I highly recommend onshape. It is easy to use, has great tutorials, and sharing files is simple. We have been practicing with it for a month now and have found no issues. The free educational version is really quite amazing.
Hi Joybattey,

If I remember correctly, NSO is looking into alternative softwares. Most tournaments (as of now) are using FreeCAD; BEARSO used FreeCAD and the upcoming Scilympiad Practice is also using FreeCAD (I'll also be using FreeCAD when supervising at Yosemite). Some states are also using their independent softwares such as TinkerCAD or Onshape, so make sure to check with your state to see what you will be using. I saw that you said that you and your students are practicing with Onshape, which although is nice, wouldn't be too beneficial if FreeCAD was used.

Edit if people ever read this, Yosemite has switched to Onshape.

Hi Joybattey,

Just confirming that we are planning to use OnShape for Boyceville invitational. Do you have a link to the exact process to be followed?

Yes, we are. You should have received preliminary info from Andy in mid October. I will send a more detailed document to Andy today and have him send it to all coaches so you can review the details with your students and ask any questions ahead of time. You should also have received an email from Andy on Saturday with a link to a Google form that needs to be filled out so I have email and login info for your students. If you aren't receiving emails from Andy you can contact him to get added or maybe they went to another coach on your team? Thanks for asking!

I created a document in OnShape for beginners. It's got some building block parts and a few simple models. Search for it in public documents using Science Olympiad or WICI.

I've put together a Write It CAD It instructions manual for tournament directors, event supervisors, coaches, and students. Specifically, the programs used are Onshape via Scilympiad.

Thank you so much for creating this document. I was actually planning on doing this myself but hadn't had time yet. I'm glad the method we each came up with is very similar! Thank you for all the time you put into this!
