Edinburgh University
Formula Student

Comprising of students from various cultural and academic backgrounds, Edinburgh University Formula Student comes together each year to construct a F1-style race car: a truly cutting-edge piece of automotive engineering! After the design and assembly process, we participate in prestigious international competitions with other university teams from around the world. Our team is composed of people from various disciplines – engineering, business, and marketing. We offer students to put their knowledge to practice, to be part of a model company and for some – to achieve a dream.

EUFS - CAD Workshop 2 - File Management

This session will go outline how we as a team manage our CAD files and how to set up Solidworks to work with our templates and libraries of components.

Also, we are aware that a number of people can not make Wednesday afternoons due to the 1st year maths tutorial. Therefore could you please complete this doodle poll ( https://beta.doodle.com/poll/un7kuabytgz2zhh3) to see if there is a more suitable time for future sessions.

EUFS Team Induction

We'll be introducing the structure of the team, technicalities of each subteam and our goals for the year. You will learn how all of the different parts of the team coordinate towards building the car and what each subteam actually does (in more technical detail). This will also be an opportunity for some of our new members to relocate to a different subteam. Additionally, people who did not get accepted into Class 1 will see how they can contribute towards our Class 2 team.
Again, this will be followed by one of our world famous socials!

Although this event is geared towards new members, everybody is welcome to join us, learn about building race cars and share a drink with us afterwards!

EUFS - CAD Workshop 1 - Introduction

A quick reminder about our workshop today. This session will be an introductory one suitable for everybody and you are welcome to join even if you aren't an EUFS member!

This is the first in a series of sessions we will be hosting to help you learn how to design using Solidworks.

If you have already paid for membership please email me at s1324209@sms.ed.ac.uk and I will send you details on how to install it on your computer. If you haven't then this can be done via the EUSA website - https://www.eusa.ed.ac.uk/societies/society/eufs/. Please try and have the software installed before you arrive, if there is any issues with the installation feel free to email me with any questions.

Unfortunately Solidworks can not be installed on Mac computers, however if you would still like to learn about using CAD software you should be able to follow the majority of the tutorials using onShape (https://www.onshape.com/) which is free and runs in a browser.
