Also new this year are libraries of robot assembly models to help competitive teams in FIRST robotics and other platforms such as LEGO, TETRIX by Pitsco and MATRIX. Links to robot libraries can be found here. More examples will be developed as contest rules apply throughout the upcoming school year.
An additional application to SOLIDWORKS Education products is SOLIDWORKS Electrical. SOLIDWORKS Electrical is great to develop 2D schematics, control diagrams and 3D cable/wire harnesses. We also provide educators new lessons for SOLIDWORKS Electrical.
