This workshop will introduce three different options for CAD software. The hands-on demo will be in OnShape and show how to use a virtual kit of parts to design your robot. CAD drawings can be included in your engineering notebook and can contribute to several of the judged awards.
The University of Victoria is hosting a series of workshops to help FIRST Tech Challenge teams learn the skills for designing, building and programming robots. Most of the workshops will be lead by FIRST alumni who are current UVic students. Workshops will be either in the Engineering and Computer Science (ECS) building or the Engineering Lab Wing (ELW) building.
This workshop will be held at the University of Victoria on Friday afternoon October 4 from 4:30 to 6:00pm. The location is not currently known. Please register for the session so we can email you when the location is known.
For this workshop, we’ll be using OnShape. Here’s the link if you want to check it out in advance and create your own ID.
We plan on live streaming each workshop on the FIRST Robotics BC YouTube channel at: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCjqJ09AW-_NL0e1OKSSqVNA
Students should register individually rather than as a team. Please register for in person attendance or the live stream at: https://forms.gle/fvgwP5TN9eLtf5tK8.
We’ll be sharing links to the kit of parts used for the demo with everyone who registers.
