TETRIX Robot Build Submission Form Help

This form is for submitting instructions to share how to build your original TETRIX robot. Following are tips and instructions.  

Before You Start


To be ready to submit your build, be sure to have these things in order:
•    Have your basic instructions written out or at least outlined. This will save you time and make the process smoother.
•    If using a video, you need to upload it to YouTube first. To learn how to do that, visit their instructions (https://www.youtube.com/create_channel?next=%2Fupload&upsell=upload). After your video is loaded, go to its page on YouTube and click the Share icon. A link to share your video will appear below the icon; copy this and have it to paste into the build form.
•    Have all your files – image, text, slideshow, CADD, etc. – ready to upload and ensure that their file size is not more than 10 MB. The following file types can be used: jpg, png, doc, docx, pdf, ppt, pptx, step, stp, and dxf.
•    Use one of the following Internet browsers for the best function of this form:
  • Chrome 7+
  • Firefox 4+
  • Internet Explorer 10+
  • Safari 6+
  • Opera 12+ (Version 12 for Mac OS is disabled)

1. Under My Account, select My Builds.

6. If desired, add one or more photos of your build in the box in the middle of the block. To do this, click “Add Images/docs” on the right of the block. A window will pop open and you can either drag-and-drop the files there or you can click the window to browse to find the files.

To delete an image you have loaded, just click it and it will open in a new window. Click “Delete Image from This Step.”
 

7. On the block for the first step (under the overview), click where is says “(click text to edit)” on the left to add copy. Rename the step, if desired, and enter your copy below the step name. Click Save Changes when done.


8. To add images or other files, add them just as you did the overview picture in Step 5: click “Add Images/docs” on the right of the block. A window will pop open and you can either drag-and-drop the files there or you can click the window to browse to find the files.

To delete an image you have loaded, just click it and it will open in a new window. Click “Delete Image from This Step.”

To add videos, click “Add Video.” In the window that opens, copy the YouTube Share Code into the box for it. Click Save at the bottom of the window.


9. To add another step, below Step 1, just click “Add a Step” and one will appear.

 

10. To move a step, use the green up and down arrows in the top right corner of each step block. To delete a step, click the red X at the bottom right of each step block.


11. To see how your build submission is looking, click Preview above the introductory block. The preview will open in a new tab in the browser.

 

12. When finished with your submission, click “Submit for Publish” that is above the introductory block. The Terms and Conditions box will appear; read these before clicking Submit for Publish (or you could go back to your project and work on it more). Your form will be sent to the TETRIX Robotics administration team for review. When approved, it will appear on the Build section of the website.
