Initial 2016 Release
41

Incorporates the "tested" motor values from motors.vex.com
42
Includes drop-downs to select motors directly from gearing sheets (or you can still enter your own numbers).
43
Includes sheets for design of drivetrains using VEXpro and WCP gearboxes (with drop-down selection of gearing options)
44
Includes a sheet for articulated drives (Butterfly, Octocanum, etc) with different wheel types, and varied gearing between wheels.
45
Some sheets have been simplified for inexperienced users.
46
Sheets have been tweaked to make it easier to have "multiple iterations" on the same worksheet.

Fixed some formatting that no one else would notice but was driving me nuts
52
Added a release history

2/14/2017
Fixed an error in the Intake mechanism sheet which applied the load based on the pulley diameter instead of radius

(Yes, that means I forgot to divide by 2 at some point)
