Move a plate to a new location.

A convenience method for move_resource().


Move a plate to into a carrier spot:

>>> lh.move_plate(plate, plt_car[1])

Move a plate to an absolute location:

>>> lh.move_plate(plate_01, Coordinate(100, 100, 100))

Move a lid to another carrier spot, grabbing it from the left side:

>>> lh.move_plate(plate, plt_car[1], get_direction=GripDirection.LEFT)
>>> lh.move_plate(plate, plt_car[0], put_direction=GripDirection.LEFT)

Move a resource while visiting a few intermediate locations along the way:

>>> lh.move_plate(plate, plt_car[1], intermediate_locations=[
...   Coordinate(100, 100, 100),
...   Coordinate(200, 200, 200),
... ])
  • plate (Plate) – The plate to move. Can be either a Plate object or a CarrierSite object.

  • to (ResourceStack | CarrierSite | Resource | Coordinate) – The location to move the plate to, either a plate, CarrierSite or a Coordinate.

  • resource_offset (Coordinate) – The offset from the resource’s origin, optional (rarely necessary).

  • destination_offset (Coordinate) – The offset from the location’s origin, optional (rarely necessary).

  • intermediate_locations (List[Coordinate] | None)

  • put_direction (GripDirection)

  • get_direction (GripDirection)

  • pickup_distance_from_top (float)
