Upfront Weight Budgeting Tool for Concept Development
by: kramarczyk

Simple excel based tool that allows quick, upfront weight budgeting for bot systems.

Spreadsheet is intended to allow user to make weight budgeting choices early on in the design process with some degree of feedback as to the effect of those choices. The user can assign a weight, size and location for a series of subsystems and have a total weight, approximate CG location, and tipping angles returned. Additionally, the overall system is compared to a user specified size and weight criteria with simple pass/fail flags to alert the user when the criteria have been violated.

Ideal for WAB (Whiteboard Aided Design)
