VEX design software

Being a rookie at this sport I believe that VEX should sell software to design a robot. I’ve come up with a design for a claw for the '06 challenge but it’s flimsy and inneficient. Any ideas? I need some designs.:confused:

Use Autodesk Inventor. There are plenty of drawings floating around the internet these days to import all the kit parts.

if you dont have either inventor, or the money to go out and buy it. i would suggest using LDRAW, with the vex packages. it is on this forum somewhere…

A “Step by Step” guide can be found at CAD for VEX™ Robotics Kits.

(Thanks very much, swe9, BTW I am still getting LDRAW setup, so I can try to show my “Super Square Bot”, they I can contribute…)
