To use the code, just run and enter a number between 1-9 to select one of the predefined robots in the code. They are rotary beam, planar 2 DoF manipulator, SCARA, Spherical robot, etc. The degree of freedom of them varies from 1 to 6, but it must be compatible with the case number. The dynamics of robots lower than 4 DoF are computed fast though, above 4, you should expect more time to see the results.
The notation of the code could be followed in [1] or [2].
The robots are defined between lines 109-354, you may add your own in the proposed format.
The derivation of dynamics is coded between 357-437.
The presentation of the dynamics is the rest of the code between 439-460. For robotic arms with lower than 5 DoF, you can see the output in the command screen and use it. For manipulators with higher than 5 DoF, the command window is not able to print all of them. So, you may find the dynamics in the saved output text file “Output_Manipulator_Dynamics.txt”
For the sake of speed of computations, the simplify command was removed from the codes for manipulators with more than 4 DoF, lines 445-448. If you want to see the compact form of the output, you may add a “simplify” command for them as well, but you should remember it is so time-consuming.
