Rotor Cad files

I was wondering if anybody has/had a cad file of the rotor, I have an idea for the rotor, but I need a cad file so I can modify it.

I enjoy the irony of you using sarcasm while bashing him for using sarcasm.

I figured I would, but it never hurts to ask. I was just hoping to save a few hours dicking around in autocad.

I just stumbled onto this thread and am in search of a CAD file(s) for the rotor shells. If anyone happened to do this already could you possibly send me a PM?

I had CAD files that I made of the rotor, can't find them though. Do some research and figure them out for yourself. If you can't figure how to do that you are in the wrong major anyways.

Well its not a matter of knowing how to do it, but rather time. What I plan to use them for I can't really justify spending the time to make it from scratch.

This is really random/ off topic, but it would be really funny if you left a few home-made rotor shells laying in places around your field. Then people would be like "look, I found a rotor!"....

Well may sound a little lame, but I want to try to make my rotor look like a michigan football helmet. I'm not sure exactly how to do it as each way I've thought of comes with problems.

Paint wouldn't work because I want it to be removable if needed. A vinyl sticker(s) seems like the best option because its cheap and mass producible, but the round shape of a rotor would make it difficult to make from scratch. P.s I have no experience at all with something like this... Therefore I want a CAD file to mess around with and get dimensions and such and see if it would even look cool. Suggestions or Comments?

I'd try contacting Dye, I know it's all patented etc.

Never know, they might let go of something.

If you're referring to what I think you are... scoreboard.

Either way you won't have to worry about our team paying off refs as our school hardly even recognizes let alone funds us. Love going to a liberal gun hating university.

Not while the rotor is still being made and sold

I love seeing people ask for model files and cad drawings of things that no self respecting coorperation would ever knowingly release

Thats just foolish

Plus, what would the difference really be? The shell would be smaller and you'd lose maybe 10 balls/hopper? Not happening/worth it. If they wanted to do it, they would have already. Why flood the market with a bigger/smaller version. Look at the Velocity JN/SR. There's really no difference. One holds like 10-20 more balls (senior). At that point, it doesn't really matter.
