As competitive robot teams continue to push innovation in electro-mechanical design, the SolidWorks Education Community responds with our SolidWorks Sponsorship for robot teams such as FIRST Robotics (FRC FTC FLL), AUVSI, ASEE, ASME, and IEEE featuring the SOLIDWORKS Robotics Suite.
The summer we have been working hard as a FIRST Robotics Crown Supplier to develop specific FIRST Robot Tutorials. The SolidWorks Robot Suite is available to all FIRST teams at www.solidworks.com/FIRST.
With the Blue Cheese FRC 1086 robot, we recreated the 2014 KOP to be smarter than ever featuring SolidWorks Electrical. Get ready for the 2015 season. Download the revised August 2014 KOP at www.solidworks.com/FIRST to try out SolidWorks and SolidWorks Electrical.
The SOLIDWORKS Robot Suite features
SolidWorks – 3D CAD for modeling, drawing, costing and photo realistic rendering
SolidWorks Simulation – for stress, motion and flow analysis
SolidWorks Electrical – 2D Control and Schematic and 3D Wire Harness
SolidWorks Composer – Technical documentation and Animation
New this year,
YouTube video series featuring 25 videos on how to get started with SolidWorks for your robot.
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 www.solidworks.com/FIRST
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
