Looking for SME using Onshape for mechatronic / "cyber-physical" systems

Hi Onshape users, we have software that we have developed for concept-stage calculations in a collaborative Google Docs-like document. We are building a library of typical calculations - different types of springs, hydraulics/pneumatics, motors/solenoids - that might be used in a design process.
We have a potential funding opportunity (for both parties) to collaborate with an SME in a Horizon2020 country (EU, UK and other associated countries) to trial and prove this concept on a mechatronic or cyber-physical system, and we would like this to be with an Onshape user so we can combine the benefits with those of Onshape.
Let me know if this sounds interesting!

    It does sound very interesting alas I'm not in a position to provide any useful support :) 
    Unless you can squeeze it into a BTEC spec or want to have a chat to my students!

    @harmanpa, would your software perhaps be useful for modeling suspension systems (e.g. mountain bike shock absorbers) to simulate response characteristics and optimize spring and damping rates?
