Look at these pictures. Do you know how these objects acquired their logos, images, or messages permanently?
Drill 4 holes as pictured 2.5 inches apart each way, making a perfect square.
Screw on 4 rubber bumpers in each corner.
Insert four 5/16x3 Hex Bolts.
Stand on the rubber bumpers and screw on the 5/16 nuts.
Here is where we can perform a simple exercise using Dobot. Showing the many uses of robots in manufacturing and the precise settings needed by robot programmers.
Program Dobot to screw on some or all of the bolts and drop the plates precisely on top.
Here we used a board underneath to prevent the ornament holder from moving in the glass surface for this exercise.
NOTE: you do not need the board underneath.
You can also have a partner help holding the plate still while you get Dobot to precisely position the nuts and start the rotation process.
The metal plates can be bought at hardware stores. Sometimes you may find them separately other times you may find them only included with stainless steel U-Bolts as pictured.
Notice in this video the precise movements and rotations Dobot needs to perform in order to screw in the bolts and place the plates.
You will discover that when it comes to engineering or manufacturing precision is very important with robotics. Not just does do the mechanics have to be precise but the programming as well.

Start DobotStudio and click on Connect first then Write & Draw
Select Laser as your end-effector
Click on Input Shapes and select happy face.
Resize the face to 32x32. The right click and select “center” to center it.
You are now ready to start with laser!
REMEMBER! Laser safety glasses first.
First we need to adjust laser to proper Z height and the focal point. Keep in mind, if you want a pristine outcome, that for this procedure you might want to use a spare wood ornament as your laser adjuster because it will get burned in the process.
Check mark the laser button. This will turn ON the laser. With your glasses on, you will notice the laser focal point might be very wide.
You want to reduce it to a very tiny focal point that starts to burn. You may do so by moving the arm up or down with the Z +/- buttons on the operation panel or adjusting the lens at the bottom of the laser box. Be careful!
Once you have accomplished the tiny spot. Turn OFF the laser by un-checking the button.
Click on the AutoZ button to lock in your height and then on the SyncPos button to position the laser to the starting point.
You may want to replace your ornament with a pristine one before pushing start.
If you are ready, click on START and you should see just as shown on video.
You may need to adjust speed if to slow or to fast.
