Quick Start Guide
STEP 1 :
|Download Software and Install Arduino Driver|
1.Download software from our website: dobot.cc/download
2.Install Arduino drivers. You can download Arduino from www.arduino.cc or directly from our website.
DobotTools：Basic version, including functions of Teach & playback, writing, drawing, laser engraving and mouse control. Download
DobotApplication：Professional version, two more functions comparing to basic function, leap motion and EEG.Download
check whether Arduino is installed properly in Device Manager
STEP 2 :
1.Connect the stepper motors according to labels (Stepper_L, Stepper_R, Stepper_rot ) on the black cable. Note: Stepper_L and Stepper_R subject to right ahead Dobot body
2.Connect the angle sensors: loosen the neighboring screws before inserting the sensor modular.
3.Connect the servo
Note: servo cable connection order: orange to white; red to red; brown to black.
4.connect air tube and suction cup
5.connect power cable and USB cable

STEP 3 :
1.Put Dobot in the following recommended position
Info about the recommended position:
When Dobot is powered up at a limited position, it will be locked up and not capable of moving.
The angle sensors have more accurate readings when it is positioned in less than 45° regarding the horizontal plane, which gives a good start for Dobot.
Info about Reset: Dobot requires a reset to get the current angle sensor reading after powering up
STEP 4 :
|Run the software ( DobotApplication/ DobotTools ) and Play!|
Operation instruction of software interface
1 Jog Mode: you can set Axis Mode or Linear Mode.
2 Jog Button: hold the button to move robot.
3 Velocity Ratio: change the jog velocity.
4 End Effector Operation: Turn ON/OFF the pump or OPEN/CLOSE the Gripper.
5 Current State : A table showing current joint angle value, coordinate of end, and default MotionStyle and PauseTime
6 Playback List: table of saved points, which can be edited.
7 Save: add a point to the playback list
8 Start/Stop: start/stop playback
9 Import/Export: import(export) the playback list from(to) an .xml file
10 Loop Number: set how many to repeat the playback list;Current Loop: index of the loop has been sent to controller
11 Velocity Ratio & Acceleration Ratio:Set the velocity/acceleration ratio for playback
Step 5 :
|Let's Play !|
Click Range①,change JogMode to liner mode.
Place one small object(such as mobile phone) near Dobot, click Range② to operate Dobot and move above the small object, then click ⑥,open the pump, and the small object will be sucked up.
Click ⑦ to save one point
Now turn back Range ②, click Z+ firstly，then raise the height of mobile phone, next move Dobot on another place, place the object on desk, click ⑥, close pump at last.
Click ⑦ to save another point
Click Z+, place the object to original location.
Click ⑧ start, task for moving the object from current location to another location is completed successfully.
