Welcome to Built by Design, a series of videos created to teach FIRST students how to effectively use Autodesk Inventor. Created by FIRST students, this series is meant to help teams improve the efficiency, completion speed, and accuracy of their designs. You just learned how to efficiently generate a robot frame, but how do you know if it will stand up to normal wear and tear on the competition field? This video shows how to use Autodesk Inventor’s frame analysis tool to simulate how well your frame will withstand an impact. Until next time, good luck out there.
