Help for a High School Student
Hi, I am a High School Student who is competing in FIRST Robotics. My team is fairly inexperienced with CAD beyond the creation of simple parts to 3-D Print, etc. This season I took it upon myself to try and design the whole robot in a digital medium to allow for more testing before building in hopes to save material as we are not greatly funded. One issue that I am running into is knowing how to do certain functions in assemblies, (of which I am fairly new to) namely, giving dimensions to imported parts from part library's like AndyMark and VexRobotics. I want certain parts to have certain measurements as some of the imported parts are different to the footprint (measurements) we decided upon this season. Would I have to modify each individual part from their imported part file or is there something that I can do in the main part assembly that will modify the dimensions to what I am looking for. Any help would be greatly appreciated as I am not having to much luck surfing Youtube trying to find a solution. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
