The Valor CAD Challenge (VCC) is a 5-day challenge for FTC and FRC students interested in elevating their CAD skills through friendly competition. Participants, competing solo or in teams of 2-3, will be tasked to design an FTC robot in CAD software to compete in a fictional FTC game. Alongside the robot, teams will also have to submit a press release. This a page long document detailing their strategy, design process, and the robot’s mechanisms. These submissions will be analyzed by a set of judges to determine a winner.
The VCC allows for newer FTC participants to experience the rapid problem solving and design phase of a competition season while challenging more experienced members to elevate the quality and effectiveness of mechanisms in a short period of time.
This 5-day challenge will simulate the design process of a competition season while providing a unique hands-on opportunity to strengthen problem-solving skills and CAD design principles through a fun and competitive event.
