CA1529C - Ultra Fast Design Process Rockets High School to a World Championship

Powered by Onshape, the MHS Red Hawks Robotics program used a highly collaborative, ultra-fast 8-week design methodology to qualify for the FIRST Robotics World Championships through a series of progressive iterations. This was only possible by shedding their legacy desktop modeling platform to maximize the use of valuable student and mentor time. FeatureScript and master sketches helped design reliable robotic systems for shooting, climbing, driving, and more. The students were able to 3D print and CNC carve to make their own parts, as well as partner with a volunteer local manufacturer. Students segmented the design into subsystems. From four-bar intakes to fly wheel shooters, team members are now able to iterate on any design while staying cohesive. Onshape makes it all possible.
