FRC 4905 Get Ahead with DriveWorks Solo

FRC 4905 Andromeda One are using DriveWorks Solo to configure and design the initial drive train for their competition robot.

Andromeda One have created a DriveWorks Solo configurator that allows them to choose from a set of parameters including length, depth, height, gearbox, gear ratios and wheel types.

The FRC team make the selections and DriveWorks Solo creates the models based on the options selected.

The CAD models are completed sooner, meaning the hardware team can get started on building the drive train earlier in the build season – giving Andromeda One a head start on other teams.
