I forgot to send out an email about this earlier, but the OreSat structure
meeting on this particular Saturday isn't going to be a thing. That's
because the march for science is a thing at the same time. Sorry for the
super short notice.

yeah, that's why I didn't push it too hard, we already use enough programs.
However I think it may be beneficial in this case to transfer all CAD to
grabCAD, and leave github to the electrical engineers and programmers.
I sent you an invite to the grabCAD project I made for oresat. go ahead and
download the desktop app, and play with it and let me know what you think.
the march for science should be pretty good, I am excited for it.

Yeah, that may be a good solution. I'm a little wary of bringing in *even
more* tools, but it would be good to have something other than "let's agree
to only edit these parts".

Agh, that's right. It's the same day and time here too...
