Getting Started with Design Studio

This section gets you started with Design Studio. It introduces you to the Design Studio user interface, including selected menus and functions, the Robot Editor and the Type Editor. Then, the core building blocks of any robot, namely the step actions and data converters, are described. Finally, there are sections on patterns and expressions.

When reading this section, it is recommended that you startup Design Studio and explore the Design Studio user interface as you follow the tour. Note, however, that the tour explores the Design Studio user interface as it appears at startup if you do not create or load a robot. This means that the user interface will be quite empty, and many functions, such as debugging, will not make much sense. Don't worry about this; there will be plenty of opportunities to see many of these functions in action when you start on the tutorials following this section.
