In a nutshell…we have been working on getting the software installed as a testing means and have no issues running the software in a profile that has admin rights. However, as I am sure you are familiar with…students don’t get admin rights to their profile…and so it prompts for credentials to run, when a student login is at the helm. Is there a way to get DobotStudio to run for students who do not have admin rights?
wow! This is an easy one! Thanks to Christian Hunter fromInPosition Technologies; the Leader in Dobot sales in the US. For more information or to buy Dobot Magicians go HERE. Here is Christian’s solution:
Yes, there are 2 versions of the software. If you run “DobotStudioX” it doesn’t require admin rights. It should be at this, or a similar location, depending on where they saved the software on their PC.
Do you have any ideas for ways to teach students about parts feeders in industry?
Imagine a project that incorporates VEX pneumatics, 3D printing, CAD design, and Robotics all in one! That’s exactly what we did here. I taxed one of my students with this “Going Beyond” activity: Design a pneumatic parts feeder using what you have learned in CIM class so far, and here is what he came up with!
The browser in Inventor is ok, but is there a way to show more detail?
There sure the heck is! Thank Jim for this obscure trick. He must sit around in his free time and look this stuff up! Just go to the Tools tab, click on application options go to the part tab, and check the display extended options box as seen below. The details that are revealed can be seen in the screen capture below too. This will give your students an idea of what you did to get the part!
