The FIRST Robotics Competition Award for Excellence in Design Award Sponsored by Autodesk will be part of the competition season again in 2012. Once again, we will offer students the opportunity to enter in the 3D Design and 3D Animation categories.
•3D Animation students can get started with the Autodesk® 3ds Max® and Autodesk® Maya® Learning Paths and to help you prepare for the 2012 competition season. We are making a few changes this year, and we are really looking forward to seeing what teams will do with the challenge this time around!
•3D Design Challenge this year will be new and innovative! HINT: Just do as much “Design First” as you can so you are ready for what we have in store.
More information will be available on Monday, January 9th at 12pm PST, don’t forget to check back then!
We have also created a new Facebook group that is focused on Autodesk Resources for FRC 2012, you can request to join here: http://www.facebook.com/groups/autodesk.first/
(The Group will be opened to the public on January 9th, but for now you can request to join)
To teams and mentors participating in the 2012 Excellence in Design Award category…
We are experiencing some delays in being able to post the 2012 Official Rules, and will be posting them in the next few days. Please don’t worry about deadlines, the timeframe for the competition will be adjusted accordingly. We will be posting new training resources for 3D Animation shortly as well.
Thank you for your understanding and support, we will be communicating with you on a regular basis about this.
Several ways to get to the information so I will share them all.
www.autodesk.com/first, select the 2012 Award tab and click on the link for the “Digitial STEAM site”. There you will find a link “Go To Project Packet”, click and then locate the “3D Files” on the top of the page under the little red tab.
