Any resources for beginners

Hi everyone,

I am Sertac from 8159. This year, I want to develop myself in technical groups such as mechanics. So I need resources for beginners. Do you have any recommendation? Thanks:)

There are tons of resources out there, but check out the RSN Spring Conferences for an immediate fix this week.

Team 3847’s Recommended Reading has links to a ton of resources. I’ve found it very helpful for anything I’ve wanted to just dip my feet in or learn about in-depth.

Thank you so much :slight_smile:

Spectrum Build Blog and other Open Alliance teams build blogs can help you learn the processes that go into going from a prototype to a full robot.

Do you use a CAD software?

Starting this thread was a good place to start. When you start going down the rabbit hole of more common questions (what CAD to use, programming, mechanism ideas, recruiting and training, etc.) be sure to do your due diligence of searching chief delphi BEFORE starting a new topic.

Soooo many questions have been answered and debated multiple times already, so it’s likely already out here.

If you can’t find something, by all means ask away. We’ll be happy to help either directly or post an old topic that you may have missed.

Yes, we use CAD software.

Thanks :slight_smile: :slightly_smiling_face:

Actually I had searched then I created this topic . While my searching, I found some resources. However some of them is very old and some links didn’t work. This is reason why I created this topic. Maybe I did not searched enough. Thanks for your responding. I will be more careful. :slight_smile:

I would totally love to help out if it’s Onshape. I have at least a few posts in threads that could be of interest to you.

Soildprofessor is a pretty good place for learning Solidworks, and it is free for FRC teams: https://go.solidprofessor.com/first-robotics-competition-sponsorship
