EZ-Builder For Windows PC

EZ-Builder is a free Robot Control Software Package for Windows 8/8.1/10, Android and iOS. The software connects to the EZ-B v4 over a Wi-Fi connection to control your robot. EZ-Builder provides easy-to-use controls for vision tracking, speech recognition, programming, sharing apps, and thousands of other features...

The Microsoft Windows version of the software allows you to load robot apps from other users through our EZ-Cloud, load example robot apps included in the installation, and create your own custom robot apps. Apps that are created with EZ-Builder for Windows can be shared on the EZ-Cloud for others to use. EZ-Builder Mobile (Android or iOS) loads apps from the EZ-Cloud, and can be found here.

System Performance

EZ-Builder was designed to be very efficient and run on lower scale PC's. This does not mean that we recommend low scale PC's, even though the software will run. The recommended CPU is an Intel i5 equivalent with 4GB of RAM and Windows 8.1. The 3D designer and 3D instruction interface will use video hardware acceleration, if available.



Screen Resolution

The minimum screen resolution for EZ-Builder is 1366x768. Ideally, the best resolution for ezbuilder is 1920x1080. If you are using a 4K Display, it is best to lower your resolution (as most programs will request that) or increase the font sizing.

Microsoft Windows has a feature to configure object sizing, which will affect EZ-Builder's interface. The recommended font sizing is between 100% and 125%.. If higher font sizing is used, the button text will overlap images and wrap. You will find this setting sometimes defaults to a large value on touch screen devices from factory. To restore the font size to Windows recommended sizing, follow these settings...
