Thanks, will give sketchup a try.
Your Arduino idea is a good one.
I have made a python program which calculates the tone pitch you need to get the correct tension, I have a microphone connected to my PC and can measure the frequency when plucking the blade, I then tighten until I get the right frequency. The downside of this method is that you have to get the dimensions of the blade measured right to calculate the "string mass".
The tension meter circumvents this altogether.
