Motive to LabVIEW Data Streaming

Post by saverill24 » Wed May 20, 2015 5:55 am

I have the NatNet SDK and the set of LabVIEW files meant to pull in the data. I have gotten the files to identify and pull from the (.dll) and recognize the constructors, however no data is showing up. I also got Motive to successfully stream data to the samples in Samples/bin directory in the SDK. More specifically the SimpleClient3D and the WinFormTestApp, so I know the data is streaming out of Motive properly as well. Am I missing a step? Why is the data not coming through the (.dll) file and into LabVIEW if it can run into those other programs? I am fairly new at all this so it is very possible I am just missing some steps, or maybe there is a real error. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Would it be possible for you to post your code?

Here is the NatNet User guide, this might help you get things going.

Have you compared what you wrote with the sample app? We have detailed remarks within the sample app. I recommend reading through a few of the samples.

I cannot post my code and I have read the guide but I am still stuck. Let me add some more detail:

I am jumping into this project after the last employee left. There is no documentation as to where exactly he left off so I am attempting to almost start from scratch. I only have his LabVIEW files with the sample code. The only software I have is LabVIEW and Motive. Is there any other software I need? I know there are MATLAB examples but I currently do not have MATLAB.
