The level of the four cuboids under the Scene objects needs to be adjusted based on the dynamic bin functionality requirement:

  • If dynamic bin functionality is not required, the four cuboids are on the same first level under the Scene objects, as shown in the figure below.

  • If dynamic bin functionality is required, the four cuboids are on a subordinate level of the bin, as shown in the figure below.
