Another feature (I'm sure you've thought about this a lot) would be a visual graphic representation of the part. Not everyone has RockSim or OpenRocket...

I'm trying it out now...

Addendum: The direct input is hit-and-miss. One box refused to let me type in a value, while another lets me.

Can you not see the nose cone? It is output via VML. I started to use Java, but it was another layer to learn. The spinners and input areas are in Java because HTML was not clean enough. On my PC, I have to use the numeric pad to input the minus, but other numbers work on main keyboard or numeric pad. Mysterious.
