FRC 2012 Kit of Parts and Field

It's ready!! You can now go to www.autodesk.com/first and download the Kit of Parts, including the FRC 2012 Competition field.

Let me know if you have questions on opening the files or if there are any parts in your kit that are not available as Inventor models.

Re: FRC 2012 Kit of Parts and Field

Is there any way we can get a STEP file of the field?

Ty,

As per my note on the SW forum, it will be posted in 30 minutes. In the meantime I am sending you the file. Look out for a YouSendIt message.

Re: FRC 2012 Kit of Parts and Field

Frustration with the autodesk supplied kit of parts.

i've downloaded the zipped files from autodesk, unzipped them, I can see assemblies when I preview assemblies within inventor. yet when I attempt to open the assembly file I recieve an error message indicating missing paths!

I teach this every day, I use inventor every day, the path seems correct, and I have the appropriate project file set up.. yet I cannot open assembly files from the downloaded files thanks to unresolved links??

Re: FRC 2012 Kit of Parts and Field

Hey-

If anybody still needs the HiGrip FIRST Wheel CAD, you can get it, as a STEP file, from AndyMark here. To do so, go under "Files and Documents," then download the "6" HiGrip Wheel CAD File (.stp) (right click, save as)". Once that has been done, Autodesk Inventor can open the file, then resave it in the proper format. It won't be the right material/color, but it is the right shape.

Re: FRC 2012 Kit of Parts and Field

When I try to open an assembly/part I get the message "Error in reading RSe stream". I can open the STP file of the Field though.

Re: FRC 2012 Kit of Parts and Field

Sounds like you are using Autodesk Inventor 2011. The 2012 KOP files cannot be opened in 2011.

Re: FRC 2012 Kit of Parts and Field

I have checked and reposted the Drive Base Kit on the Kit of Parts.

Also, the wheel is posted as an Autodesk Inventor assembly file under Drive Train.

Let me know ASAP if you have any issues and I can resolve them for you.

Re: FRC 2012 Kit of Parts and Field

Really, Inventor 2012 only?
My school decided not to upgrade, and everyone is still on Inventor 2011

What are our options?
Just use 2011 KoP?
Open in 2012 and save as something (STEP files?)

Re: FRC 2012 Kit of Parts and Field

Our school is licensed for Inventor 2010 only. We're unauthorized to install the 2012 version. The kit of parts for this season requires 2012 to open the parts. Can you recommend a way we can get versions of the drawings that will work with our version of the software?

Re: FRC 2012 Kit of Parts and Field

The Kit Of Parts from 2010 is still available on the Education website. It will resolve most of the needs you have for robot parts. In addition, companies such as AndyMark and VEX are very good at posting STEP files of their parts which can be opened in 2010.

Try this and let me know what, if any major parts you are missing.
