This sub-team designs the entire robot from start to finish using SolidWorks, a computer-aided design (CAD) program. During build season, the SolidWorks team designs the basic frame of the robot as well as a competition-specific manipulator for the year.  (In 2013, this was a Frisbee shooter; in 2014, it was a very powerful flipper.)  This sub-team also creates other competition-specific items for more minor challenges. When these designs are completed and all measurements have been recorded, these drawings are passed to the mechanical and assembly teams.
