One of the best things about the Virtual Robotics Toolkit is its flexibility – it’s compatible with lots of other software!
But with great flexibility, comes great responsibility, and that’s why it’s our job to help you choose which additional software to download and use with VRT.
We’ve designed a handy little chart below for you, which sums all of this advice up (and which you can take a screenshot of so that you can refer to it later).
Option #1 – Download Only the Virtual Robotics Toolkit
The Virtual Robotics Toolkit is powerful enough on its own, that it can be used without the need for any additional software! This option is the best choice if you are a Mac user, since all of the additional software is compatible only with Windows devices.
Option #2 – Download the Virtual Robotics Toolkit and the EV3 Software
Option #3 – Download the Virtual Robotics Toolkit, LEGO Digital Designer®, and LDraw
If you’re hoping to import custom robots, but don’t want to code using the EV3 programming language, the only additional software you need to download are LEGO Digital Designer® and LDraw!
Option #4 – Download the Virtual Robotics Toolkit, the EV3 Software, LEGO Digital Designer®, and LDraw
This last option offers you the most functionality when using the Virtual Robotics Toolkit. By downloading the Virtual Robotics Toolkit, the EV3 Software, LEGO Digital Designer®, and LDraw, you will be able to code using the EV3 language, as well as import your own custom robots into the simulator.
