Our CAD team focuses on designing our robots using Computer-Aided Design. The subteam uses a specialized software called Solidworks to bring their ideas from sketches to 3D models. They use the engineering design process to create parts, mechanisms, and assemblies in Solidworks. Once the parts are designed in CAD, they create technical drawings which the mechanical team uses to fabricate the parts and put them together like Legos. The CAD team teaches students to solve problems, learn industry-relevant software, and learn effective communication skills.
