2019-2020 PTC CREO TRAINING


Renaissance Robotics is truly honored to host our fifth annual PTC Training Event --- now with VUFORIA!


Sunday, September 22, 2019, we'll have several hours of training available. Don’t miss this wonderful opportunity.


TESLA UNIVERSITY

UCF's Barbara Ying Center Conference Room

  • 8:00 am - Doors open for computer set up. Class starts promptly at 8:30 am.
  • 8:30 am - 12:00 noon - PTC Creo & Vuforia (mentors & students)
  • 12:00 noon - 1:00 pm - LUNCH BREAK
  • 1:00 pm - 4:30 pm - Volunteer Training  (adults only)


We have plenty of room with 100 seats available. Due to the nature of this event, there are several steps in the RSVP process. Please be sure to follow ALL of them.  


Please complete the following steps to make sure your team gets the most benefit from this event:


1. Register on FL FIRST.   http://ftc.flfirst.org/index.php/season/event-registration  ASAP.  Remember to print and bring your team roster or waivers with you to check in at this and all FIRST events.


2. Send us the following:

a. team number and name

b. the number of students with laptops, (please list first names)

c. the number of students without laptops, (please list first names)

d. the number of mentors with laptops, (please list names), and

e. the number of mentors without laptops, (please list names)


NOTE - this is a hands on / interactive class. You WILL be using CREO. It is most effective if ALL your team members in attendance have their own computer vs sharing one with their team mates.  Unfortunately, we dont have extra computers available. We suggest asking everyone associated with your team (parents!) if they have one they can lend their kid.


We only need the information on members of your team that you would like to attend. 


You are NOT registered until ALL parts of the registration process have been completed. You will receive a confirmation email within 36 hours.


First Come First Served basis

As you can imagine this a great opportunity for training. We expect seats to fill up quickly.


3.  Download needed CREO materials & configure it for the schools configuration


Software for FIRST teams is provided by PTC.  All attendees will need to download PTC Creo and configure it for the schools configuration (directions are included once an attendee registers for the software). 



Prior to the Workshop:

Please download and install PTC Creo 5.0 (NOT 4.0 or 3.0 which you may have used in the past) onto the laptop you plan to use during the webinar or in-person workshop


Download PTC Creo - - https://www.ptc.com/en/academic-program/products/free-software/creo-download  This can take awhile, so please do not delay.

Please download and install the training curriculum, titled “How to Model Almost Anything” onto the laptop you plan to bring to the workshop


How To Model Almost Anything - http://apps.ptc.com/schools/How_to_model_almost_anything.zip


4. Download the Step Files for the build system your team uses.


4a. Download the 2015 FTC TETRIX Kit of Parts here to ALL of your laptops compliments of PTC:


You can find the Tetrix Kit of parts files here - http://www.catalogds.com/db/service?domain=first&command=browse


You may also find the models for this years field & the Matrix kit of parts on that same page, if your team needs them.


4b. Download Actobotics Step files 

https://www.servocity.com/step-files


4c. Download the REV Step files



Please double check that you have done ALL parts of the 5 step process above BEFORE arriving at the Tesla's University training to have your install verified.  Remember to bring your laptop with FULLY CHARGED BATTERY to that event.



Coaches, please make sure YOU have verified that all of your teams computers have all the necessary items installed. Installation can take a couple of hours, we can not hold up the training day for others if your install is not correct.


Remember to get the most out of the workshop, you should have CREO, the FTC kit of parts, Tetrix or Actobotics Step files and the How to Model Anything parts installed. This process can take a few hours so please plan accordingly and take the time to check that CREO is working properly on your laptops. You won’t have time to do this at the workshop on Sunday. As soon as you arrive at the workshop, please boot up your laptop and open CREO; class will begin promptly!

 

If you need assistance, please let me know as early as possible.
