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.
Riley Lordon & Savannah Johnson, juniors at Cazenovia HS took what they learned in Computer Integrated Manufacturing (CIM) class last year and brought it to life in Michigan this week. They presented “Industrial Robots in the Classroom” at the SME Headquarters in Southfield Michigan to many members of the SME Education Foundation as well as their sponsors.
They built a robotic workcell which simulated a grinding operation that included an electric turntable parts feeder that they made, a grinder made out of VEX components, and a Dobot Magician robot. It was a closed loop system that used inputs and outputs with the Dobot to complete the task and then palletize the final product.

Great to see more girls than boys at SME Education Foundation headquarters!
The E in STEM also stand for English as well as Engineering! Here's a Haiku to prove it.

How do I get started with DobotStudio? There really isn’t much info out there yet on how to use my Dobot Magician Robotic Arm.
Well, first off, here’s just the tip of the iceberg…. more to be added as I figure stuff out. This robot can be taught and record points quickly and easily, and is also the most accurate and affordable educational robot on the market. Here is a start to some basic ways to get going with a really incredible software/hardware combo that is DobotStudio/DobotMagician. See the tutorials below… Most of them not much over one or two minutes… Use Control + F to find what your looking for!
The Home position on my dobot Magician makes the robot hit the table. Is there an easy way to change what the robot calls the home position?
Of course you can! Here is how. Go to Teach and Playback and physically move the Dobot Magician arm where you want the new home position to be. Then hit the “+point” button for the position to populate into the interface. The right click on your position and click “setHOME”. This new position will now be the home position of the robot
