Spoiler Alert: BattleBots Wins with SOLIDWORKS

Another amazing season of BattleBots has come to an end, and it seems to keep getting better every year, with more contestants, more bots blowing up, more high flips, and more…well, SOLIDWORKS teams making it further in the competition.  I don’t want to spoil the show for you, and I encourage all of you to go watch the finals on Discovery Channel.

We were very proud to have sponsored three of the four finalists in the semi’s and finals!  It honestly made it difficult for us to cheer on a winner.

If you are a BattleBots + SOLIDWORKS fan, I would encourage you to check out the recent SWUGN meeting in South Florida, which included two BattleBots teams (one which was one of the final four teams) presenting on how they use SOLIDWORKS to design and constantly improve their robots for competition.  You can check it out here:
