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

I have just purchased 8 of them for my classroom to use within my robotics class.
