A software package for three dimensional wire frame modeling of an educational robot is developed for personal computers. Through this menu driven software package, the user can study basic principles of robot kinematics, programming and work-cell design. The simulation supports both the joint-level and world-level motion commands. Desired orientation and position of the robot arm can be specified through a homogeneous transformation matrix. An option is provided to store several positions of the robot and then display the animated robot motion. Use of this software converts a personal computer into a small scale robot simulation workstation, which can be used by educators, students as well as engineers.
