For the new game i want to design a potenial prototype in CAD. I have good knowledge on Autodesk Inventor I was wondering how to go about that and what advice you would all have.
I’ve just started cadding robots as well. All you really need is basic knowledge of assemblies and a good part library. Try to get a library with circular holes inside the square ones, it makes mating parts so much easier. It’s also fairly time consuming, but definitely worth it.
Where can these circular-holed parts be found?
I got some if you want. I posted them somewhere else a while ago, I’ll see if I can find where…
please do! id like to CAD a robot for my team, and any parts to make it easier would help
If you can, that would be pretty helpful. I’ve had a little trouble with joints when the holes are square.
This paper has information and links about CAD modeling. The library with circular features is one I created for Solidworks. AutoCAD libraries have something similar called imates.CAD for VEX Robotics.pdf (199.4 KB)
Here you are, I didn’t make this, I got it from @Sylvie but here it is
This is awesome (he says not having opened it) the square holes with rounded corners in the other libraries make assembly a nightmare.
no problem! It helps a ton.
