After creating a part you may want to run it starting from a specific point, as opposed to running from the beginning. We provide two ways to accomplish this and this guide will walk you through the process of setting and unsetting the start point.
Let’s get started!
Setting the start point from the part screen
A starting point is indicated by a green play icon in the upper right of the point’s icon.
Setting the point
Click and hold (or touch and hold) the point’s icon.
The green play indicator should appear at the top left of that icon and the previous icons should be grayed out.
Unsetting the point
Click and hold (or touch and hold) the starting point’s icon.
The green play indicator should disappear.
Setting starting point from the point details
Click (or touch) the point to open the point details.
In the details panel, click the “Start Here” button to set it.

The green play indicator will appear on the point if it's on.
To unset, open the details back up and click the “Cancel Start Here” button.
When a point is set as the starting point, the robot should start from that point each time the part runs.
