Default Changing the height that a Transporter drops off an item to a Processor

I have a similar problem:

How to change the location where the transportor will unload a flowitem to a processor? By default the loadiing location of a processor is at the bottom right of the processor

If you are talking about the z drop off point an easy way is to play around with the shape factors and size of the object inside of the properties window so that the object stays the same size but the bounding box is bigger, no code to write. If you want the transporter to go to a specific area of the object you should use network nodes and not allow offset travel. Make sense? That is how I would do it.
