Also new are Hands on Tutorials for SolidWorks, SolidWorks Simulation SolidWorks Electrical, SolidWorks Composer with the help of our customer SeaBotix. The link to these tutorials can be found in the Getting Started document in the 2014August KOP at

We are preparing the 2015 KOP to be released at kick off. Now is the time to apply for sponsorship and learn about these robot software tools.

Thank you Blue Cheese for sharing your robot with the SolidWorks Community and thank you SolidWorks interns from WPI and Northeastern University that created this tutorials and documents to help out teams everywhere.  Marie
