Team 5881 is in the unique situation where we don’t have a computer lab with CAD machines, but rather every students has a laptop. This is particularly because the district is not a district with every student within 10 or so miles, but rather the population of the school is made up from students all around NY’s capitol district. Because of this, the team uses Fusion 360 for all robot CAD, as the cloud save feature works easily for those not working off a dedicated server at the school, and the software is light weight enough for us to work on integrated graphics. It gets slow when the whole assembly is open, but other than that we get it to work for the amount of CAD we do.
Granted, I’m in college now and have training in Solid Edge (The Blue team in the Red V Blue with Solid Works) and how to use it in industry. Fusion 360 is no where near a proper CAD program, so if industry standards are what you are looking for, I would not recommend it. If your team is just drawing up parts for reference before production, and you might need the occasional STL or DFX for any CNC work, then Fusion is a good candidate. That is the type of CAD work 5881 does (although now coming back to help mentor the team, I am definitely going to try to push away from some of the bad CAD habits we/I had developed, our training was mainly a DDP class and binging different CAD tutorial channels on YouTube.)
