Build / CAD Sub Team

  • Start learning Solidworks.
  • Install Solidworks on your home computer. Click here for information on doing this.
  • Start taking online Solidworks classes. Watch videos and start modeling using Tetrix components.
  • To get practices on doing this, a few interested students should start to model the pushbots in Solidworks.
  • Work with coaches to organize Actobotics parts. We do not want to have the parts laying all over the place. Come up with a way to organize bins or other organizers to put the parts in. The following requirements should be taking in consideration when designing the storage.
    • Portable… small parts should be in containers that we can easily carry to a event.
    • Labeled in a way that we can easily find what we need quickly
    • Visual… we can even put picture on whatever you want to use.
