Purpose: Research on robotics needs a robot to experiment on it. The actual industrial robot is costly. So, the only resort is to use a Robot simulator. The RoboDK is one of the best robot simulators now. It has covered most of the popular industrial robots. Its interface is straightforward. Just open the software, download the robot as we need, and start experiments. Up to that, no issue was found anywhere. However, the problem begins when we want to build the simulated robot by own. Lots of complexity arises like coordinate assignment, rotation not aligned, length mismatch, robot not synced with DH parameter. We begin to find some documents for making the robots. A few bits of the document are present. That is why we research it. After doing that, we prepared this paper for the researcher who wants to develop the simulated robot independently. This paper can be referenced for them. To minimize the complexity of our research, we study an industrial robot, ABB IRB 120-30.6. It is a good and popular robot. It is six degrees of freedom robot. We will use the specification and STEP file from their respective website and build a simulated robot from the STEP file for our research purpose.

Design/Methodology/Approach: We will create a simulated robot from ABB IRB 120-30.6 STEP file. To create a robot by own, we took the help of the IRB 120 robot model. To demonstrate as simple as possible, we start with that robot whose default design is already present. We match and tune the joint coordinate based on robot parameters through this experiment.

Findings/results: Here, we see how to create a custom robot. Using the IRB 120 robot model, we will create a robot model step by step. Furthermore, it will move it around its axis.

Originality/Value:  Using this experiment, the new researcher can get valuable information to create their custom robot.

Paper Type: Simulation-based Research.
