FIRST Robotics Team 1706, the Ratchet Rockers, will compete this weekend (April 26-29)
in the FIRST Championship in St. Louis, MO.

The Ratchet Rockers completed in 2 events this year. In Huntsville, MO they qualified #4 out of 50 teams but lost in the quarterfinals. In their other event in St. Louis they qualified #2 out of 52 teams and ended up winning the regional which qualified them for the Championship in St. Louis.

Team 1706, the Ratchet Rockers

The robotics team is based in Wentzville, MO (just northwest of St. Louis) providing the opportunity to the kids in the Wentzville School District and pull students from 3 different high schools. They have approximately 50 students on the team and 6 full time CAD students as they started the school year.

One of our accomplishments this year is a great shooter

FRC mentor Mark Roberts was looking to expose the entire team to Autodesk Inventor and to address the learning needs of the existing experienced CAD users on the team. Mark planned on running a classroom led “Inventor 101” class but was in search for a solution where the students could access and learn independently after their class.

i GET IT and Tata Technologies are proud to be able to sponsor the Ratchet Rockers and provide the much needed training material. Supplying the team with 50 i GET IT Autodesk Annual Subscriptions, the entire team had the opportunity to learn Autodesk Inventor and any of our other Autodesk offerings independently and at their own pace.

One of our accomplishments this year is a great shooter. I believe we are somewhere around the 20th best robot in the world (approx. 4500 teams) when it comes to scoring shooting fuels (balls).”  said Mark Roberts of his team.

Following their regional win the team prototyped new and better functions for the robot so they can improve their chances against the 400-500 teams that will compete this weekend.

Here is video of this year’s game. Look for robot 1706, the one shooting all the balls.

 

Good Luck this weekend Ratchet Rockers!

au-2016Autodesk University 2016

November 15th – 17th

There is no better way to connect with your peers across the world than attending a conference like Autodesk University. It’s a valuable chance to talk with people about your circumstances face-to-face. With attendance of over 10,000 users, you have an opportunity to meet up with people who may have already solved your dilemma – or at least understand it like you do. After the conference ends, you’ll walk away with some insight to the question “Are we doing the best we can?”

I’m a 25-year veteran of large user groups like this one, and I still find them very useful. It’s true that they are costly in terms of time and money invested; however, with the right attitude and an agenda in hand, you will reap plenty of rewards. The key is to do your homework prior to attending.

Your company has invested a lot in your software, and attending a conference provides valuable market insights into where your industry and its technology are going. There are thousands of classes, roundtables, and industry-specific events running, not to mention all the main stage presentations. In addition to all the above, there are always vendors attending to show off solutions designed for the technology or products you are most likely utilizing. Walking the floor and uncovering technology you did not know existed is a valuable investment of its own.

So how can you make sure you’re getting the most out of your trip?

Make and document a plan

It’s going to be a fast-paced event and each day is full from breakfast to late evening. Make a schedule and have a checklist – it’s easy to get sidetracked. Also take an hour or so off, away from the event, each day to recharge.

It’s a company event

Have meetings before you leave and again after you get back. What did everyone learn? What were the most valuable sessions? Give attendees a chance to share lessons learned with their team members who didn’t get to attend.

Have the checklist with you

Make sure you are achieving all you set out to do and track your progress.

Document

Take a lot of notes and pictures, and don’t be afraid of networking and exchanging information, even if you think you’ll remember it later. Don’t be the guy that gets home and says “I wish I had asked for a business card!”

Follow up after you get home

Develop a professional relationship with the people you met. Connect via email, LinkedIn, and stay connected.

If done right, you and your company will truly benefit from the investment; it’s an opportunity you can’t afford to pass up.

Oh, and one more thing…

Come see Tata Technologies at Autodesk University!

We’ll be at Booth #1644 with product experts, i GET IT online training, and lots of goodies. If you’re attending the conference, stop by and say hello. And if you haven’t registered yet, we have a Halloween treat for you: through October 31st you can register here and put in our special discount code – 300AU16REFAT – to attend at a discounted rate of $1,875!
