Dark Night of the Innovator Ends Well

Graph of TDT Design Progress

Graph of TDT Design Progress

A few of our Team Duct Tape members remembered this graph of “The Dark Night of the Innovator” shared by FIRST founder Dean Kamen, when he was the keynote speaker at a PTC Users World Event they attended a couple of years ago.   And all of them felt  their robot design process, at least one aspect of it, followed the wavy line pretty closely, ending their meeting yesterday on  a celebratory “It Works!” note.

Hopefully it will work well enough to try out at the upcoming Tempest ‘n’ Tampa event on October 23 &  24, where there will be a practice field and a scrimmage, if enough teams sign up.

We also took a break to enjoy our Windows 7 House Party, and team members got to

Let PTC help guide your robot design to success. We offer multiple resources that will help you better understand PTC software and how to use it to your advantage.  We understand that having relevant, easy-to-use training material is critical for teams to adopt and successfully utilize our software and, most importantly, have fun with it! Here are just some of the many resources that PTC has to offer to FIRST teams:

  • Updated “Getting Started” Guides
  • ·Bi-Weekly Recorded Webinars
  • Regional Hands-On Workshops
