VEX V5, VEX IQ and VEX Cortex
Robot Mesh Studio has now added V5 support together with VEX IQ and Cortex; making RMS the only programming choice supporting all three platforms.
No V5 hardware? No problem. Create a mimic project to program a virtual robot with physics simulation. Create a project now with a simple V5 chassis (Blockly, Python or C++)
Robot Mesh Studio is free to use online at https://www.robotmesh.com/studio. V5 support is available with the Chrome browser on Windows 10 or on Chromebook. (Mac and Linux support coming before the end of September).
Robot Mesh Studio provides three choices for coding your robot:
Blockly – familiar drag and drop block programing. Straightforward for beginners, but with powerful features including: functions, lists, undo/redo and threads. See generated Python code side-by-side.
Python – easy to learn, yet powerful object-oriented language
C++ – industry standard programming with the highest performance. Preemptive multi-threading supported with our FreeRTOS implementation. Vex classes for motors and sensors compatible with VEX Coding Studio C++ Pro, so copy/paste your code between RMS and VCS.

We’re not done
Our team is working on continued improvements to the software, documentation and examples. Look out for more announcements soon!
Please send feedback directly to firstname.lastname@example.org, or in the forums.
We’re thrilled to support VEX with the V5 launch. We can’t wait to see what you build and code!
