Team 1114 is proud to release our full archive of CAD files, consisting of the CAD models of our last five robots. You can now find all of our models, along with the associated robot display boards on our website.
Please not that these models have not been enhanced or modified; the models are what we used each season to build our robots. As you will see in the models, several details are omitted in an effort to reduce the amount time to spend CADing as well as model complexity (to increase SolidWorks performance). We essentially CAD just enough stuff so we can begin fabrication. In addition, many of the design changes that are made after parts are initially manufactured are not updated in our models; unless they need to be laid out using SolidWorks due to complexity. As a result, several of our “homemade” subsystems did not make it into the models (such as the pickup & hanger bracing in 2010, minibot & minibot deployment in 2011, dingus mounting & ball elevator in 2012, and shooter floor/roof & deflector in 2013).
Also included are full PDF versions of our past robot display boards, which explain many of the details about our robots. You can learn more about each robot at: http://www.simbotics.org/first/2014
If you have questions about any of our models, you can post them here, or you can contact our team using the form at http://www.simbotics.org/about/contact
