All the CHARGED UP resources

By now, I think it’s called a tradition. Lots folks make great game-specific content, and I like to keep one resource where we can share it all.

This post is a wiki, so please feel free to edit directly. Attentively, message me resources, tag me in threads, or otherwise let me know. If you do edit directly, please try to follow the format.

I would like to include any game-specific resources (not evergreen/game-agnostic resources) that are created by the community. If any resources are added to the FIRST webpage super late, I’ll include them for visibility. Otherwise folks can get that content directly from the game and season page.

I added the FUN Ri3D stream. If you have others you want listed, feel free to edit the wiki or send to me

We are running an RI3D stream on Twitch and will be posting update videos on Youtube daily. here are the links:

Added this, and an Ri3D section so it’s easier to sort

Are there CAD models of the game pieces available somewhere?


They’re available all on the first download page

For anyone searching for them: go to the field models and download the “CAD models (STEP)” file. (They may also be in the Solidworks download, I did not check.)

2023 FIRST Game Manual copied into PPT Slides to help for Strategy & Design.
Our team always pulls together this PPT to help with Strategy and Design discussions.


@jaredhk this would be super useful to add into the main resources section

I added 4 more Ri3D teams I’m aware of.

Is there a CAD model of the cube jig posted anywhere?

I think this is what you were referring to:

I see the CAD for the game pieces, but not the cube jig that measures the accuracy of the cube’s size.

NDSU is also doing an Ri3D. Here’s the link to the playlist. They are posting small helpful update videos as well as streaming the whole 72 hours and answering questions in chat!

I created a Quizlet study set for our team’s drive test, it has a lot of stuff from the manual that would be useful to know as a student on the drive team (Gameplay, arena, LEDs, point values, vocabulary, game rules, etc.) Would that be helpful to include here as well?

Hi there, could I get our RI3D team added to the list? We are Big Sky Robotics at Montana State University, and this is our first year. Here’s a link to our YouTube livestream: Big Sky Robotics Ri3D Build Day 2 - YouTube
