Creating a New Blocks Project in VEXcode IQ

A new Blocks project opens any time you start VEXcode IQ. But, you can also open a new Blocks or Text project after VEXcode IQ has already started.

Note: when starting a new project, a prompt will appear asking you to save if the current project has not been saved yet.

Open a Template


Templates have a special icon and are used to create a blank project with a preset device configuration.


Open the File menu and select ‘Open Examples’ to open a template project.


If using a standard robot build, like the Clawbot, a Template can be used to quickly get started with a new project.

Note: Templates related to VEX IQ (2nd generation) builds will have a blue indicator on the top left of the template icon.

Open a Blank Project


Open the File menu and select ‘New Blocks Project’ to open a new Blocks project.


To open a new Text project, open the File menu, and select ‘New Text Project.’
