    3D printers home at the start of each job. Makelangelo could do this, too.

    There is one potential extra benefit. We could add a line of code that says “Makelangelo has just turned on and not homed yet, send an error message if it is asked to move anywhere.”

    There is a rare case where Makelangelo reboots unexpectedly while talking to software and, when it finishes rebooting, continues to receive messages and try to process them. Of course after a reboot it has no idea where it is and assumes it is at home position, which is wrong. The rest of the drawing after that is also wrong. So if, instead, the robot sent back “woah hey I just rebooted I’m not ready”, the software would stop sending commands and warn the user.

    What do you say?
