Dobot Discovery: removing attachments safely

One of the advantages of Dobot over other robotic arms is the diverse array of attachments that come included in the system. This robot can manipulate objects with a gripper or suction cup,  draw beautiful designs with robotic precision, 3D print, and even laser engrave! Best of all, switching between the functionalities is as simple as replacing the end attachment.

Dobot - The suction cup bug scenarios

As we work with our new products, it’s not uncommon for us to find small bugs and issues that we don’t see documented elsewhere on the internet. When that happens, we work hard to find a solution or workaround, and post it to this blog
