Unlike common array function, LayoutByPath distributes object copies along a path (curve) with a variety of array options. Users can choose random, division and measure options and array in different directions along the path.

Benefits of LayoutByPath
-Easy way to distribute object copies along a path.
-Efficient distribution options such as: random, division and measure.

You can access to AreaSum from:

Menu:Express tools > Edit > Layoutbypath Command Entry:Layoutbypath Ribbon:Express tools > Edit > Layoutbypath

For example on mapping drawing, we can apply this tool to array the discontinuous central axis of the road or highway as shown below:

As it is showed, designers can adjust the angle and length of the object at will and distribute them along the path by the options of random, division and measure; it's very easy to distribute object copies along a path and efficient for highway designing.

ST Robotics - R17HS-6, the 6-axis version of the high speed R17 variant

The 6-axis version of the R17HS high speed variant of the R17 robot is now available. As is our policy the 6th axis is an optional bolt-on module. At the same time we have made it even faster and new software eliminates shake and greatly improves repeatability as this video shows. Please see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3wG0MeiJ-yE. The video would seem to imply a repeatability of 0.01mm but we are sticking with 0.2mm in the spec. The motor specialist was able to tune the motors from the other side of the pond. My first reaction when we put power on and entered the first commands was to jump back in amazement (and maybe an expletive). Tip speed is now 3m/s; that's 3 times as fast as its nearest competitor yet costs half the price. I love it when a plan comes together.
