We've been looking for a way to integrate Excel and Solidworks to streamline our design and quotation process, perhaps that website will help. That R6 looks an aweful lot like a Formula SAE motor, no?

where's that demo seems like a tremendous idea. What is the demo you're speaking of? I see examples of a structural angle member and a cylinder with some API attached. Izzat it?

Would love to have some attack made by the spreadsheet-cad guys (or some API fiend) making it possible to edit weldment cut lists in a design table. What would you think the interest level may be. Anyone using weldments extensively?
