Summary

This paper describes a project carried out to program a PUMA 560 robot off-line from a CAD/CAM database. A database was developed with the aid of input by the user via interactive Basic computer programs. Suitable algorithms were incorporated in these programs to extract sufficient information from the database to program the robot off-line.
