Not directly related to Autodesk, but related to CAD is the software OpenSCAD. The link OpenSCAD. This software allows users to build parts without a GUI. Also, this seems to be the program of choice for parameters parts on Thingiverse.

The 2015/2016 summer and build schedule lives as a Microsftware Project folder. This can be viewed using Gnatt, a cross platform schedule program. The file is stored on the team's google drive and the link is: 2016ProjectFile
Google now has an app for viewing MS project files.
In Ric Roberts' presentation on System Engineering he recommended a free scheduling program. I've copied the installing program onto the FHMS web site, there are the link: Gnat Project Software. The link for the program's web site is: Gnat Project Web Site. The program can be used to read and write Microsoft Project sites and their own format as well.
These page is to to be used to document all aspects of the teams 3d printer 3dPrinter.
Andy-Mark base kit:
Andy-Mark has bumper kits:
One idea I had for a light weight joint was to use a flexible drive shaft. McMaster-Carr has some good quality ones that are pricey. We might be able to find replacement for the McMaster-Carr ones that are less expensive.
Here is a new arm joint kit from Andy-Mark:
Some useful links related to manipulators.
Talon Controller Notes
I copied over the Talon documentation off of the AndyMark web site.
The Talon is a different object in the WPI Java library than a Jaguar, although it is initialized the same way and has the same methods. SPECIAL NOTE: The RobotDrive object in the WPI Java library assumes Jaguars, so it won't work with the Talon motor controller. We will need to create our own RobotDrive object if we go to Talon controllers for our drive system.
Short story on the Jaguar motor controllers: don't use them.
This page has the notes: Jaguar Notes

The FMHS Drop Box was set up by Ken Hurst and is a 'cloud based' storage system. We are using it to store our 'private' files. Our 'public' files and 'public' information goes on the wiki. Transitory information is exchanged on our 'FMHS Snobotics' facebook account. To use the dropbox you are required to register. I'll send out new links to everyone today. By 'inviting' people we get more free storage on the dropbox folder.
By having the dropbox link on your computer any files updated are mirrored on your computer. You want to be careful about what files you put on the dropbox folder on your local computer, since they will be mirrored on everone else's computer that have access to the FMSH dropbox folder.
If you have any questions, just e-mail my at Robert.D.Steele@jpl.nasa.gov or give me a call at 818 396 6277.
