Tools and Parts Needed

WinCAPS III and robot project.

Step-by-Step Guide

Step 1

Create a backup of the applicable WinCAPS project.


Step 2

The backup will create a project folder.

This project folder contains but is not limited to, some folders, and a file with the extension ".wpj".*
*Just sending the ".wpj" file is not sufficient.

Step 3

Zip the entire project folder.

Step 4

Attach the entire zip file to your email and send it.

Step 5

If *.zip files are not allowed to be sent due to a security policy, we have had good luck with changing the file extension to something other than *.zip.  For example *.piz is a popular choice.  

To change the file extension, check the box allowing you to see File name extensions.

Step 6

Change the extension to *.piz, and resend.

Step 7

If your project is not able to be emailed due to file size, let us know and we will set up an alternative method to transfer.
