We did it! We made a dobot magician talk to another one and make it start. We even added a VEX switch as an input to start the first one. It is easy to do, but one word of caution:
Never connect or disconnect any wires to the dobot while it is powered on; always power it down first. Damage may result!
Ok, now on to the good stuff. If you bought your dobot through InPosition HERE, not only did you get a $100 discount, you get access to the documentation to make this happen for free! just email us! This includes worksheets and wiring diagrams.
Tony Koppers, my senior EDD student has done all of the legwork to make this happen, so special thanks to him!
We have found a way to get a Dobot Magician for teaching in your classroom! All you have to do is go to InPosition Technologies here: https://www.dobot.us/ and when your district makes the purchase, use the code chrisandjimcim for $100 off and free shipping!
NOTE: We do get a portion of all sales that are generated using this code, and it will be used to pay for this website.
The other advantages to buying it here using this code:
US warranty work is done here in the United States.
They sell spare parts and accessories that are shipped from right here too.
Access to Word Doc Activity files as they become available
Access to the 3D print and laser cut accessory files as seen in the videos like the pneumatic parts feeder and the pallets.
I have just purchased 8 of them for my classroom to use within my robotics class. As I develop activities, I will also share all of them, in Word Doc format for all of you who use the code to purchase a robot. I will also share the files for any of the 3D printed and lasercut accessories that we make for it in the classroom. Very easy to program, and very powerful software that can TEACH as well as RECORD. The software is free and requires no code. Download it here. See the quick video below!
