Last year there were problems we had with storing the computer files on our computers. We were told that there would be some design and work with the autodesk vault. Team 514 is just wondering if that will be made available to teams this year so that we can store files and share files more easily than the flashdrive system which is very unconvient. Any help or thaughts are welcomed! Thanks so much inventor is the basis of our robot.
We haven’t used vault due to our schools network but Dropbox has worked well to keep the files in sync and they have 30 days of revision control. Easy to save and forget about it knowing it will be updated online.
According to the FRC 2011 Game manual, the 2011 Autodesk KOP was supposed to be released yesterday, I wasn’t able to find it yesterday or today. I searched the KOP archives and the 2011 Autodesk toolkit to no avail. If someone could link me to the KOP as well as the new blog, along with this year’s award specs, it would be much appreciated!
What all is included on the 7 discs that we got in the kit of parts? I saw something about system requirements being like a hundred gigs. So I’m wondering what all is included since I can download Inventor from FIRSTbase and need way less room than that.
I think you are referring to the software bundle you received in the Kit of Parts. This is your software for the season and includes Autodesk Inventor. At this istage, just install Inventor and the Content Center, you do not need AutoCAD Mechanical.
Thanks Phil, I appreciate it! Also, what is the link to your new blog, and where can I find the specs to this year’s excellence in design award (there wasn’t much information in the game manual, as usual).
Thank you (Autodesk) for providing vault this year. I wanted to set this up in the off-seasion but could not get my hands on it off the student community website.
Now that I have the vault disk I can move forward but I do not see a product key for vault or inventor or autocad for that matter. Are we supposed to get a key off the student website? I have downloaded my copy of Inventor and the latest key for this year but I was expecting a product key with the packaging.
Any information you could provide would be much appreciated.
