I’m looking for better ways to model my robots. A lot of the time, I end up building the base to a robot, then I just try out new concepts that I come up with on top of the base. I realized this is inefficient because it takes up too much time. Is there any available software I could use to prototype robots?
Autodesk Inventor is the best that I have found. The full design package is available to students for free and there are good VEX specific training videos available at the following link ( ). All of the VEX parts are already modeled in inventor (%between%) so all that you need to do is modify them as you would in real hardware and assemble.
Thank you very much. I was trying to find the right software. I think i found it now.
