- Example - Creating a two-wheeled robot - Creating a 2 wheeled robot from scratch (simulation & downloadable)
- Create an LED Component - Creating a flowchart revolving around an LED component driven by simulation macros and functions.
- Exporting the LED Component - Exporting and saving the component, including simulation macros and properties and variables.
- Importing the LED Component - Importing the component into a new flowchart and preparing it for testing in simulation.
- Testing an Imported Component - Testing the imported LED by creating a flowchart program to run in simulation to test the component.
- Building a Complex Component - The Traffic Cone - Building and programming a component by grouping multiple elements on the System Panel.
- Exporting the Traffic Cone - Exporting and saving the component, including simulation macros and properties to prepare for testing.
- Importing and Testing the Traffic Cone - Import the component and test it in simulation by calling the previously programmed simulation macro.
