This summer eight students from different FRC teams worked together to create Built by Design (BXD). BXD is designed to eliminate the common problem of FRC teams only having one to two CAD designers on their team. Our goal is to lessen the learning curve of CAD and give teams an alternative workflow for the brainstorming process to expedite and increase student involvement in the brainstorming and design process. Ideally, with our process teams will be able to fully design their robot within the first week of build season. To implement this program we have created an easy to use website that will attract new users and veteran users alike.
The Website Includes:
-15 short tutorials covering the entire design process: brainstorming, digital prototyping with Fusion, and detailed CAD using Inventor
-Share, download, and review designs
-Easily download Autodesk Inventor and Fusion
-Accelerate your design with the new 2012 FRC CAD Library
-Ask and answer design and CAD questions
-An Organized parts library
