3D Tools and Support

Important resources for the 3D Simulation League are listed here. An installation guide for a competition set-up can be found here. The vital components for getting started are the simulator and viewer modules, both described below.

RoboCup 3D Tutorials for Newcomers

In 2021, the Soccer Simulation 3D League community held a set of tutorials to demonstrate how to start a team from scratch. The content of these tutorials provides all support a new team needs to start its own project and create a team to join the 3D Simulation community. See the links for each Tutorial below.
