  • How to run a program with the loop and the step function.

Create a new program

  1. Open the Program Overview.
  2. Select New Program button in the upper right.
  3. You will see the Builder.
  4. Give it a name on the top left text field, e.g. Move Test.

Arrange the program flow

  1. Add a Move Cartesian function block.
  2. Select Set Parameter on the added function block.

Please read first the trajectory wizard tutorial for further information.

Tip: Change function blocks titles

You can change the name of any function block or subprogram in the program flow by clicking on the current name. For example name a Move Cartesian block Homeposition.

Tip: Search function blocks in the library

You can use the search filter in the library for localizing function blocks and better sorting.

Run the program

  1. Finish creating your program flow.
  2. Now select Save & Run.
  3. You will go automatically to the Runview.
  4. Press the run-button Run-Button to start the program.


Make sure there is no red box around the function blocks. Red boxes indicate missing parameters.
