move in circle block

Move in () circle of center X () Z () , radius () & along Y () in () in ms block is a stack block available in Robotic Arm extension for evive and other Arduino boards. This block moves the robotic arm’s end-effector in the circular motion in the specified time. 

Input Parameters

  1. Drop down to choose whether to rotate clockwise or anticlockwise.
  2. Circle’s center point on X-axis.
  3. Circle’s center point on Z-axis.
  4. The radius of how big you want your circle arm to carry the movement.
  5. Radius in the Y-axis.
  6. Time to complete the circle.

Note: This block is available in both Stage and Upload mode.


In this script, we will make the robotic arm to first rotate clockwise and then from the same position rotate in the anti-clockwise direction.

  1. Define PWM pins for the servos connected.
  2. The arm will first rotate clockwise from the specified center and then will rotate anti-clockwise.move in clockwise block
