The goal of this project is to build an application to simulate a three-dimentional robot arm. This application will be able to move each part individually or set positions, so that we can animate the movement from one stored position to other position. The whole application will be written in Java using his API Java3D, the VRML models are created using CAD application I-DEAS. This project began as part of the "X-Weeks '03" at the EIA-FR (University of Applied Sciences, Fribourg - Switzerland).
