The Computer Aided Design (CAD) guild uses SolidWorks (CAD software) to create 2D and 3D models of our team’s robot design. Students on this team verify that the robot will properly fit together and meet our weight limitation requirement of 125 pounds. The team produces detailed part and assembly drawings for other guilds to use to manufacture the robot. Competition season is short, and the CAD team must complete the initial robot design quickly. In the past few years this has led them to time-crunch and work uninterrupted for several hours during the start of the season.
