Creating build instructions

Hi, is there a tool available for creating build instructions (similar to the ones available on the VEX website for models like Striker etc.)?

My team few years ago took part in some Lego Mindstorm competition and with “Studio 2.0” program we could design our own designs with an automatically guide builder.

I don’t know if exists a method to import vex pieces to this program or for the other hand if exists another similar solution where you can import your own pieces :thinking:.

Fusion 360 works nicely you can even create assembly step movies. Capture screen shots of exploded views etc.

Thanks, yes - I have started down this path.

This is related, but maybe a new topic, but I’ll try here first anyway. Does anyone know of a naming convention to describe the various holes on a C-Channel? E.g. “hole 2 on center of long side of 1x2x1 c-channel”. I’m going to make one up, but if one already exists that would be better. I couldn’t find one searching the forums …


Pictures or diagrams might be better, I could see those getting really confusing when referring to the ones on the flanges: “13th hole when the flat side of the c-channel is held to the left”
As far as I know there is no naming convention though

There is no general naming convention. In this case, I find a picture works best.
