Synthesis is a simulator for robotics teams to design, test and experiment with their robot models.

Synthesis: An Autodesk Technology

Synthesis: An Autodesk Technology is an open source robotics simulator built by students for students.

The team is made up of high school interns that are members of FRC or FTC robotics teams in the Pacific Northwest. Synthesis was created to bring awareness about 3D modeling and robotics design in the FIRST community. Teams can export their robot CAD models through plug ins for Inventor and Fusion360 to test their designs with driver practice, robot code emulation, strategy and more.

Vast range of applications

Check out what you can do with Synthesis!

  • Strategic design

    Importing CAD files, you can simulate an infinite amount of fields and robots to both strategize and test various designs.

  • Testing code

    Is your fabrication team spending too much time on the robot? You can now test your code without your physical robot.

  • Driver practice

    Practice driving before competition season. With driver practice mode, there's no excuse to not be ready.

  • Open source

    Synthesis is built by the community, for the community. You can mod it to suit your needs or even add new features for future builds!
