The DOBOT Magician is a kid-friendly, multi-functional desktop robotic arm able to grab, write, engrave, solder, and 3D print. Targeted to both children and adults, the DOBOT Magician is user-friendly and safe for human contact. Still, it is affordable and compact, fitting almost any desk. It dramatically improves teaching efficiency providing an immediate yet pleasant learning experience to anyone. The great hardware and software interplay along with the overall excellent performance earned it the CES 2018 Innovation Award and iF DESIGN AWARD 2018.

The DOBOT Magician is engineered with a visualized programming interface, which includes a drag-and-drop feature for simplified work with code. This means it can be easily deployed from an application to another by anyone in no time. The machine shows a rugged design made of anodized aluminum alloy and ABS engineering plastic, which makes it durable and lightweight. The device can be equipped with several end tools, being able to perform multiple tasks, namely 3D printing, laser engraving, drawing, pick&place, and more. With several DOBOTs, you can even build a small conveyor belt for advanced robotics experience. IT features seven different controlling methods for more convenient use and effective communication.

The DOBOT Magician is available as a part of basic or advanced educational kit. Used by Tsinghua University, Shandong University, and the University of Technology Sydney as well as by industrial companies, like Volkswagen and Alibaba, this smart robotic arm might be a good addition to your workflow.

Processing quality

The DOBOT Magician is a cost-effective 4-axis desktop robotic arm. The positioning repeatability of up to 0.2 mm is a remarkable feature for the price. The arm is engineered with an accurate stepper motor with a gear reducer for smoother operation. It can lift objects weighing up to 500 g. With 250 g of workload, the rotation servo joint can reach a maximum speed of 480°/s, all other joints feature a maximum speed of 320°/s.

The DOBOT Magician supports secondary development through more than 20 programming languages and 13 programmable I/O ports, allowing for a variety of improvements and applications.



The DOBOT Magician supports a variety of end-use tools. According to the task, you can simply replace the tool, teach the arm how to move, and start working. Indeed, it can easily turn into a 3D printer, a laser engraver, a vacuum gripper, a drawer, and more.


Pick and place

The gripper module works in a range of 27.5 mm. It features a pneumatic drive type with a force of 8N. The suction cup has a diameter of 20 mm and a pressure of -35 Kpa. 

The arm is capable of picking and placing products of up to 500 g with high precision.


3D printing

Able to print with PLA-type materials, the DOBOT Magician creates custom models with a resolution of up to 0.1 mm.

These Pokèmons are a great example. We gotta catch ‘em all!


Laser engraving

The DOBOT Magician includes a 405nm blue laser with a power consumption of 500mw. It includes 5 Kraft liner papers to start engraving right out the box. It is capable of producing accurate results with an acceptable amount of details.


Writing and drawing

The pen holder supports up to 10 mm in diameter. It is capable of writing and drawing anything you want, providing high design flexibility.


Working range

The arm has a maximum reach of 320 mm, which allows performing a variety of different tasks with various tools. The axis movement varies from joint to joint. The base rotates within a range of -90° to + 90°, the rear arm rotates from 0° to +85°, the forearm from -10° to +95°, while the rotation servo form +90° to -90°.

As a 3D printer, it features a print volume of 150 x 150 x 150 mm.


Robot controls

The DOBOT Magician provides 7 controlling modes with handy functions. Suitable for both newbies and experts, it offers easy-to-use controls (drag & drop interface) as well as more advanced ones (serial port SDK and motion control interface). You can operate the arm via PC, mobile APP, Voice, Leap Motion, Gesture, Vision, and Mind Control EEG. This means you can manipulate it by Programming, APP, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, Mouse input, and more. It can be developed with several programming languages, ROS, PLC, Microcontroller and Arduino.

In terms of software, the machine includes some programmable and extensible I/O Interfaces, including UART, Reset, Stop, 12V, 5V, and two I/O.

The robotic arm works with several applications, including DobotStudio, Repetier Host, Grbl Controller 3.6, and DobotBlockly (Visual Programming editor). It also supports a couple of Software Develop Kits, namely communication Protocol and Dobot Program Library.
